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.
