It used to be 40-60 psi until a rusted cast iron nipple that attached the
guage broke. I took the pressure switch apart at the diaphram so I could
take the rest of the fixture to the well compamy without disconeccting the
wiring. When I put all the fittings together, the pressure was different
than before. I put a new gauge on and it was a little better, but still not
40-60. Is it ok if it goes higher than 60? It's 65 now.
It probably wont be a problem unless you have some crazy amount of hot water
Keep an eye on any relief valves and if nothing leaks for a while then its
You could back it down a bit if you are worried; 5 psi is not a huge amount
especially considering the accuracy of today's gauges.
yes, look under the cover it should tell you which is the pressure
adjustment , you prob want the big one.
you just loosen the nut to turn it down (CCW).
BE CAREFULL THE VOLTAGE ON THE WIRES WILL MELT YOU !!!!!!
Turn power off when messin with it.
