|In response to Re: no water pressure|
: i recently had to relace my well pump tank,it was rotted out on the bottom losing water everywhere.went to home depot and bought new pump tank.weird that the old one had an inlet and an outlet but the new one has one hole for in and out going water supplies.i installed as directions said to do.now when ever i open a faucet,washing machine or shower no pressure at all.the tank came pre-charged at 40 psi. so iset the pressure switch to turn on ay 42 psi and shut off at 62 psi.please help getting very frustrated and do not want to call a plumber.feel free to email me with a reply.
What type of pump do you have? Dos the pump come on when it should?
If you have a jet pump, it may not be capable of building that much pressure.
To plumb the new tank you had to add a 'tee' wit hthe long leg going into the tank inlet, the pump on one of the other two legs and the house on the other on.
