Water heater / Water pressure

Does the water travel from the water heater to the water pressure tank and then distributed throughout the house? Also, I was looking at my pressure tank and the gauge says it's at 40psi. There is a knob on some piping that leads out of it and goes to the water heater. It's turned all the way to one side like it's either all the way on or all the way off. I didn't even pay attention to which way it was turned though. Would this be the knob that controls the pressure? I can take a picture if necessary.

Yeah, pictures would tell a lot. Try to get some that show as much of the system as you can.

I've been on pumps most of my life.
A handle type valve will be closed if it is sticking out at an L from the pipe(usually)

The air bladder will go almost anywhere in the line,it only keeps constant pressure so the pump doesn't cycle off and on.The air tank has it's own pressure when there is no water pressure,usually less than half the line pressure.

A pressure gauge on top of the pump will give you the pressure fror kick on and off.Usually20/ 40 p.s.i.
