Is the little pipe that connects to the pressure switch clear?

I suggest you remove it and blow through it to make sure it is clear. If the pressure is getting to the switch, it has to shut off ... your switch should be set around 30/50 (on at 30 - off at 50)

Pumps water for a minute then shuts off.


Probably the pump has a water pressure protection switch. So it will not run dry and burn up. How is it that you are losing water pressure? On the delivery end or receiving. Restrictions on a pump always are placed output

Can the pressure switch on the Utilitech 1hp convertible shallow well pump be changed from 20/40 to 30/50?


Yes, if the plumbing can handle the extra pressure. There should be a nut in the middle of a large spring inside the pressure switch. Turn that nut clockwise to increase the pressure. You may need to run some water to keep the pump cycling while you do this.

Pump will not shut off


could be worn mechanical parts in the pump, or air in the pump. Make sure there is no air leaking into the suction/inlet side of pump.

I have a Utilitech 1hp shallow well jet pump which turns off and on rapidly while using water. I have 25 psi in the air tank. I replaced the pressure switch and still have problems.


Good you got it working. Please post again if you have more trouble on this or another item. Also be sure and check what I mentioned just in case you are operating at the margins, don't want a failure right after you got it going!

Air in faucets


The tree may have damaged a pipe,which is letting air into the system. I'm suprised you haven't mentioned a leak. It's possible for air to be pulled in thru the motor seal, if suction is high. High suction usually means trouble in the well, a clogged point or a malfunctioning check. Push on pipes and the pressure line to the switch, if they leak water out, air can be drawn in.
