How does the air get in non-bladder tanks?
I have a problem keeping air in my non-bladder tank and have to constantly drain it to put air back in. Adding to the problem is my AC is a water to air heat pump so the water is on quite a bit and quite often.
I realize a large air bladder tank is optimal but my finances can't afford it.
Specs: 1.75 HP deep well pump 375' deep with a large non-bladder air tank.
No leaks air or water show up anywhere.
I thought that the surge of the pump coming on somehow added air to the tank a little each time but obviously this is not working so a complete draining and refill only lasts about a 2 weeks or so and it's water logged again.
Any suggestions of which part is "broke"?
