Turn off city water
Turn off water pump if on.
Turn on any faucet wait 1 min
Turn on water pump
let water run 1 min
Turn off faucet
turn off water pump
Wait for water pump to quit running
Turn on city water

This reseats the check valve in the water pump. Do not run the water pump when connected to city water.

Instead of replacing the pump which is expensive, or replacing the check valve in the pump which is a pain in the a__, or even a ball valve which requires you to take some action (opening it up) when you want to use the tank water, why not spend $10.00 for a 1-way check valve that will fit inline in the pex tubing.

They are available at Home Depot, Lowes or any other home improvement store, or any plumbing supply house, not to mention Amazon, eBay and other online sellers.

Fast, Easy and Cheap Permanent solution.

I have the same problem with mine. For me the solution is to simply turn off the pumps when hooked up to city supply. No issues like for me.

Unless you are in a situation where the city water supply pressure is tremendously low (think 8-10 campers hooked to one line at a rally) your pump SHOULD ALWAYS BE OFF when hooked to city water.
