      I have a jet pump system with a Myers pump and a fairley new tank with a diaphram. Also the pressure switch was purchased at the same time as the tank.
      The problem is that after about 15 minutes, the pressure drops off to nothing.The pump comes on shortly after turning on the water.
      What could be the problem. What is the best way to check the switch’s settings and what should they be? Thanks for any and all advice.
