if your water tank is water logged the pump will kick on almost immediatly when the water tap is opened, and will kick off shortly after it is closed. Water cannot be compressed. The air inside the tank allows the pump to "catch up" and shut off while the water is in use, and allows for a steady flow of water at similar pressures.

Symptoms of bad water pumps?

your car will over heat and it will drain out the antifreeze (in your radiator). The water pump will drain fluid from the small hole in the water pump (hard to see) but if u look under and near the water pump you would see fluid. The water pump is normally found in the center of the serpentine belt on one of the pullies. Normally the cars serpentine belt will squeak from the antifreeze on the belt. if you are replacing the water pump you would need a water pump...a gasket for water pump and a new serpentine belt (dont buy a Napa belt)

How do you drain water logged well pump for house?

OK,I assume that your pump needs to be removed from the well and the pump and water line is full of water and heavy.I had the same problem and sorry to say there is no easy way.What you need to do is get a good grip on the water line leading into the well.You may have a nylon rope attached to the pump itself,dont pull on this it may break.Get a few of your stronger friends to pull up on the water line,pull together it will be heavy,until the pump is above the water level in the well.This will allow the water in the pump and the water line to drain out.Then it should come out with little effort.
