How does a well water system work?

Most well tanks operate with an air bladder that creates pressure as water is pumped in from the well. This pressure is utilized to move water through the pipes in the house. When the pressure reaches about 40-60 psi, the pump shuts off.Did you know well tanks come in different sizes? If your well tank is too small then your well pump will run more frequently. This puts an increased workload on your well pump and could lead to premature failure. Making sure your well tank is properly sized may not only prolong the life of your well pump, but can save you money as well.

How much pressure should be in a water tank?
