new install - sand point with check valve out of the floor to the pump to the tank. Before it was 1-2 psi barely water coming out. Put in new sand point and check valve - reached 25 psi - good flow out of fixtures - not reaching cut - out level. When I manually shut off pump the pressure goes to 0 psi - when I turn it on it quickly goes to 25psi. It has a valve after the tank when I close the valve it doesn't build pressure - it stays at 25psi.
water table is 12'. Total is around 22". If I have a check valve why would the pressure drop?
No check between the outlet pump and the tank. Only on suction side. Bladder 20 gallon tank. Around 28 psi when running same when off manually.
Hello again,Look this article over for background information, The try reducing the air pressure in your bladder tank to 25 psig and tell me how that goes.
