In response to Re: pressure tank
If it were a ruptured bladder water should come out of the air valve. Are you testing the pressure with the system entirely drained? If not then your test is inaccurate.

: My pressure tank is set to turn on the pump at 40 psi then shut off at 60 psi. here in the last week or so, the pump has been running every time a toilet is flushed, shower goes on etc. I noticed that when the pump comes on the psi goes to 45 then shoots up to 60 and the pump shuts off and then the psi drops back to just above 40. usually it would pump up to 60 then gradually decrease as the water was used until it hit40 and the pump came back on. I can manually force the contacter to make the pump come on to build the pressure back up but it shoots up very quickly. psi on tank is 35 with a tire gauge. wondering if there could be a hole in the bladder. what do you think?
: thanks for your thoughts
