I would start by answering the questions in the post you just quoted...
I'd suspect the pressure switch but there could be something else wrong possibly with the pressure tank or something else entirely.
A house I rented once started making some horrible plumbing sounds (on the 2nd day of the lease no less) that were so loud you could hear them 3 doors down with all the doors and windows closed... The solution was a pressure regulator, but that isn't appropriate for a well system.
In addition to the questions before, do this (2 people required):
-observe the pressure when everything is closed and the well isn't running
-turn a faucet on full blast, time how long it takes before the pump kicks on and at what pressure
-continue running water for 3-5 minuets
-turn the faucet off, note how long the pump runs and what pressure it stops at
You could always try turning off the water heater and well, draining both, refilling, then removing aerators and flushing out debris from the faucets -- but I don't have high expectations this would help.
It's coming from an Amtrol Boilermate hot water tank, no doubt.
Sounds like the whizzing sound of a workshop wooden planer. Starts loud, diminishes in volume over 7 seconds or so and repeats after a short pause. Doesn't appear related to water demand.
Tried that for awhile. At first I thought it was coming from the basement by the pump controls, but when looking into it realized it was from the room above the garage where the boiler is.... specifically the lower part of the boiler mate tank. The heater now remains set to a high temperature so warm water will reach some horses in a remote barn.
It sounds something like cross between a plucking of guitar strings or a workshop planer sound that starts loud and slowly resonates to silence, and repeats. Doesn't matter if water is being drawn. It's also at a high altitude. The local plumber, more of a jack of all trades, didn't have a clue.
Patched the edge of a step, but it sticks out like a sore thumb because of the mismatch in the finish.
How can I possibly blend the next repair better with the original which appears to have black pebbles on the surface?
(Photos are the same, can't seem to delete one or the other, and the dark swipe that goes across the repair is just dirt. The repair is larger than it appears, I was able to glue two large chunks in place and filled a small area with fast setting cement)
