    Short cycling

    I have a 30/50 switch and a 20 gallon pressure tank. During the last two weeks or so, I noticed slight but frequent drops in water pressure that go away after a couple seconds. Running water and I see the pressure drop from 50 to 40 relatively slowly and then drop off sharply to 30 and the pump...

    New Tank & Pump but still short cycling???

    My Flotec 30 gallon tank's bladder went and the tank was rusty so I purchased a Wellmate Pentair WM-9, 30 gallon fiberglass tank. I decided to purchase a new pump as well, seeing my pump was used 11 years ago when I moved into the house. I bought a 1hp Eco-Flo EFCWJ10. I replaced the tank...

    Short cycling issue. Unsure if system is even set up correctly!

    Hello folks. I'm hoping to get some advice here as the plumbers in my area that I've had out seem to not understand my rural water system. To start with, the actual problem I'm having is my pressure tank/well pump is short cycling. The stable (no draw) pressure is about 50 psi, but when there...
