Common Pressure Tank Issues
A pressure tank is a critical part of most well water systems. While there are a few different types, the most common are by far bladder tanks. These can be made of fiberglass or steel with a rubber bladder inside. One side of the rubber bladder holds a pressurized air charge while the other side holds well water. A bad pressure tank can lead to serious problems.

Water Pressure Issues
Waterlogged pressure tanks can also lead to low and fluctuating water pressure. “Drawdown” is when the well pump is off and the pressure tank is providing water pressure. When the tank is waterlogged or the air charge is low, the drawdown phase will be much shorter than it should be, causing fluctuating water pressure or just low sluggish pressure.
