The range of normal residential water pressure is from 30 to 80 psi. Ideally, the pressure should be set between 45 and 60 pounds in most residential Plumbing systems.If the pressure rises too high particularly above 80 psi, plumbing fixtures and appliances (primarily water heaters) could be damaged or leak excessively.

Why does water not boil at 100 degree when it is under more than a normal atmosphere pressure?

A liquid boils at a temperature at which its vapor pressure becomes equal to the pressure above its surface. Since you have increased the pressure to higher than normal atmospheric pressure, the water will not boil at 100oC, this is because the vapor pressure of the water at 100oC is now lower than the atmospheric pressure above the water's surface. In order for the water to boil its vapor pressure must be increased to at least the higher atmopsheric pressure. To do that you need to increase the temperature of the water since vapor pressure increases as the temperature of the water increases. This is why water will boil higher than 100oC at a higher than normal atmospheric pressure.

It has lost it's prime, the impeller is bad or the pressure switch is bad. If you have water at normal pressure, it is probably the pressure switch.
