After installing all new parts, including a pressure tank, check valve, gage, pressure switch and related pipe, my old problem with a loss of pressure became more pronounced. When taking a shower, there is a momentary loss of pressure lasting 2-4 seconds (both hot and cold) that may or may not last long enough for the shower diverter valve to drop open.
I've had this problem for a while now and it is/was most noticable at the small electric pressure washer that is served by the garage sill ****. Now, with the new parts, the shower issue is just plain annoying.
I'm thinking check valve in the well, allowing the head of water in the pipe to drain back.
Any thoughts, anyone?
