Identified a failed well pressure tank

I was notified of an increase in day to day usage by Sense. I called up the offending device and saw it was my well pump. Went to the basement, and sure enough, it was cycling on for 2 minutes, off for 30 seconds, over and over. The high cycle rate is indicative of a failed pressure tank bladder. A quick test showed that to be the case, so off to the local hardware store for a new tank. Installed and working. Because of Sense, I was able to quickly catch a problem that could have resulted in a well pump burnout, which tends to get expensive to replace. Thanks Sense!!

My day-to-day notification setup in Sense pointed out the problem within 24 hours, and the app showed it to be my well pump running nearly constantly.
