I had an issue with one of my VC tanks last season, I have been using the standard vinyl bladders, same bladders for the past 5 years, they hold air fine, however unless you pressurize the tank with inert gas and test the seal how do you really know if they are air tight. Check out this video from morewine @1.54
they show where these bladders/gaskets leak right at the seam? Not good for long term wine storage. They recommend rubber bladders. I actually ordered heavy duty rubber seals from Vinters Vault.

I'm still deciding if I should keep it pressurized with Co2 or Argon.

You don't want to loose any wine due to a leaking bladder
