Our pump is kicking on and off
« on: August 01, 2017, 10:43:38 AM »
Hi there,
Iím experiencing a big problem. Our pump is kicking on and off. Tried replacing the pressure switch and didnít work. This is happening for the first time in 7 years. What might be the reason? Do I need to get the assistance from the professional plumbers to fix the issue?
My friend told that it can be the problem of the bladder tank. The debris present in the bladder tank can cause the issue. Is it true?
I found some instructions online to pressurize the tank
Turn off the pump
Drain the pressure tank
Check amount of the air present in the tank
Adjust the pressure with a compressor
Refill the tank
Can I able to fix the issue with these instructions? Any suggestions would be a great help.
