water pressure

Is there any way to increase the water pressure in the house? I have a well and the pressure on the pump is 40-60 psi. I have it ran to a inside manifold. I am wondering if I can put an assest pump at the manifold and increase the pressure that way.

Jerry,

Where are you measuring the preassure? What size pipe do you have thru the house? What type of pipe do you have thru the house? Do you have tight 90's or long sweep 90's? Do you have a pressure regulator? If so, what is that set to?

Depending on the size and type of pipe, the connections can with stand only so much pressure. You may want to consider the size and type of pipe coming into the house, as well as the size and type within the house. I would never use a water pump inside the house. I bet that the pipes are not up for that.
