From what?

ANS 2 -Defective bladders are quite common when tanks are 10 or more years old. -On most tanks over 50 gal or so, the plate on base where incoming water is connected, can be unbolted. BEFORE doing this, MAKE SURE you can get a new bladder ! - Not all tanks companies will sell just the bladder, and some make them so expensive you may as well buy a new tank ! When this is done, just pull out the old bladder and carefully insert the new one. -I've done this on many tanks bigger than 120 gal - you have a large hole to work with there. Smaller tanks are not so easy.
