      I have a well and pressure tank, when my pump fills my pressure tank I have a loss of water or pressure within 90 seconds and the pump runs again. I have closed the valves on the water heater and the valve at the pressure tank. I still have the same 90 seconds or so cycle. Any suggestions?

      Sounds like the bladder in your tank is shot. Time for a new tank. Check out Wel Trol, they’re supposed to be the best.

      For a temporary fix, drain the tank completely than let it fill back up. It should help until you get the new tank.

      Depress the air valve stem. If water comes out, you have a defective tank. Otherwise you shuld be able to repressurize it. In any case pressurizing it with water in the system will get you by until a new tank can be installed.
