    One last thing. Check the voltage at the pump. Meaning at the connections at the well. Just remove the cap (outside)

    Yes it could be. But the voltage at this point is important.

    Could it be the pump being that the pressure switch doesn’t shut off, due to the fact it continues to try to provide water to meet the pressure settings?

    I will check voltage . Should I drain the tank when I adjust the pressure switch?

    You know. Try this. You say you replaced the switch, right? Check the voltage. Let’s makes sure you have 220 volts. Being, of course, your pump is 220 and it should be.

    That’s a long time. Kinda thinking you have an issue with the pump now. I would really have someone look at it.

    I mean 16-20 is something, not a lot of course. Ok you should have a spigot. Check and see how the water flows from there. Try to see how long with a short hose, how long it takes to fill a five-gallon bucket up.

    The range on the gauge is between 16-20. The pressure level on the tank is 45.

    Yeah, somehow I don’t think it’s the pump. What is the gauge reading?
