water pressure

i need a simple fix to a water pressure problem. I have a spring feed well and the pump is in the well. The cold water storage tank is in the basement. Our water pressure is not the best. Will increasing the air pressure in the tank by a couple pounds give me more water pressure. Someone told me not to mess with it and someone told me it would work. Any suggestions to my problem?

You need to increase both the pressure switch settings on the pump AND increase the air pressure in the tank.

I suggest that you post in the Wells category for a better response.
