What a day!
We woke up to very low water pressure then absolutely no water.
Not good. Hubby just left out so it’s just me and the three little ones. (OK, Savannah you are not little but you will always be one of my little ones) 😉 Anyhow after a call to the hubs I am outside moving the back steps and taking the skirting off the trailer. (Getting so close to finally building our dream house) but in the meantime this is home. After taking the switch off the pressure tank and putting another switch on I check the pressure tank and there is no pressure. So off I trek to the barn to pull the air compresser up to the house. After adding some air pressure to the tank. I flip the main power back on and “Woo Hoo” we have water.  A little bit later I tell Savannah to jump in the shower real quick just in case we have any more issues. After several minutes she is back. After she lathered up her hair we have no water again. 🙁 arrggh. So out I go again. Oh yeah, one more important fact…it’s over 100 degrees here again today. So anyhow we try this again. The tank has lost pressure down to 15psi so I added some more air but no luck this time. Still no water and the switch just keeps clicking on and off. I flipped the 20 switch at the breaker so at least that won’t keep running. I have a call in to the repair guy. Do any of you know anything about this type of thing? Help….
