Best Answer

My '85 builds up pressure especially when the fuel drops below a 1/4 of a tank, it's always done that so I take it as normal.

How much to replace a well water holding tank?

You need to give MORE specific information. There are a number of types of tanks. The primary holding tank in a normal domestic well system is a 'bladder pressure tank.' These usually have a grey pressure switch at the input pipe. - They can be piped in with different methods. However, I have replaced 3 this week in 3 hours, 3.5 hours and 5 hours. The longest one had copper piping and took a lot of disconnecting and reconnecting in sequence. Most (as in the 3 hour one ) have flexible high pressure pipe and are easier to work with. Some tanks are not pressure tanks, but purely 'Holding' tanks usually used in connection with a low producing well. Thes have a pump used to supply the pressure tank. YOU must define whether you are referring to a pressure tank, or just a holding tank. The actual pressure tanks range in cost according to size. A 33 gallon tank is normal in a house and cost around $350 for the tank. They go up to a 120 gallon tank for large houses, which are around $850 each.

Your badder tank kicks on at 25 lbs what should be the air pressure in the tank?

The pressure in your tank should be checked with water drained from the tank, with the water drained the air pressure in the tank should be set 2psi lower than your kick in pressure. So for a kick in pressure of 25psi the tank air pressure should be set at 23psi.Ans 2 - Water should NOT be totally drained from the tank or you may get a false reading ! - Leave 2-3 gallons in the tank. Most systems have the pressure switch set at 30 Psi, so tank residual pressure should be 28psi. - Lower than this gives really dismal pressure in the shower, especially if it's on second floor.
