No water Pressure


Hi,
I am having an issues with the water pressure in my home, i can not get pressure to build up in my H2ow precharged water tank. I first thought that the valve in my well was caked with dirt or otherwise broken it has been replaced and the problem persists. I can here my pump pulling water through but i can not get any water pressure, i think i might be priming it wrong and have no manual to go by any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a pressure tester? What is PSI in the tank bladder?

...and you say the valve.... do you mean the check valve from the well? Is the arrow pointing in the right direction?

How old is the tank? Time to replace? Or repair?

Try pushing down on the valve stem with a finger nail, if water comes out the badder has a hole in it. There should never be water in that valve.
