Thread: spurting water

  1. #1

    Default spurting water

    I get a lot of air spurting in my faucets. Pump seems to run alot. Looks like a galvanized tank. Any thing I can check?

    static water level in the well relative to where the pump is positioned?

    If it's an above ground pump, look for leaks on the suction side of the pump and piping.
    Since you have a galvanized tank, try turning the power to the pump off, open a drain and let the tank drain off. You might try removing a pipe plug from the tank once the pressure drops. Galvanized tanks will sometimes get too much air in them.
