Troubleshooting Q04 Little water is coming out of the faucet. The tank is heavy and appears full of water, but the stream turns very weak after a few seconds. What is wrong?

If there is no change in the supply water pressure, the problem is very likely from the tank. It could be due to low tank pressure or a broken bladder. Perform the following steps first:
- Shut off the main water supply.
- Put a bucket under the tank and remove tank by disconnecting the ball valve.
- Dump the water from the tank by turning it upside down (through the top stem). You may add air from the front valve to help empty the water.
- Use a gauge at the front air valve to check tank pressure. It should be within 7-10 PSI. If too low, you can use a bicycle pump to add more pressure to the tank.
- Re-connect tank to the system and turn on the water supply.
