I wouldn't rely on that pressure gauge too much. They usually go bad after a few years and read inaccurately. Get a gauge that screws on to your outside faucet and verify the pressure readings. If it's really kicking off at 44 psi then I would start looking at the pressure switch. They're not expensive to replace if you can do it yourself. Hope this helps.
