    The precharge pressure above the bladder would completely empty the tank, even it the water had to go up a floor or more.
  2. Before you go digging it up for such a slow leak,...

    Before you go digging it up for such a slow leak, have you confirmed there is no usage in the house? A leaking toilet flapper or an R/O filter? A softener leaking to drain?

    If you have a...

    Lifting the pump won't help. It is all based on the height above the water, not the depth below the water. That pump is too far off the curve....
  4. OK so now we know what your intention is but we...

    OK so now we know what your intention is but we still don't know why you want to set it so low. Is it tripping out too soon with water still left in the well? I don't know the pump curve for that...

    None of it makes sense to me except the title and Reach4 already answered that. More info may help.
    Model of pump?
    Model of controller?
    What is your intention?

    Look for a commercial cleaner called Zolvex made by Wood Wyant. Not cheap but works great.

    Normally, during the drilling process, a slurry of bentonite is used which should seal between the borehole and casing.


    If that is in fact happening, it strongly suggests that there is leakage...

    In my former home, I had a shallow dug well with concrete rings. The contractor used poly pipe tied with a rope to hold the footvalve a few inches off the bottom. The cheap plastic footvalve moved...

    BINGO! You got it.

    After you drain the tank, it could take months before enough air builds up to the point there is surplus. That was why I said that lots of folks with non-functioning AVCs just drain the tank...

    Based on what you wrote, I'm guessing you cannot see where the water is leaking out. If you are sure that it is not overflowing the top, then it could be leaking at the pitless. There are in fact...

    I do buy the one-size-fits-all heat shrink splice kits at the big box store cuz that is all that is available in this one horse town. I just choose to throw away the crimp barrels and wrap and then...

    I really do understand what you are going through. Where I live in this small town, my choices are even more limited. Dare to challenge the wisdom of the Pros without scruples, and you quickly gain...

    I don't want to get mired down in semantics about whether or not there is a snifter. A snifter valve may take many forms. Essentially, it is a one-way valve that lets in air but seals on pressure. ...

    Funny how when a DIYer makes a small comment that the Pros feel the need to counter. I'm sure all you Pros use nothing but the best connectors and the best tools to crimp them. That said, I can see...

    I'm sure the OP is long gone. There is no point in guessing at it since the OP failed to provide enough details.

    Most of the pros hate torque arrestors as much as they hate rope.

    Many pumps these days come with plastic threads and when using plastic pipe, you can tighten them only so much. Any situation...

    Correct.

    Bladder tanks have them but so too do snifters.

    Hydro-pneumatic tanks like yours require airmakers which in turn require a checkvalve above the static water height. These are often...

    I am well aware of how a snifter/bleeder/check works but you stated the only check is in the pump so, you cannot have it both ways.

    For a bleeder to open and bleed out water and for the snifter to...

    My only concern about no rope and no torque arrestor is the possibility that the torque might unscrew the pump from the drop pipe.

    When it comes to making the wire connection at the pump, I don't...

    If that is the only check, then the system would always be under pressure in which case the only way air could enter the system is through the pump intake.

    None the less, if the tank is...

    Unless it is a really short run in good diggings, that would not be my next step. If you have a leak, how do you know it is not in the well?

    I would first pressure test the line from the house. ...
