I'll take a look around Antigua and see if I can find a replacement.

Dan, that tank is mounted behind the generator and is the expansion tank for the water heater.
I bought that tank at an agriculture water pump shop in Australia. It was replaced in about 2008 and I am sure needs replacing. I bought one twice the size as the original. You should be able to find one anywhere that water-well pumps are sold.
Here is the photo of the tank.
Hello, my fresh water pressure accumulator tank is loosing pressure and then the pump has to cycle frequently when using water.
I have added air to the tank a number of times now and it escapes over a few days. I also removed the air fill valve and inspected and put silicone on the rubber seal and valve.
Does anyone else have troubleshooting experience? Or replacement?
I am currently in Antigua.
Photo of tank attached.
Thanks and regards, Daniel Carlson on sv BeBe, SM#387
