Almost everytime I flush the toilet, there is a clunking sound in the pipes. Almost sounds like the well is sucking pockets of air instead of water. This "air" sound sometimes happens if other faucets are run simultaneously. There is even times when the water stops flowing from the faucet and air comes out then back quickly to water.

I assume this is not normal. I am new to wells and my landlord doesn't give a crap about my concerns. Anyone out there know what this may be? Thanks.

It sounds like your tank may be air bound. Turn off the pump and open a tap until all the water and air has stopped coming out. Turn on the pum again.

If that doesnt work I would pop the cap off the well and see where the water level is in regards to the pump.
