There is no air in groundwater. If there is air in your well water lines then either your pump or foot valve is at static water level and sometimes sucks air, - or there is a small leak in the pipe which will both admit air and leak water, depending on pressure. If you are using a Jet-pump at a well shed, air leaks are quite common. Most people do not know how to properly attach water pipes to fittings. It is also possible that the down pipe into the well has vertical cracks. This too is common certain kinds of pipe.

-Air in pipes is due to faulty connections or pump entry being at water level ( instead of deeper) and sucking air.

How does air get in well water pipes?

this is most common down towards the bottom of the well. the pipe well casing could have even just a pin hole from corrosion to small for water to get through but just enough for air to get in. this would when the water flows it would cause a vacuum to come into the pipe allowing air into it. The result of this would give you a milky color water. To test if it is air just fill a glass or vial or any container really and put water in it and let it sit. if the milky color doesn't disappear then it is not air. To fix you would most likely have to replace the well casing or the pipes attached to the pump.

What could cause air to get into your water lines in your well water system?

Air in water linesIt's possible that your jet pump could be sucking air from your holding tank. There is usually a float switch from your well to the holding tank depending on the system.

It could also be the case if your jet pump is oversized. It could be a serious problem depending on how much air is being sucked through the pump.

Why does your well pressure tank make a whistle sound when the water is running?

There is an air fitting on the tank, where you can check the pressure on the one side of the diaphragm. Hold you hand over it and see if the air is leaking out here. If air is leaking out here, you need to get a tire valve tool and tighten the pin. If the diaphragm was bad, the tank would completely fill with water and this should not cause that sound. There is a pressure switch, and the plumbing lines, but if there where to whistle, you would see water leaking out.

When replacing brake lines, wheel cylinders or calipers air will get into the lines because they were taken apart.

Also a bad seal on a caliper piston and a brake wheel cylinder will allow air into the lines.
