I found a buildup of minerals in the well pump pressure switch diaphragm affecting both the cut on and cut off pressures. It was a 30-50 PSI factory set switch and was running from 20-75psi due the the buildup! I took the pressure switch apart and thoroughly cleaned the diaphragm parts, after cleaning it was running in the 20 psi range but was 50-70 psi. I adjusted the pressure settings to 30-60 as I am okay with the pressure drop and allows the pump to cycle less as opposed to the 40-60 I would normally set for a 2 story house….
