There may be too much water and not enough air in the tank.

Try this. Turn off the well pump, empty all the water from the tank with the air valve open, close the air valve, and turn the pump back on.


The good conscientious technician or serviceperson will carry extra oils and lubricants in case the new pump did not come with oil or the oil was accidentally spilled, so the service call can be completed without an extra visit.
