      I have relatively low water pressure when I attempt to water my lawn. If I hook up more than 3 sprinkers – there isn’t enough presure to drive them. If I have water going on in the house – forget it!. I have public water (not a well, but my house is on a hill, so they do have to send it “up” to me. Anyway to improve the pressure? email to jimkarl@md.prestige.net Thanks

      Jim, I don’t think you have a pressure problem. You have a volume problem. You can only get a certain amount of flow through a specific size pipe no matter what the pressure. Sounds like you need to enlarge your service line from the main to your house.
