i have a well with a water traetment sys. whenever we use water from one sorce we lose all pressure to others. In addition the point source we are using is still less than satisfactory. Is there an adjustment I can make myself to correct? Or is there a filter somewhwere I need to look for?

If yours is a typical well system, you probably have a pressure tank that may be overdue to be bled and repressurized.

If your pressure tank is the type with a rubber bladder, you can take a tire pressure gauge and check the pressure. It should be near your cut-on pressure (and that should be posted on the tank).
Get a portable air tank and pressurize it back to where it is supposed to be.
You also can check your pressure switch, and set it up to increase the pressure. Good Luck!
