    sorry for the delay. It's a 3/4hp pump installed in about 2005 at 220' deep. I thought 58psi at 7gpm might be normal, even if it's not it doesn't seem like it should be much better than that in a...

    The new pressure tank is in. Looks good, everything is almost right with the world.

    Dumping water from the outside spigot is approximately 6.5 - 7gpm. The system takes 2:35 for the pressure to...

    I used the usgs site to find the water table level in my area. I would think this gives you an indication of what to expect. You'll need to know the the height of your house above or below the sample...

    Alright, disappointing to some I opted for the old school tank. I was really trying to justify the valve purchase especially since it coupled with a small tank was less expensive. After careful study...

    The valve on my current tank is not to blame unfortunately. It's gotta be the bladder. It's a Well-X-Trol surprisingly. One thing they did right in the plumbing some 20yrs ago.

    I agree, even I...

    Alright fellas. I found the article interesting and frustrating at the same time. The 20gal tank coupled with the CSV is contrary to the recommended tank size by nearly 5gal. One thing that bugs me...

    Ah, very good sir, I'm glad 3/4 pipe is ok. I read the rest on your website. I completely agree with the function of the valve, the one thing I can't argue with is constant pressure. Since a truly...

    Very good sir. thank you for your help. I hadn't considered the valve leaking actually. That too would make sense. I drained the system a bit ago. The air pressure checked at 32psi though I'm sure I...

    Well, yes :) The bladder pumps up fine to pump start pressure -2psi (I found several articles) which gives me glorious and sustained pressure for a time. The next night it was -10psi. I didn't check...

    Stagger the holes so there's some material left. I actually plugged the end with a 1/2" wood dowel I tapered on the lathe then rammed inside. An actual plumbing cap won't fit the hole... I'm not sure...

    The well has been parked for 24hrs now with very little water use and a strong chlorine odor.

    It's a PVC casing. I'd read about air in PVC, but I figured the pressure of the ground on the pipe would offset any pressure I could put in.

    I'm going to do some more research in the off chance I...

    Alright, thank you Dana. Let me do some figuring. Obviously the only benefit of the system I propose is the insulating vacuum. If I lose vacuum, I might as well build a flat plate.
