Question about Plumbing
Yeah, if it won't shut off the pressure tank is not getting pressure to it or leaking out, first the cheapest ideas to try would be have someone turn water on when you are looking at the pressure gage, what psi is it, you want atleast 60, then, havet them turn off water, keep watching the gage for a minute see what it does if pump still runs its not building pressure so, is this a new install, or has it just started happening, if its new did you prime the pump? if you did the pressure gage may need replacing this is cheap, if that doesn't fix the problem, then you need to check your pressure tank the bladder may be worn out, so if I was you, I would also check for air leaks make sure all fittings are tight, you can take your hand and place on pump when running, turn water on to do this, or you may be able to hear air leaking, definate sign that your not building pressure so pump cant work with pressure tank, now if your bladder is still good once airleaks are fixed the bladder will build the pressure it needs then your done.
