I see ... that would suck and require me (or rather a company to come out and) pull the pump ($$$) ... sigh ... I'll check the amps first, though (thx).
Thanks for the input ... here's my plan for the weekend:
1. Check the filter (whole house) - might be clogged
2. Bypass the switch to see if the pump can still produce pressure
3. Clean (or replace) the switch tosee if the pwr leakage stops
4. Check the amps when pump is running to check for hole in pipe
