Why do I have to put air into the air tank on an air pressure system?

Just like with your car tires compressed air will escape out of the vessel and needs to be replenished regularly. It is the air pressure that pushes the water out the tank when you first turn the tap on giving you a draw off of water before the pump cuts in. If you do not maintain the correct air pressure your pump will start to cycle on and off rapidly, which is not good for the pump or your electricity bill. At the same time lack of air pressure can cause the bladder inside to stretch to breaking point, causing more problems.
