    Sir If you increased your pressure and did not take into consideration your pipe size and piping materials You kind sir are looking for an RE PIPE as you just most likely just caused excessive velocity ESPECIALLY on hot water piping.

    Seeing how this velocity on most ferrous piping will cause erosion and on non ferrous systems pitting your would be better off doing proven hydraulic principles.

    Anyone can say INCREASE pressure but knowing what can happen takes a person with brains and common sense.

    You could safely install flow restrictors to prevent one shower/faucet from sucking up all the VOLUME and causing a pressure drop PLUS you would save water and energy plus helping your piping last a long time.

    I would suggest you contact a REAL Plumber who has a masters license to size your system to optima performance. You certainly dont want the house “Jack built”
