Most of the water treatment happens here. There are no shortcuts.
This tank is plumbed downstream of the well or source water and upstream of the carbon filter. Chlorine is injected at the inlet where it mixes with the water prior to entering the tank. The inlet is located at the bottom of the tank. The chlorine reacts with the water. The water exits the tank through the top. From there the water goes the carbon filter for dechlorination and particle removal.
Chlorine does three things:
1-it kills bacteria. Chlorine takes 15 minutes to kill bacteria. This tank is sized at 120 gallons. At 8 gallons per minute flow rate, you will get 15 minutes of retention time.
2-it oxidizes iron. The iron will turn to rust and settle to the bottom of the tank.
3-it oxidizes sulfur. The hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas in the water is the source of the rotten egg odor in the water. The oxidized sulfur becomes a solid and it settles to the bottom of the tank.
There is a drain at the bottom of the tank. Open it periodically to flush the settled solids out. Solids do not settle perfectly. Often they will stick to the side of the tank. The most effective way to flush them out is to empty the tank. Allow air to enter the tank from the spigot near the top as you drain it. Open the inlet and allow water to flow in while the drain is still open. This will allow the tank to be cleaned more thoroughly. Run the water until it appears clear. Allow air to escape out the spigot near the top when refilling the tank.

A pressure tank stores energy in the form of compressed air. The well pump puts water into the pressure tank. The air that is stored in the pressure tanks bladder becomes compressed. When water is used, such as opening a faucet in the house, the compressed air forces the water out of the tank. The well pumps primary job is to fill this tank. The pressure tanks job is to supply your home with water. The tank must be properly sized and properly maintained so that the well pump does not start too frequently.
Maintenance: At least every three months check the air pressure in the tank. Add air according the the manufacturer’s instructions.
Method: Turn off well pump. Open a spigot to relieve water pressure to zero psi. Use a pressure gauge, such as the type used to check tire pressure, to read air pressure at the schrader valve on top of the tank. The pressure reading should be 4 psi below pump cut on pressure. For example, if the well pump turns on at 30 psi, the pressure tank should have 26 psi of air in the tank. If the pressure is lower than required, add air with an air compressor.
These are general instructions. Consult your tank's instructions for maintenance details. Failure to maintain air pressure may result in damage to the bladder and will surely result in short-cycling of the pump. Short cycling is a condition in which the well pump starts too frequently. Short cycling will result in higher energy consumption and a shortened life expectancy of the pump and control devices.
