My well water pumps start up with a "bang" about 8 out of 10 times.
Before I go replacing things willy-nilly I thought I would ask
The baldder in my holding tank in not leaking, it hold it's pressure
of about 38LB.
My pressure settings is 41 on/low to 59 off/high
Well pump is only 2 yesr old.
Any thoughts anybody?
Thank you in advance.

The pump is submersible and the bang happends right when it starts. I
can't realy tell where it's comming from. I put my ear on the tank
and my hand on the check valve and still the whole thing just bangs.
No pipes touching a wall. I will replace the check valve, that makes
the most sense.
I replaced the check valve and the bang is still there. It is a bit
quiter as the pipe may have been hitting the wall making the sound
louder. The bang sound is not killing me but does anyone think it is
bad for my pump to keep banging like that?
