In response to Re: point bounce on pressure switch
: : It is probably more a case of the pressure oscilating and causing the points to open and close rapidly. Check the air pressure in the tank when the water is completely drained from the tank.

: This happens only when the pressure in the tank is getting about ready to shut off. It does not do this from kick in pressure until it is ready to trip. I went down & checked it as it shut off, was at 36lbs. Tank is a 36 gal precharge with 18 lbs of air. I gave it a little more on the shut off so that it will run to 40-42 lbs, do you think that will help?
: : : Thanks,

Since you say it shuts off ok but right then closes again and then repeats, I think you may have a bad pressure switch.
