Well pressure leak
Posted by Barbara Kozloski on July 07, 2003 at 22:39:06:
I have had a few plumbers come out to try and solve a pressure leak I am experiencing. The pressure drops about a lb a minute without running any water. I have had my pump replaced (aermoter), new check valve, new pvc installed (45 ft) to pump and am still experiencing a problem. Each time, pressure would hold for about a couple of weeks and then the problem would return. the thought was sediment was jamming check valve. One plumber now wants to rip up the connection from the well to my house. I am hesitant to do this (cost and the fact the pipe is under my patio and house with no basement) since if it was in the line to the house, how would the problem have been temporarily fixed twice? Any ideas?
