In response to Re: Pressure Tanks
: I was told to drain down the pressure tank and bring the air pressure upto 2 lbs. below low setting. I have an air pump that will fill a car tire from flat to 32 psi in about 15 minutes...
: I ran the pump for about 5 minutes, and it barely changed from 12 to 15 psi. Do I just need to be patient, or is something else wrong?

: Thank you again!
Check to see if this 12-15 lbs HOLDS. Is there any water coming from the valve core when its depressed? If ,after approx 15 minutes if it still has the same pressure, then keep pumping. (the final several pounds is always the hardest. Have patience. Let us know how you make out. Hube
