I replaced the pressuretrol with a new one and it worked fine for about 3 weeks then started cutting off at 9 and back on at 7 like the original one did, I also replaced all pipes going to controls and gauges also the guage

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

You may have a new defective pressure control or you have a restriction to the control, you should double check all the piping again going to the control if you have a blockage that will cause that issue, other than that maybe just a bad new control..there is just not much else that would cause that issue at all.

Ok then you have some sort of blockage as nothing else would cause that issue, you may have a scaled up system causing the issue.
