Hello everyone-

I have a 2" 3 year old well pipe that was never used. I have finally hooked up a 1hp above ground pump to it and it pumps water great. I have a 30 gallon bladder tank and a water softner hooked up to it as well.

Question: Pump came set at 30-50 psi in and out so I filled the bladder tank to 30. For some reason the bladder tank does not fill up more than the very bottom maybe several inches high and my pump will not turn off. The pressure gauge seem unable to reach 50. Does anyone have any ideas why the tank will not fill and the pump will not shut off.
