well holding tank


My water holding tank is waterlogged. The problem is that it is underground. Can I just leave it in the ground and install a new tank in the house?

I've never heard of an under ground one like that. Why is is not above ground in the pump house or even in the house?
I've was mine I replace it with a pressure tank.

It would be easiest to install a new pressure tank in the house. Depending on how the old tank is piped, it may be difficult to empty it out in which case it would be almost impossible to lift out and transplant.

For this purpose, get a pressure tank intended for well water systems, not an expansion tank for water heaters.

If the old tank has separate inlet and outlet pipes, it will behave as a cistern and can be left in place and in operation (unless there is a leak which would keep the pump running all day and all night with no one using water.)
