13.How do I put air into the air tank on an air tank pressure system? How much air and how often?

  • Make sure both the power and water supply to the tank are turned off.
  • Open tap on discharge side to release water pressure.
  • Remove black plastic cap from the air tank to gain access to the valve stem.
  • Using a tyre gauge check the air pressure it should read 18 – 20psi or 135 – 140kpa.
  • Use a suitable air pump or compressor to inflate the tank back up to the correct pressure.
  • Do this every 2 to 3 months and you will keep your pressure system running well.
