Bladder tank is just a convenience thing- certainly not necessary. If it does go bad, just DRAIN it, restart the pump. Old plain tanks used to have an air valve on them so as not to get waterlogged. Starting and stopping too often means it is waterlogged....ie, not enough air space in the tank. That's why you pump some air in to create the 'cushion' above the water to make the system work right. I've never had a bladder tank- current tank (since 1997) is an old (bad) 52 gallon water heater. Put a tire valve on it to pressurize when necessary. Can't remember the last time I had to do that. Been at least a couple years since I had to drain it and restart.
