Installed New System Water Pressure drops after 10-15 min of use.

I just installed a New 54Gal Pressure Tank, Pressure Switch 40/60, Pelican Water Filtration System With Softener, Whirlpool Smart 80 Gallon Hot Water Heater, The filtration system kills about 10 psi off the pressure so adjusted the pressure tank and switch accordingly. but when i run the shower for longer than about 10-15 min or 2 devices the pressure is only about 25 psi according to pressure gauge exiting the filtration system.

Welcome to the forums! What micron filter are you using? Do you only have one filter canister? Reason I ask is in harder water with more iron, I usually install two in tandem. The first with a 5 micron rope filter, and the second with a 1 micron carbon filter to remove taste. If you are using only a black carbon filter, then it is clogging up and can't handle the water movement. Try using your system without the filter in the canister and see what happens.
