Pump turns off real quick

I bought a Goulds 1 1/2HP multistage pump. The question is- After turning on a hose bib, the bladder tank drops to 30PSI in a couple of minutes. The pump kicks in and goes to 50PSI in a few seconds. This happens during the use of the open hose bib. Is this proper operation of this pump/system? Thank you
for any info on this matter.

This is not proper operation. The pump sounds like it is short cycling. You may need to open more hose bibs to keep this from happening.
