Well To Tank Connection


In the basement I have a tank for the well system. The 3way brass fitting in front of tank uses copper to connect to tank and copper connect to the house water line. The connection to the flex black line coming from the pump (through foundation) uses a short PVC between pump line before screwing onto the brass fitting.

A recent repair job now has the PVC to brass fitting dripping very slightly. Should I just replace the small PVC with copper between brass fitting and the plastic flex line from the well.

I think you're describing the pressure switch? At ant rate, replace the PVC with PEX, copper or more poly (flex black line) if it's a short run

Thanks. That is exactly what i did. Remove the 18" inches between the poly and the fitting and went 100% copper.
