I am consistently seeing/feeling a pressure drop just before the pump kicks in to refill the Pressure tank. I am on a well with a diaphragm pressure tank.
I have drained the system and verified the air pressure 40psi. The cut in pressure is 42psi and the cut out pressure is about 72psi. When I open the faucet the pressure goes down smoothly until it reaches about 52 psi, then there is a fast dip down to 42 then immediately returns to 52+psi as the pump activates.
I have video'd this and can see the gauge and the "plate" on the pressure switch dip at the same time so it isn't a bad gauge...I can also feel this dip while in the shower.
Everything else seems to be working fine. Just want to make sure that this isn't killing my pump or pressure tank.
If there is a fix, I am all ears.
