Question about Air Tools & Compressors
My pump only comes on as I need water. No reserve? The pump goes on/off/on/off when the toilet is flushed. You run any tap while the toilet is being filled and the pump will continuously run till full and shut off but the pressure drops right back to 20psi? I don't know if this could be the foot valve (the water seems to be at the pump and not flowing back to the well, and it doesn't come on by itself when idle). I have a shallow well and the lift is less than 25', The pump has a built in tank but when I checked the pressure from the air fitting, water comes out? Is this normal?Any suggestions?? Thank you Bill
No it is not normal
if it is like a round tank and you use air pressure to set the operation then to have water there indicates that the diaphragm that separates the water and air has failed
nothing to with the foot valve but a non return valve at that tank or lack or set pressure

sounds like a bad or broken valves in the head. crankcase needs a vent which is sometimes a small hole drilled into the oil fill plug and will normally blow some air out the vent while it runs

It sounds like your intake valve is worn or defective. Take the head apart again and look to see if the valve is sealing properly. If you post a comment with your model number I can look up the specific parts at sears parts.
If your compressor is functioning properly, air should not come out of the intake muffler (filter)

Does it shut off at 25 psi or just keep running and never build more pressure than that? Also, did this come on gradually or suddenly? Also, was it being used regularly when it happened or had it been sitting for a while?
