Output pressure goes to zero after pump stops

After the system shuts off the pressure guage on the ouput side is going to zero after about 5 minutes or less. It used to stay pressurized all the time.
Does this mean one or more of the valves is allowing water past it?

There might be a leaking check valve letting water drain back into the well.
