WATER PRESSURE TANKS
Quality Water Pressure Tanks & Repair Services
Well systems use well pumps that are capable of pumping large amounts of water to the appliances throughout your house. However, with frequent use and from rapidly and unnecessarily turning on and off, well pumps can fail prematurely. By using a pressure tank, water can be used leisurely over long periods of time with the pump then running for a short amount of time to fill the tank again.

The way a pressure tank functions is simple, there are 2 chambers – one with air and one with a diaphragm that holds the water. The 2 chambers are separated, and kept under pressure to allow water to be distributed on demand, when the pump is engaged the tank is refilled with water.

When a pump turns on, it’s absolutely crucial that your water pressure tank is in good working order. Without a properly functioning pressure tank, the electric pump in your well frequently starts and stops. This overuse can burn and damage the motor’s components, risking pump failure and the costly repairs that follow.

Instructions for checking the air charge in your tank (normal well system – not storage tank system)
- Turn off the power to the pump.
- Open hose bib closest to the pressure tank and drain pressure tank.
- When the tank is empty check the air charge on the top of the tank. The air charge should be 2 psi less than what the pump is set to turn on at. If you have a pump saver we recommend it be 2-3 psi lower than what the pump turns on at because the pump saver has a 3 second delay.
