      Every time i use water my well clicks on and the pressure drops instantly from 45 lbs. to 20 lbs, Therefore my pump clicks on and off about six times when i flush my toilet.Is it possible that my tank is water logged? I don’t have a air chuck at the top of my pressure tank. Does this mean i have to drain it?

      Mike, your expansion tank has a bladder inside that is charged with air. You’ll need to drain the water from the tank, check the air charge on the bladder( it will have an air stem on it), fill the air press. to the manufacture suggested pressure according to your system pressure(if you are unable to pressurize the bladder then it is damaged and you’ll need to replace the tank).
