Open a hose spigot or the sample tap to drain the tank. Apply a small amount of psi with an air compressor to the snifter valve to completely evacuate the pressure tank of all water. Turn off the hose spigot/sample tap and add the proper amount of air into the tank Your system has now been re-pressurized.
How do I get pressure back in my pressure tank?
Quote from Youtube video: If your pressure is not 2 to 3 psi below your cut on pressure you will need to adjust. It. First you'll need an air compressor. And an inflator or air chuck.
How do I recharge my pressure tank?
A simple method for recharging the air in a water pressure tank is to turn off the pump, attach a garden hose to the tank drain, open the hose, drain the tank completely, and then let the pump re-fill the tank. Opening a nearby faucet or valve will speed the drain process and may help let air into the water tank.
How do you reset a pressure tank?

Why isn’t my pressure tank filling up?
Bladder tanks can become waterlogged for many reasons. Some of the more common reasons are: Sediment, such as iron and manganese, can coat the surface of the bladder, causing it to harden and become less flexible. Sediments can plug the fill or draw line, preventing the tank from filling and emptying normally.
What happens when a pressure tank loses pressure?
As the water level in the tank drops from household demand, pressure in the tank declines to a preset minimum. The well pump then actuates to pump more water into the tank and restore pressure. An under-inflated air bladder results in lower water pressure output from the tank.
