Where does pressure tank go?
We have bought a house that had water piped in garden hoses and electricty through extension cords from a neighbor a mile away... We prefer to have our own well and electricty put in but have never attempted either and have very little money. The well was dug and capped this week and now we are gathering our supplies but I need to know where the pressure tank or "captive air tank" will go as we have no information on this yet. Does it sit in the pumphouse or in the house or in the middle somewhere?
Ladyblue_Angie - hi, my captive air tank was located inside the pumphouse at my last home. (I was a renter there and the original tank developed a nonrepairable leak. I had to buy a new tank and have the local plumber put it in for me.) Have you had a plumber come out and look it all over for you? The plumber should be able to help you get an adequate tank size so you don't buy one too large or too small for your home. I hope this helps some - regards! Jim D/Heathsville, VA
