Need to increase water pressure in external water hose for spray
applicator. I do not want to tinker with main pressure switch on
water house supply from well. I have spare pressure switch, pressure
tank and electric pump. Can I rig them to external garden hose for
desired effect? Want about 60 - 70 lbs pressure.
Sure - that's exactly what do it yourself car washes do. Keep in mind that
unless you are drawing from a storage tank you are trading pressure for volume.
That is, the higher the boost pressure, the less volume you will be pushing out
If there is adequate water pressure elsewhere, then the problem is likely to
be due to sediments & buildups inside the pipes to the faucet, or even the
The answer to your question is, yes, that should work as long as you have
the electricity fed from a properly rated ckt.
Yes. when you hookup a gas/electric pressure washer, it is basically
the same thing. Just because you increase the pressure doesn't
necessarily mean you increase or decrease GPM's use. The GPM's will be
regulated by the nozzle(s) you are using at the pressure you are
using, along with other factors such as size of hose, length of hose
Volume (gallons available) will be dictated by the amount of GPM's
your well is producing in conjuction with how much storage capacity is
