: : BTW.. I also adjusted the pressure switch and precharge pressure in the tank accordingly. The pump just won't build pressure to the old cutoff of 70... just stays on at about 52 lbs. So i had to adjust everything down to fit it until i fix it. Current settings: swtich is at 28/48 and precharge is at 26.

: What is happening now that you have adjusted to this lower off/on setting. Does it achieve the 48 cut-off? Hube

Everything works fine at the lower settings. That is probably the most frustrating part. One other piece of information... there has been an large amount of sediment/flakes in our water recently which I attributed to the old tank. Everything seemed better last week with the new tank but now some of the sediment/flakes are back too.
