thanks for the info, i have found out since reading your reply,that my softener is in bypass mode, so that is eliminated correct? If i turn the pressure spring on the pump and turn up to say 45psi do i have to get the on pressure up to 25psi to keep the on and off 20 in the difference. will it hurt anything to have an on pressure of 20psi and off pressure of 45psi? Would increasing the air pressure to 25psi in my bladder holding tank help or harm anything? thanks
