I need to reroute the oulet water pipe on the pressurized well water
tank. Can I just trun off the power and remove the outlet pipe without
loosing all pressure? If I loose the air/water, how much air do I put
back in the tank?
Only if you have a gate at the outlet of the tank and shut it off before
unscrewing any pipes......
If its a bladder type tank, you shouldnt lose any air regardless, unless you
open up the air valve on top the tank--but generally, a bladder tank is
charged to 3~5 psi lower than the cut-in pressure setting for the pump.
If its an older ( non bladder type with air volume controls ) tank, your
best bet is to just go ahead and drain it, as it will automatically
re-adjust to the proper air volume given time, so long as everything there
is working properly.
