Small spring, cistern, then about 60 foot drop in 250 feet of fairly
straight pipe to point of use. Pipe is reduced from 2 inch diameter to 3/4
inch 30 feet from pressure indicator, and goes through 3 90 degree and 2 45
degree bends and rises about 2 feet. Can we increase the water pressure
from current 14 psi by straightening the pipe or using more of the 2 inch
