Re: Pressure Tank


I'm not familiar with the term " tank won't engage ".

If the tank pressure is approximately 2# below switch cut in pressure and the draw down volume is approximately what the manufacture for that tank rates it, the tank is doing its job.

Are you talking about the pressure switch that energizes the pump or are you saying that no water is even coming up?
