    Yes, it depends on what it is. Could be plastic tubing, copper tubing, brass or galvanized nipple or who knows what. But those plumbing items that feed pressure to the switch may be plugged and taking them apart and inspecting them is the only way you will know.

    the problem is solved.
    the stem where the gauge and switch attach was so clogged I don know how any water was getting through! After cleaning out that little pipe, all works perfect again.

    Default I had the same problem!

    This blog just helped me solve my water problems too!!!! The symptoms were the same and the problem was the same. The small pipe to the gauge and pressure switch was completely clogged. Thank you so much for making this information available.
