Maxcap system help.

HI GUYS, I'm pretty sure I know the answer but some advice would help.
I moved to a house in another town. The water pressure measures 25 PSI
My system did work for a short period of time but the ASOV would not completely close for awhile. [waste water running a bit]. Then, the system will not make any water at all. Like the ASOV won't open. Filters are all fine.
Am I to assume that the ASOV is now faulty? and/or do I need a booster pump.

Yes, you definitely need a booster pump. However, it's very difficult to make a booster pump with its pressure switch activate at the same time as the ASO, so we have been using an electric solenoid valve instead of the ASO for proper and positive operation.

See the BPHF-PS-093-115 System here:

and the install diagrams here, on page 11:
