    Agreed, short cycling is not good at all.
    But as for extended run time...I'd take more (or longer per cycle) rather than less...as in oversize pressure tank, not as in broken water line.

    STROKE OF LUCK? (possibly)

    The pump protector bushpilot mentioned arrived today (slightly different model) Installing it this weekend.

    Late this summer I met a neighbor a mile or so down the road and his wife. He mentioned he was on a commercial job at the university here that WWW's company was there too and dipchit was gumming it up pretty bad and delaying all the other contractors of every trade, of course I mentioned to WWW, one thing to work with a %*% *&^$, but another to allow him to give the company a bad name...... So WWWW took the quad down there a few weeks later and introduced himself-neighbor said he needs a roof. Fast forward to now, WWW went by today to apologize that they are totally booked and looking at next spring when it warms up enough for shingles. The neighbor in return offers a barter a deal on our water problems!!!!!!

    I can't wait to see how this works out, commercial pump and pressure tank, oh ya, thats what I want, like a set up we owned/used for 21 years. :banana:
