Im personally not techincal enuff to hv did repair myself. Marshas team was responsive w/reasonable rates and fixed it so i didnt hv too. I guess it depends if u can fix it urself or not. They were gr8 tho. Small family operation n reliable. Id call them for sure. :) good luck either way

Turn off the power to your well pump.

Drain the tank completely. A lot of air will be released.

Turn the power back on to the pump and refill your tank and the problem will be solved for a couple months.

On the larger deepwell tanks there is a float that should release the air automatically, but draining the tank periodically works just as well.
just asking

Turn off your power to your well open the water spickets let it drain until you dont hear water and air coming out. There is a thing call a air volume control on your tank with a pressure gauge on it unscrew that gauge then get a pipe wrench or something to take out you air volume. Go to coleys eletric and get a new one put it in use puddy or some plumber tape them screw in the gauge when putting it back in just hand tighen it dont over tighten it if you do you will crack your air volume control now good luck P S You can tighten it a little more than hand tighten it all you want it to do is not leak

Thanks for the post about water well drilling and pump work. I have been thinking about doing something like this at my house because my land allows it.

My well had the same problem....the air release valve ( don't quote me I think that was what it was called) on the tank needed to be replaced. Miller pump did wonderful fixed for around 60 or 70 I think. No problems since and its been years ago. Good luck
