Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing field for 20 years. The filter should be after the well tee and not between the well and the pump. The water from the well to the pump should always be unrestricted. When the filter is clogged it will make the pump work harder than it should. The filter goes after the bladder. The bladder pressure is now also too high if you pumped it up to 20 psi. Check your pressure switch to see what you have. 20/60, 30/50 for example. To set the correct pressure for your tank you would turn the power off and release the water pressure by opening a faucet. Once the pressure is released then pump the air pressure to be 2 psi less than the turn on pressure. For example if you have a 30/50 pressure switch then the air pressure should be 28 psi.
