Pressure Tank
Posted by Jeff on June 10, 2004 at 08:23:15:
I believe that my presssure tank after about 20 years has gone bad. My pump was starting to run almost as soon as a faucet was opened and no air was released when I briefly pressed the schrader valve but there was no water released either. I believe that the tank became water bound. I drained the tank and reset the pressure in the tank to about 38 pounds (my pressure switch is a 40/60).

I have 2 questions about this is it likely that my old pressure tank is bad ?

My second question is if I replace the old pressure tank with a new one, can the old tank that is not leaking be lift in place for additional water storage?
