pressure in bladder tank should be 2 psi less than cut in pressure of switch with pump off and tank drained by opening faucet . this is so there will be water left in tank when pump starts. changing this may cause bladder to rupture or water to stop flowing before pump starts. it will have no effect on the pumping rate. decreased pumping rate may be caused by worn pump a hole in the drop pipe, well pumping dry ect.

Hello Leroy,

Read my post again! Bladder pressure WAS 28# a added pressure to bring it to 38#. Pump settings are 40# on 60# off.
I need to get the pump out and see what the bottom looks like. Next week hope to do just that,

Did you shut off the pump and let the water depressurize before you checked the bladder, like they are trying to ask if you did?

Hello T in TN, I pulled the disconnect, drain all the water out, checked the air pressure added 10 lb.
It did run for a couple of minutes, but with one flush it came on again with newer type toilet. Not much water don't you think?

Yes I agree. How big is that tank? and are you sure that it is not partially waterlogged?

Hello showcrop,

I don't know the size, but it is the smallest thing you can by. Next size was $75. That is how much the builder saved on that system times 30 houses!. It has been short cycling with the sprinkler on. I'm going to check the anti blow back valve. If it was leaking, it could be one of the problems.
I'm still thinking the well is not producing the proper volume. This coming week we will know,

Well, that is it! Get a tank with some capacity and it will be able to flush the toilet many times. You can't expect a tank that will push one gallon to flush your tank more than once. I don't know the volumes but you should have one about four feet high.

The pump runs too long now, just to fill the little tank. Bigger tank would take longer to fill at this rate. It is a small tank, just another part of the poorly designed system,
