Preasure Tank
[Return to Topics]

I have a jet pomp and it runs 24/7. It only does this when my water cooled AC unit is running. I have had several different service people out here and none of them can agree. On says its my jet pump not pupmping out enogh PSI to the Ac unit the others say its my preasure tank. My question is...If my jet pump, pumps water every were in the house and the guage says 50psi than my problem should be in the preasure tank...I have lived here for 8 years and just last year I started having this problem. Any sugestions?

if there was a problem with the pressure tank, the pump would
cycle to often. since yours is running continuously, you either
have a weak pump, clogged sand point, or your water cooled A/
C is taking a lot of water. i think if you still have good pressure
in the house when the A/C is running, then i would not worry
about it.

Yup, the good news is - if your system holds pressure it's not leaking. Most pressure tanks have a bladder in them nowdays. (Usually not like a balloon - it's just a kinda rubber disc that floats around and keeps the water from absorbing the air in the tank.) Whether yours has one or not, there's good pages on the net about recharging pressure tanks - basically shut the pump off, open a faucet to let a few gallons of water outa the system, and replace it with air in the tank. (thru the little tire-type air fitting on top) The pump and switches should bring the pressure back up and regulate it for you. If it helps, you won for now. If it starts needing air too often, replace the pressure tank. :)
