Try this one. Find a used but not leaking water heater. Gas or electric, doesn’t much matter. Connect water from the well to the hot water out and the line to the coach to the cold water in. Inside the heater the cold input line feeds the bottom of the tank and the hot comes off the top. Any air that comes from the well will get trapped in the top of the tank. From time to time you will need to lift the relief valve to bump the air out.

The tank will also catch some of the sediment but not much. Probably either a whole house filter or a disposable filter with garden hose ends. The disposable filters work pretty well and are low initial cost while the whole house have a higher initial expense are cheaper in the long run.

I bet the well pressure tank is full of air. All well tanks need a head of air to keep the pump from starting and stopping every time faucit is opened. on older systems there is a flapper valve that lets the standpipe to the submerged pump fill with air when the pump shuts off. when the pump starts the air in the line is forced into the well pressure tank. to maintain the proper head of air a float valve is mounted at the mid level inthe tank to let excess air out. If this float valve gets stuck, the tank will fill with air. you can check by opening a faucet by the well untell the pump starts and you should hear the float valve letting air out. if no air exits smack the valve with a mallat to see if you can dislodge the float.
If the tank has no float valve then its a diaphram type and it will not fill with air.
