Forum Title: Increase house water pressure
I have a private well, and would like to increase my water pressure. My house uses radiator heat as well, so the furnace is also the water heater. Do I need to do anything additional to increase the hot water pressure as well? Do I have any considerations on account of the radiators? I'm pretty sure they are steam radiators, as they have small pressure valves at the tops. Thanks!

The heating system should be self regulated. You can always turn up the pressure switch setting for more pressure IF the pump is capable of going higher. Jet pumps are iffie in that regard and submersibles are almost always capable of going higher in pressure. If you have a bladder tank, it should be pressurized to match the pressure switch setting.
