My well pump seems to cycle on and then off any time we use water.
When not in use it is fine.
I noticed it when using my tap inside, the water flow will pulsate. So
when someone was taking a shower I went to the well house and noticed
the pump cycling as I described. Any ideas?
I suspect either a waterlogged tank or a malfunctioning pressure
If it is a waterlogged tank does this mean that the bladder has busted
or do I just need to add air to the tank?
Cut power to the well pump. Turn on the water. Does pressure stay up for any
length of time or immediately drop? If it stays up the bladder is OK and the
pressure switch is suspect. If it plummets then the tank is water logged.
