instead he got a buddy plumber to say "everythings is in good shape"

we start doing obstriction finding...

cant fix the issure..

Old company comes in, guy knew pumps well..wired both pumps on the same switch 1 tank and the system sings..

THAT REP tanked all our time and his money to try and fix a non existing problem and made me look like an A$$HOLE.

From now on I'm giving my opinion on jobs forcefully if need be..
Sooooooo that's what happened!

I've got one system like that. Uses two 5 H.P. pumps and two pressure switches.
With the amount of service that this system requires a 10 HP pump and VFD could have been installed several times over.
