I bought this tank for a traditional shallow well pump. If you are using a JET pump, you will need a pressure shut off switch. these types of pumps are very powerful. Hope this helps.
You will get a lot of pump cycles. When I moved into my house all that was there was a 20 gallon. I added a 2nd tank to cut down on pump cycles. My pump is in my house and not in my well.
I have a pump and is running very well. If you don't put a pump I don't think that you can have a pressure in the system.
The cut-on pressure for the well pump is 30 psi, so the pressure of the tank should have a pressure of 28 psi. If your well tank is on a 40/60 pressure switch, your pressure setting should be 38 psi. This pressure represents the tank empty of any water, as when there is water within the tank, the pressure will increase. Sounds like the top end of your pressure switch is set too low.
If you want to install a water pressure tank vertically then buy a vertical tank. This one is for horizontal use. Installing either one wrong puts too much weight on the bladder inlet causing it to fail.
Yes. The clip stays in.
No it doesn't Becky.
You have to turn the pressure down in the tank
