    Looking to replace our tank. I assume the bladder is toast in this one. Suggestions on models? What to stay away from?

    Did you check to see if it toast? Just add air first, two PSI below cut in. Just make sure the pressure in your house is sitting at zero.

    Good to know.


    Though one might assume that if a system that was working properly suddenly isn't that there may be an underlying issue...

    we actually replaced the tank once before, but with a used one we had laying around here at work. Got about 3 years out of it before it started acting up.

    I did add air to it. Helps for a bit until it bleeds off.
