My water pressure is throwing me fits. One time it will be fine and the next, it will be blowing air and very little water.

The pressure tank itself is buried in the ground by the well. I plan on digging it up and putting a new pressure tank in the house. All of my pipes inside will be easy to get to and I have plenty of room. My question is, is there any tips or short cuts out there for doing this. Also I thought about leaving it outside but pouring a concrete box for it to set in under the frost line.

Maybe it can be fixed as is, I don't know. If I turn the cold water faucet on in the house eventually pressure will come back up.

The house was built in the late 70's so I would imagine it's the original. We have 3 sinks, 2 toilets and 2 baths. Would an 86 gallon tank be a good choice? I've heard of people having to add air to their tanks, could this be my problem also. Like I say, it's buried so I haven't seen it yet.
