Check valve in between well and pressure tank?
I’ve lived in my home for about 4-5 years and have always wondered if the random cycling of my well pump could be do to me not having a check valve between the pump tank and the well/pump.
The house was pre-existing, but I really question the ability of the pump to hold the pressure in, let alone to not have any small leaks in the piping all the way up from the well in the ground.
Do these pumps have check valves built in normally? I would think if I were letting that amount of water into my home for that amount of time I would have noticed a wet spot on a wall, ceiling, or floor.
