Generally the pressure in the tank air bladder should be 2 psi below the water pressure switch kick in (pump turn on) point. In this example of 48 to 68 Lbs the air bladder pressure should be 46 psi. This pressure should be measured with the tank empty of water, that is to say NO water pressure applied. NEVER over pressurize the air bladder - it would be better to under pressurize if in doubt. Some tank manufacturers may recommend a different PSI differential so check with the tank literature or the manufacturer.
