At what pressure should the tank be set, and how do I adjust it?

Your pressure tank should be the same as your pump's cut on setting. For example: 30/50 setting would have a pump cut on of 28 psi, 40/60 cut on is 38 psi, and 50/70 cut on is 48 psi. To adjust a tank’s air pressure, first shut off electric power to the pump. Open a faucet near the tank and drain completely. Then follow the manufacturer’s instructions for adjusting the pressure. However, we suggest you contact a licensed well contractor to make any repairs on your well. To locate a licensed well contractor in your area our interactive map may help.
