    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?

    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.
