pressure tank gauge shows quick loss of pressure as soon as well pump stops
Posted by Sheridan on August 07, 2001 at 00:58:06:
Due to a high electric bill we have discovered that our well pump is running nearly constantly. It turns on and off correctly with the right pressure according to the gauge, however as soon as the pump stops the gauge quickly falls. The sound of back running water from throughout the house occurs when the pump switch is manually turned off. Is this a pressure tank problem or something with a check valve? Thanks for your help.
