Hi folks! All the videos online show pressure tanks with an easy pressure gauge on top. Well, mine doesn't have that.

I've drained the tank and want to get a reading on it so I can refill it.

Attached are a couple of photos showing my setup. Well pump is really short cycling and I think it's pressure tank related.

Thanks!

That is just an air over water tank, not a bladder or diaphragm tank. Not a very big one either. You can add air at any one of the three Schrader valves until air starts coming out of the Air Volume Control screwed into the tank just below the gauge.

If your bleeder system down the well is absent or not working you will have to add air regularly. Wouldn't use an old style air over water tank unless I was trying to get of iron or sulfur.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
