    Default air in my water system

    I have a shallow well with a pump/tank in my basement and it has an air problem. I replaced the suction line to the pump 3 or 4 years ago and thoiught the problem was solved but am still seeing the problem. Typically happens after doing laundrey. the pump loses suction and I have to re-prime, often several times. Foot valve is good. Could the pump be the culprit?
    Thanks
    Steve

    Sounds like the well is running dry.
