Tip & How-To about Plumbing
One of the common problems with having a well for you water supply is that you have the maintenance of the water pump and the related things that are necessary to make that all work. One of the most important parts of that system is the water well tank or the water pump tank. This tank is what keeps the well pump from having to turn on and off every time you draw a few drops of water.
In the past the tanks were made with an air valve that injected just a bit of air into the tank every time the pump started. This helped to keep some air in the tank and also gave the annoying problem of air coming out of the faucet at times. To make this better well water pump tanks are now made with a diaphragm that separates the air from the water.
This keeps the water cushion trapped inside the tank. That is great and makes the well tank virtually maintenance free as long as there are not holes in the rubber bladder that separates the water and the air.
There are some easy ways to tell if your well pump tank is not working the way that is should work. And also here are some things that you can do to maximize the capacity of the tank.
