Hello, I know nothing about plumbing so bare with me. Ever since I moved into my cabin I have had air trapped in my water lines. No matter how many times I purge the lines within a couple hours the air is back, both hot and cold. Any idea what’s causing so much air to be building up? Any help is appreciated ty
As a general rule I prefer not to be bare around others. In regards to your plumbing issue, are you on a well or city water?
I’ve got a well, it’s about 30 yards from where it comes into the house
You can watch your pressure guage on your well tank and see if it's going down when all water is off. If it does, you probably have a leak in your supply line from the well to the house. Which would also cause your well pump to cycle a lot.
