As for the water tank hole, it should be easy. Two questions first:

1. Is the tank polypropylene?
2. Is the hole still perfectly round?

If the answers are yes, find a Tractor Supply Company (TSC) store and go to there tank and sprayer aisle. You will find a wealth of polypropylene fixtures there. You probably can find a plug designed for just such an application. If you don't have a TSC nearby, try them online.

Been there Done that

Except I truly don't put my finger in holes I drill that don't go where I know. I too think pressure switch. I pulled my belt driven pump. Put in new shur-flo and have much better pressure with no pressure switch.
Hole in tank I fixz with epoxy where applicable until I can replace. I found my drain valve for water tank under the arm of couch, pulled arms up, (straight up), and found valve and air breaker line to water tank. Drainage is a relatively slow process as it is a 1/2 " line and drains about 25 gallons (My estimate from size of tank)

You can always put a 1/2" garden hose through the filler neck, and siphon the water out from two places at the same time. If you get the water pump fuse problem licked, you can turn on a faucet, and have three drain sources. Come to think of it, you can turn on a faucet, turn on the water pump, and see if the fuse blows. If not, it would tell you for sure the high pressure switch is bad.

Well, we got home from work & took a look at the water pump first. My husband thinks that since our battery is low & the fuse is so small (6.25 amp) that we had to boost it up to a 10 amp. We tried that & it didn't blow. Need to get a new battery & see if I can switch the fuse back to the original & not blow it. I'm afraid of blowing everything up with a higher fuse, but he says not to worry?! Anyhow, I'm having trouble finding the hole I put in the water tank. It is only the size of a tip of a screw. I drilled larger holes in all the the screw holes I put it (about 6 of them) & we then blew air into the tank to try to find the hiss. We didn't succeed. We're waiting for our daughter the nurse to get home so we can use her stethescope. Any better ideas?
I'm glad to hear it can be fixed once we find it. We have a tractor supply nearby, so that shouldn't be a problem. Hubby is a farmer & has never punctured any of his own tanks!

Thanks for your help. I'll look for the water valve in the couch!?
