How Does A Pressure Tank Work?

If you have a private well, you have a pressure tank. Water gets pumped from the well into the pressure tank which compresses the air in the tank to a predetermined PSI (pounds per square inch). This PSI is usually about 50. When someone in the house turns on a faucet, the pressure in the tank forces water through the pipes until the air pressure in the tank drops to around 20 PSI. This triggers the pump and the whole process starts all over again!

Types of Pressure Tanks

There are three different types of pressure tanks available for your home

  • Air-Over-Water
  • Diaphragm
  • Bladder

Air-Over-Water pressure tanks are not as popular and are usually found in older homes. They consist of one chamber containing water and pressurized air with nothing separating them. These pressure tanks are prone to malfunction and water-logging. Diaphragm and Bladder pressure tanks are similar in that they consist of two different chambers; one containing air, and one containing water. In a diaphragm pressure tank, a rubber diaphragm is attached to the sides of the tank to separate the two. In a bladder pressure tank, a balloon filled with water expands and contracts to trigger the pump.
