no pressure

I have a well water system. The pump supplies water but will not build pressur. I am going to replace the pressure swith, any other ideas. The system has one of the bladder type tanks.
Thanks Bob

No pressure

I'm not sure of the details of this problem, but from your post this is what I have. the tank should have an air valve on it, it looks like the valve on your tires, take a pressure gage and see what the pressure is in the tank; if its zero it might be bad. Try to pump it up to the pressure that you have set on your well i.e. if you have your well set at 45 lbs the tank should be 45 lbs. If it won't hold pressure the tank is bad. Luck.
