Well pump short cycling


This morning I noticed my pump cutting on and off very frequently. After work I went under the house and the pressure gauge goes up to 60 then down to thirty very quickly and keeps doing it over and over. I found this piece leaking slightly, I have no idea what it is. COuld this be causing the short cycling? If so what is it and can I replace it myself. Thanks in advance.

Sorry it is well water, the line comes in from well and goes to pressure tank, this valve is on the way to pressure tank.

Re: Well pump short cycling


Is short cycling while the water is being or when taps are all shut?
