      My house has a well, not sure how deep, and we are having pretty low water pressure throughout the whole house. If you turn on the water, it runs for a minute or so, and when the well pump kicks on the water pressure gets much better. Do we need a new pressure tank or is there something else I should look at?
      Thanks!

      Check the air pressure in the pressure tank and set it to 1-2 psi less than the cut-in pressure switch setting. You check it with no water in the tank. Once you have it set correctly, then you can go from there.

      You can find more information on this process by searching other posts here or in newsgroups.
