Knowing the pressure tank make and model would be useful as it would help determine if your tank has a bladder or not -- procedures vary thereafter.

No markings? Ensure Shrader valve is working properly and holds pressure -- a Schrader valve is the same as the valve in vehicle tires and the stem (internal) is easily replaced. If Shrader valve is operating properly, listen to the sound that is made when you add air to the tank. If it sounds similar to when you add air to a tire, you have a bladder tank -- if you hear bubbles, either your tank has no bladder or has been compromised.

You will also need to know the on/off settings on your pressure switch to move forward.
