I have a well to supply my house with water. Lately it has been running quite a bit, for a short time and turning off, then turning back on. (when water is being used)

If you are taking a shower, the water almost pulsates, from strong stream to weak stream. I cleaned the inline filter, thought that may have been the problem, but that didn't change it.

The pump turns off at 50 psi, and turns back on at 35 psi. When using water, this PSI drops pretty quick, almost like the tank is not filling completely up. There is an air chuck like on a bicycle, do I need to add air to the tank? I remember my grandfather doing that to their pump at times, but I don't remember why.

Thanks a bunch
