I am using a 1/2 HP shallow well jet pump. I have other issues I need to get fixed before trying to bump pressure. The old 3/4" galvanized suction line to the well must have rusted through. Someone pushed a 1/2" copper line through it and that is my suction side pickup.
I need to get that replaced before changing the pump press sw. Just another project to get to.
Remind me, 2 PSI above minimum press for bladder?
