Definitely leaving a lower faucet open is fine. obviously one higher than the bottom of the tank won't drain the tank, and closing faucets after the draining can put back pressure on the bladder as you fill it, so keep the faucet open.Huh? This land is sloped. Every faucet save the one at the pumphouse is lower than the tank.
Seems to me that just getting the water level in the plumbing lower than the tank, and leaving the faucet at the pumphouse open to the air, gives the zero pressure you need for an accurate measure.
Draining everything at the far ends of the several underground lines seems unneeded. Do you have a reason for that?
It's fine if there's a check valve above the tank and you only drain the tank vicinity.
