air in pipes

I have a shallow well with a craftsman pump on it connected to a captive air tank. The pump cycles on and off, the pressure switch is a 20/40. The problem I am having is air spitting from my faucets and i can hear it doing the same as the toilet refills. I have an outside faucet just outside the pump house and it does the same thing, only not as bad. There are no leaks between the pump and mobile home, the pressure side of the pump. I have checked the pipes between the well head and the inlet side of the pump and found no leaks. I am in SC and we have plenty of water here, none of my neihbors have any water problems so I would think that a gaseous well is out of the question. Any thing you might suggest would be appreciated. Thanks, Bob

you might try depleting the well intentially to see how much reserve capacity it has.
if it empties fast your well has a problem/
is the pressure tank at the well? its likely bad

re: connected to a captive air tank
It's obvious that your captive air tank is rebelling against the years of oppression that you have subjected it to.
Set it free. If it comes back, it's yours, if it doesn't, you never really had it anyway.
