Correct cut in/out pressure for jet pump?

What is the correct pressure for cut in/out on a 1/2 hp shallow well GE jet pump? My water level is about 15 feet below ground with the pump in a cellar about 4 feet below ground level.

Also, when the bladder tank is correctly adjusted how long should the pump run before attaining pressure?

Back when I had a well with a jet pump it had a 20/40 regulator but I changed it to a 30/50 so I'd have better pressure.
