Hello and thank you in advance for any help you can give!

I live in a house that has a bladder tank (not sure of the size, but the on/off range is 30-50), smart tee, and a Honeywell-Braukmann F76 water filter. For a long time now, we have had to flush the filter about once or twice a day in order to maintain water pressure in the house.

We thought that the filter was our problem (especially silt-y water or something), but what we have now figured out is that we were using the filter flush to lower the house pressure enough for the bladder tank to turn on. We do not own the house and have had to figure this stuff out on our own (the owner is an 82 year old grandmother, so not much help).

We've checked the pressure gauges at the tank and at the filter when the actual water pressure was high and low. The readings are always the same.

This leads us to believe that something in either the tank or the smart tee is malfunctioning in some way. Lately the pressure has decreased even more rapidly than normal.

I am not really familiar with this equipment, so any insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I've tried to give as much information as I could, but if more is necessary, I will provide it.

Thanks again!
