Pressure Tank - need to replace?
Posted by Jim on May 18, 2004 at 20:39:06:
I happened to be in the basement recently and heard a gurgling sound coming from the pressure tank. On closer observation, I now understand that this happens at about 50 psi as the pump is raising the pressure from 40 to 60. A couple days ago, the sound lasted a short period of time...a few seconds. Today, the sound continues until the pump stops at 60 psi.

Is it reasonable to guess that water is leaking through the diaphram and it is time to replace the Well-x-trol WX203? It's probably 10-12 years old.
