A Handyman Helping Hand

water pressure

Christmas day we had a baseboard heating line freeze up while we were away, and it flooded the room, and ran our well dry. We did not discover this until the next day and had our heating pipes fixed(it froze in two places.) Our well is recovered now but since then our waterpressure is very low. We had a gentleman here to also fix an adaptor on our pump, and he thought our well was really low and reduced the setting for the pump to shut off, instead of at 50 it shuts off at 40. We have since then realised that there is plenty of water in the well, but we have very low water pressure in the cold water faucets. We have a Myers Pump, with the pressure adjustor on the side. There are two nuts to turn, one on a longer spindle and one on a shorter one, it says pumppro on the cover. Can you tell me which one to turn in which direction, and how far? Thank you.
