    Pump short cycling, water surging

    So, I recently replaced my well pump switch. It was a 40/60 switch, but I bumped it up to 50/70 because that was what my old one was set to. Now I am having an issue where the pressure is dropping below 50 rapidly. The pump will kick on and then the pressure jumps to 70 within a second or two causing the pump to kick off. This continues for as long as I have any water in the house on. I have a video, but I the forum wont let me upload videos. Thank you for an help with this, it is greatly appreciated. Also of note, when I switched out the switch, I drained the system, and repressurised the tank to 2 psi below the cut in.
