Customer Question

Hi my water pump keeps going on and off. I already had someone tell me a solution from JUST ANSWER but it doesnt work. Now i was told that the check valve between the pump and the pressure vessle has gone bad or i have a leak in the system. Theres no leaks also said outting a check valve in the line would help. So where the line comes out of the pump to the pressure tank i installed a check valve. Now its content off and on the pump. I also notice on my pump the line that goes form the outlet of the pump to the pressure tank goes to a tee. which connects to the water line to the house on the straight line of the tee and the middle inlet of the tee goes to the pressure tank. If i had a email address i would show you what i have.
