Every time hot water is called for - showering, shaving, doing laundry, dishwashing, etc., huge, powerful air sputters occur. Eventually the air blasts quit but not altogether. Even as the hot water runs, occasional air bursts can be heard and felt. Our home is three years old. Since moving in, the problem has remained. Neither city nor county utilities supply our water. A single deep well combined with a large holding tank provides the water for all homes in our small mountain community. A pressure reducer is installed on our supply line. I'm baffeled. And frustrated. What is the problem, and what can I do?

You probably need to install an air water separator on your water line. Someplace along the system, it is picking up water from the well and sucking it into the water supplied to every home. An air water separator has a filter in it that lets the air pass out of the system, but not the water. The filter is so small, the water molecule will not go out, but the air can. These need to be installed in the right location, so all of the wate must rise up to an air chamber on the top side of the pipe, where the separator is installed. They are pretty effective.

By the way, install it on the top of the outlet for the water heater.

Good Luck
