      I’m on a well. Lately I’ve noticed that when I run the water the water pressure starts out fine, has a momentary decrease/loss, and then returns to normal. To me it seems that the water pressure drops off momentarily when the pump turns on. This doesn’t seem normal to me.

      I’m looking for any input/ideas to the cause(s) of the momentary pressure loss.

      Thanks!!

      Sounds like this is sucking air on start up..

      Possible leak on the SUCTION side but dont give out too much information as it is fun to keep guessing.

      Sort of like shooting a semi Auto 7.62 39 in the dark upon hearing sounds in the bush
