Shallow well pump

I have a shallow well pump (20/40)with a reverse osmosis
system attatched. It sits on a small (20 gal) bladder
tank. The problem is that the pump is kicking on about
every 15 min because its not holding the required 40 lbs.
I had to turn off the reverse osmosis system because the
pump was kicking on about every min with it running. Ive
checked for any leaks in the piping but found only that
there was alot of condensation. I had to have one of
the well pipes replaced about a year ago and Im hoping
that I dont need to get a new well. Im looking for
another reason as to why the pump is kicking on so
often. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate
hearing them. Thank You
