I was going to suggest that your tank blatter had been compromised. Then I saw your update.
One of our rentals had a blatter type pressure tank. I don't care for that system.
I much prefer the air control system.
This system is a tank with no blatter.
Everytime your pump shuts OFF a little bit of air seeps into the main line.
When your pump turns ON that air is shoved into the pressure tank.
As your pressure runs down during use, excess air is allowed to escape the tank through a valve. Therefore maintaining the correct amount of air spring in the tank.
There is no air pressure to think about or maintain because that perfect amount of air in the tank will result in the required air pressure between the on /off pressure of the pump.
Maybe something for you to consider if you find out your tank is toast.
