What is the proper pressure for the tank once the water pump is turned back on? Is it 28 PSI or 50 PSI with a 30/50 pressure switch? If water comes out of the air valve on the top, does that mean the tank is bad?

If you have a tank with a rubber bladder and you get water out of the air valve, the tank is bad and needs replaced.
