Question: Why does my water seem to lose pressure and then increase while I am in the shower?
Answer: Most likely you have a problem with your well tank. You can either check your tank as outlined below or have us come out and test/repair it for you. The longer you have your pump come on and off the more damage may be done to your well pump.

Question: Why do I need a bladder tank and how does it work?
Answer: The bladder in the tank acts likely a spring to push water ‘into your water pipes. Water cannot be compressed so the tank uses something like a balloon. Water is pumped into the tank and against the balloon, the balloon compresses and the pump continues to pump water until the balloon is compressed all the way. When there is a call for water from your kitchen sink, the balloon expands and pushes the water in your tank into your water pipes. This is done without turning your pump on again until the water in your tank is almost gone. By using this type of tank you stop the need for starting your well constantly, save electric, and burning out your pump motor (it requires up to 4 times the amount of energy to start the motor on a pump then it does to run it). The main reason for the tank is to stop the on and off cycles of the
Question: How do I set my pressure in my bladder?
Answer: You first need to make sure there is no water pressure it the system. Shut the electrical power to the well pump system and open the faucets in your house till the water stops. Take an accurate tire pressure gauge and get a reading from the Schrader valve (looks like the valve on your tire) on the top of the tank (located on the top of the tank in most cases, see you instruction manual for others). If there is water or no pressure in your tank bladder it means there is a hole in your bladder and the tank will need to be replaced. Just give us a call for fast and reliable service. Next locate your pressuretrol (the normally gray box with the electrical wires going to them). Remove the cover (make sure the power is off, there is enough power to KILL you) and on the inside there will be marked the pressure cut in and cut out. You want two PSI lower than the cut in pressure. For example if you have a 40-60 pressuretrol your tank pressure must be 38PSI. 40-2=38
