pump pressure

I have a gould jet pump it has been losing presure. I checked and there are no leaks in the house. It takes about 20- 25 mins. for the pressure to drop before the pump kicks back on. Could this be a leaky line or bad foot valve?

Yes, it could be either one. If there is a valve between the pressure tank and house, close it and let the pump sit. If the pressure still drops, you'll know the problem is on the pump/well end.

I did isolate the house from the tank and pump and the pressure still dropped so that is what it must be. Thanks for the reply. Tom
