I know this subject has come up often, so often with different variables
that it is difficult for me to google the answer I'm looking for.
In my new (new to me) home, the pump was short cycling (it ran after
about 1 quart of water was used, and who knows how many off and on
cycles during a shower?)
If I am correct, the air pressure in the tank should be about 2-3 pounds
less than the cut in pressure? OK so far?
Now, when and under what conditions do you measure and adjust the
pressure in the tank? With the power to the pump turned off and the
water runs until it empties the tank...*leaving the water valve open*
Or is that where someone said you could damage the bladder? Don't they
come pre charged? Wouldn't they self destruct before installation if
that was the case? I must have read something wrong there?
I don't see how it could be set with any restriction on the water side
of the tank, since if the water side is closed, the two sides will
always be equal pressure.
