water system seems to have low water pressure. Believe we have adequate water supply, but beleive the system is waterlogged. Currently have new 60 gal rubber bladder water tank. how do we correct this lower water pressure??

Your new pressure tank should have adequate air pressure on the bladder, but double-check it with a tire pressure gauge just to make sure (correct pressure should be stated on tank). If it's low, just add air pressure (portable air tank). If that's not the problem, you may need to check out everything down the well, which can cost several hundred bucks, if it all needs to be replaced. Low water pressure can be for a number of reasons (partially clogged supply lines, etc.), so just start with the easiest (air pressure) and work your way through them, until you're happy.
