    Pressure is good for about 15 Mins.then pressure drops to 0. I can shut off breaker for a couple of mins.then cut breaker back on and water pressure will build back up. I have plenty of water.

    I started a new thread for you. If you are sure you have plenty of water, the overload in your motor is probalby tripping out. It just takes a few minutes for it to reset itself. If this is the case, it will come back on in a few minutes without cycling the breaker on and off.
