Deep well pressure tank
If the tank does not leak air (letting water fill it up) and water can freely enter and leave via the pipe at the bottom then it should perform okay.
A damaged bladder or an accumulation of rust and sediment can block the pipe at the bottom. A tank with no bladder will work but will always fill with water gradually due to absorption of air into the water. It would have to have additional air added or be emptied of water every so often (may go a month before it fills with water by itself)
When the pressure peters out has the pump stopped?
You might want to install a pressure gauge near the pressure tank so you can monitor the pressure anytime.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
