Has anyone chared water between two homes with one pump and switch? I have two water tanks already purchased and trying to figure this out. About 70 feet between houses and pump switch is at one house. Is it better to have a tank at each house, or two in seqence at the pump switch? Want to allow houses to both have good water pressure.

Does this seem right? The tanks would each be charged at 38 PSI for a 40/60 pump switch. 1/2 horse pump.

Hi there,

I have a shallow well, and I use a two tank system.both of my tanks are holding 32 PSI, which is just enough preasure for what i need.

But, the way tha it goes, is, in from the well, up through the pump, and then it gets split off , to each tank, then from the tanks to the hot water heater, and branched off to giv eme cold water aswell.

Pretty simple. This has been like this in this configuration for well over 20 years. It works.
