OK Cary I will give it a try but what is your reasoning behind that suggestion?  I've always understood that minus 2 psi below cut in was the proper set up,

Thx Cary but yes I did set the air psi to 28, He has a 30/50 Square D switch. The system works fine during the day of normal use. They never have a water run out situation the issue is in the morning at the start of the day. The static pressure is gone in the morning (zero on the gauge) and a tripped switch. I now have him shutting the house side of tank manifold off at night and keep a record of what is found in the morning. This will eliminate the softener system that the well people say is maybe the issue . The pressure is going ??? is the big question.

Have an issue with a friends well system.  Intermittent pump cut out when waking up in the morning. He has to go down and cycle to lever on the pressure switch to revive it. Doesn't happen everyday though.  Well company has replaced the switch twice now (which I doubted it was). They think now the water softener is the issue but to me the pressure has to be going somewhere overnight. No external leaks anywhere we have found. I recently installed a new pressure tank but the problem was there before that. He wanted it changed just because of it's age. I'm not sure what pump ( nor does he) is in the well. I suspect it's foot valve or in the pump check valve that sometimes hangs up but this is a deep well ( 130 ft +/-) and 100 feet to the house.  Scratching our heads here.
