    :confused: Hello, we drained and repressured our tank, but when you use any amount of water, the pump kicks on for about 10 secounds and then kicks off. It does this about every 20 secounds when water is being used. Any advice?

    It still may be the tank. Relieve all the pressure in the water lines and check the air pressure again in the tank and see if it has changed.

    :confused: :confused: Thanks. I will try to drain the tank again. Also when you are taking a shower or using the water, the pressure goods from really good to ok, you can hear a differance in the sound also. I am assuming it is really good when the pump kicks back on, and ok when it kicks off.:eek:

    Sounds like you didn't really get the water out. And the tank may be bad.
