    you cannot adjust water pressure, its preset at the factory.

    Some pumps have an adjuster for the cutoff point....ie: the pump continues running with the taps off.

    There are two ways of controlling a submersible pump.. micro switch on each tap or a pressure switch

    Most with a submersible pump have micro switches on the taps.. if your pump doesn't stop you have a faulty switch.. look under the sink, if there are wires at the tap then you don't have a pressure switch..

    If you have no wires at the taps then have a look near the discharge of the pump for this pressure switch.. it is adjusted by screwing the knob in and out

    as Jim said, but the knob only controlls the cut off pressure....not the actual water pressure.

    The only way to increase pressure is a new, higher pressure pump
