40 to 60 pounds is "normal". Over 80 is too high and will cause problems with your plumbing fixtures and water heater. Good luck.
You can buy an inexpensive test gauge that attaches to an outside faucet. Just be sure to run the water a bit before hoking it up so you do not get a false reading from air trapped in the gauge.
