    Re: Air getting into water system

    You might trying installing a water hammer at a higher location than the pump. This will allow air out of the lines before entering the house. Normally these are used at water heaters, or inlets just before water heaters.

        it is a submersible, I updated it further on, but all good suggestions, I will put a gauge at the top of the well, which is 30' from the pressure tank in the house, as I suspect I am losing pressure somewhere.

        I can also pull the pump and such to check all those fittings. Quite possible something got cracked when they changed the pump. Either way it is a lot of work and certainly a pain. And if I have to change all the pipe from the well to the house, I have to dodge 3-4 giant oak trees too, should be fun

        thanks everyone

          I don't know if anyone asked this...
          The air in your lines...does it have air only right after you open a fixture, or consistently as you run water?
