JA: Is there anything else the Plumber should be aware of?

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

You're holding tank always should only have mostly air in it. The air in the tank helps maintain a pressure cushion so the pump doesn't short cycle. If you have a submersible pump (in the well) then the air is likely coming from the water in the line between the tank and the pump draining back into the well because the check valve in the pump has failed.
