Pressure tank check

Is there a way to check an Amtrol pressure booster tank's bladder to see if it is inflating properly. I am using a jet pump with the tank to increase the water pressure in the house. The pump operates OK, but I am suspicious of the tank.

Turn off pump. Dump pressure on system by opening a faucet. Read pressure on the tank with a tire gauge. Should read 2 psi below the pump switch cut-on pressure.
