I have installed a 50 gal bladder tank and water is not getting in the tank. The pressure gage shows 24psi, and I have lowered the tank pressure to 8psi. The tank is new and in the book that comes with the tank shows nothing to do except to hook up the 1-1/4" line. Am I doing something wrong? I also saw a plastic screen on the tank inlet prior to placing the 90deg. elbow. Any help would be helpful. Tony.

ps The pesure gage is 12" from the tank and no valve in between.
