Some suggestions: Check for hissing in the well. It would be be a sign of a leak. Replace the bladder. go up one size larger than is currently there. Remember to replace the gauge also. Pull the shower heads and check for debris. Replace shower heads. You may have to also pull faucet handles and replace the gaskets that touch against the seat. If you are unable to do this stuff, first call a pump and well company, they would be able to test the system by presurizing it and doing repairs upward of the bladder. Past that they would recommend a plumber for the rest to hunt down the clog. One last thing, use local companies rather than chains. They cost less for their services.
