Water pressure problem
Posted by Ted Johnson on May 15, 19100 at 14:00:30:
From time to time I lose water pressure throughout the house. So far this has always happened in
the morning. The water runs for a while then stops. (We have a private well with a precharged storage
tank.) I have replaced the pressure switch. When I check the pressure gauge, it drops but the pump
doesn't kick on. There is no pressure for a while then the pump kicks on and builds pressure back up and things work well the rest
of the day and for a couple of days. I noticed that the contact points on the pressure switch are
closed at this time- but the pump doesn't kick on(or at least doesn't build pressure) for whatever
reason. I have also noticed that when the pump is working and achieves the set pressure that the
contact points don't open up. We a water softner with a chorine injection tank tied in- if thats relevant?? Any thoughts or ideas would be
appreciated. Thanks.
