thats pretty hard to due on a well system not saying it can't be done just hard alot has to be accounted for... as far as increasing pressure ..you could change pressure switch to 30 -50 ...again would like to see system

you can adjust the pressure on both switches 20-40 30-50 if you read instructions most don't play with them. they are designed for wells you should not play with them....some people do...
