I have a private well. I have no idea when pump was put in. Only lived in the house for about 6 years. As of recently I’ve been running out of water when only doing laundry. Well pump was also short cycling and cycling periodically when no water was being ran. Plumber came and told me toilet was leaking, fixed it and problem still persisted.
Water pressure by the tank reading 30 psi. Tank was reading 28 psi. I turned off water to the house and emptied tank. Psi on the tank was reading 11. Pressure switch is a 30/50. I think the tank is about 25 years old. Shook the tank and don’t hear any water moving around inside. No water coming out of shrader valve at the top of the tank. Pressure tank is an amtrol champion serial #cm3008
Yesterday, I found a leak underneath my kitchen sink. Replaced the leaking valve, emptied tank and filled it up to 28 psi where it should be. When system is pressurized and on the tank is reading 45 psi. Pump is no longer short cycling. It cycled for a little over a minute. Did another load of laundry and ran out of water again.
I have no idea what the problem is.
