    Default Low water pressure fix

    Hi everyone, I purchased a property in Okaihau Northland. The town runs a mains system but my water pressure is very low (a 2 lt jug takes around 25 seconds to fill) so I'm thinking of putting an external tank hooked to the main and water pump in to boost the pressure. Will this have any affect on my system? The house was built in the 70's and still has original hot water tank etc.
    Interested to read your thoughts.

    Id check to see the problem is not isolated to your property by seeing if neighbors have similar problems..

    Is it possible their may be an incorrect restrictor valve inline with the supply to your house?
