The pressure in your tank should be checked with water drained from the tank, with the water drained the air pressure in the tank should be set 2psi lower than your kick in pressure. So for a kick in pressure of 25psi the tank air pressure should be set at 23psi.

Ans 2 - Water should NOT be totally drained from the tank or you may get a false reading ! - Leave 2-3 gallons in the tank. Most systems have the pressure switch set at 30 Psi, so tank residual pressure should be 28psi. - Lower than this gives really dismal pressure in the shower, especially if it's on second floor.

How much air should be put in a deep well bladder tank?

The air charge in a bladder tank should be 2 PSI below the pressure switch ON setting. In other words if the pressure switch is a 30-50, then the tank air should be 28. -If the pressure switch is the higher 40-60, then the tank air is 38. These tanks are all charged at the top and you can check air pressure there also.
