Pump System that is currently installed is a Gould's J04853L/J5SH/V250, we would like to replace this with a more efficient system.

The house has 3 stories, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half Bathroom. The master bathroom has 2 shower heads. It has 3/4" copper piping for most of the lines. The Master Bathroom is furthest from pump.

The present pump is fed by an underground pump that outputs about ~5 -10 GPM.

The pressure with the present system is very poor if two bathrooms are in use and/or wash machine, etc.

Please let us know about a system that would make it more efficient. Please also gives the cost of system with all part needed for the upgrade.

You might want to look at the Aqua Boost system. The biggest issue is that the pump must a have a constant flooded suction. At the same time, you will need to make sure your well pump can keep up with new pump. this system will definitely deliver a higher output pressure. ... cts_id=370
