I’m hoping someone could help us. We noticed an issue with our water pressure, it seems to fluctuate every 20 seconds or so. We are still able to use our water but it’s become a lot more noticeable. I did a lot of research to try and understand what’s going on and what to test but I would love some confirmation before we order a new water pressure tank.
Some info about our system: Wellxtrol WX203, 32 gallons I believe the cut in/cut out should be 40/60 as the pressure switch cuts off at 60, however it doesn’t turn on until 33. I know it should turn on at 38.
The tank itself is laying on its side in the crawl space. Ive read this can cause premature rupture of the bladder.
There is no info anywhere about the well pump (on the cap or by the circuit breaker) so we followed a video to measure. We got 9.8 gpm.
When we measured our drawdown, we only got .75 gallons. We were going to drain the tank and check the air pressure to test for a ruptured bladder but with such a small drawdown, we are scared to mess with anything too much.
I have tried to learn as much as I can about this so I pray I’m making some sort of sense. Thank you so much for any help you may be able to offer us.
