Why do I keep losing water pressure?

It has been this way for a few days now, the water pressure will be fine at first then after minimal usage like one shower or 2, it starts to lose pressure, and goes down to nothing, and takes a while for the water pressure to build back up...What are some possible solutions?

Do you have your own well or are you on city water?

Sorry, should have given more details, I am on my own well...I have a craftsman tank, and its not too old maybe 7 yrs old, and not sure what pump or size...I do have a salt water system that is in line as well after the pump and tank setup...It may be low on salt, but that has never done this before when it gets low...Any suggestions would be helpful...Thanks
