    So how have you eliminated clogged intake plumbing as the problem?

    get a pedicure and you'll feel all better

    Yes bootz

    we have killer flow 100 yards past the pumps
    great pressure on an area of the main

    one strange observation is the water when tested comes out nasty brown then clear

    still ninimal flow and pressure at problem area

    How far away is the problem area from the great flow? I'm wondering if there is an isolation valve in the mainline somewheres, that is partly closed.

    Reverse flush main. Possible debris clogging up fitting (if you're lucky).
