I have a well and pressure tank (Well-X-Trol WX-250). Upon troubleshooting low water pressure in our home, I discovered that our pressure tank is never filling and our well pump is running constantly.
The pressure gauge at the front of the WX-250 normally shows a constant 27 PSI. This drops to 0 when the power is turned off to the pump, and drops to 10-15 when a faucet is turned on inside the house.
Initially the air pressure inside the WX-250 was around 10 PSI. I increased this to the recommended 38 PSI but it seems to not have had an impact.
I'm sure water isn't going into the pressure tank. When I turn off the power to the pump and open the valve from the tank, no water comes out.
Is my problem with the well pump or with the pressure tank? Could I have a blockage in the pipe that connects to the pressure tank?
