    What causes a shallow home water wells pressure to drop off and not maintain pressure while running irrigation system?
    Pressure switch working properly set on 30/50
    Verified pressure tank air pressure set at 28 lbs.
    Drained pressure tank and no apparent problem with the bladder.

    Simple supply and demand issue. Demand is exceeding supply.
