I am not sure what to think, just have to see what this fellow says tomorrow(today). I was in there today wiring up a plug outlet in the room for the Iron Filter (which was ran out of the room and plugged in). In the process of tacking the Iron Filter cord, I had to raise up on the copper pipe coming from the pressure tank. When that was all done, I went and turned the breaker back on, went ino the room to make sure the Iron Filter was ticking (timer) and the well pump turned on! When it stopped the guage was reading 50 PSI which is the highest I have seen it to date. Wierdness. Ok, I'll keep ya posted when I get something figured out.
Oh yah, before I forget this time... Thank you all for the support

The well servie guy, Greg, fixed the problem today! He replaced the switch, and now it will turn itself on at 30psi, pump up to 50 psi. He told me it should never go below 20 before turning on, and yet it was dropping to 0 as of late. He informed me there was a diaphram in the swith, and it had water in it so he figured it had a leak and that's what was causing my problems. And to top it off it cost me $84 ($59 for the service call, $26 for the switch). So all in all, I am happy that this situtation if finally resolved... so far as I know, and thank you all for your suggestions.
