How do you pressurize your water system with a well mate pressure tank?

The tank comes with a residual air pressure of about 40 PSI. This can be regulated through the air nipple at top of tank. If you are going to use 30/50 as is common, then set tank air to 28 by adding or letting air out of this nipple while the tank is empty of water. After setting this pressure, adjust the pressure switch to come ON at 2 psi above this , ie 30 PSI. Now when the water level lowers in the bladder the pump will switch ON before the tank is empty. If tank residual pressure is very low on an old tank it is possible that your bladder has holes.
