    What part of Texas is this? If it is a well set in sand, it should not have any shale in the sand.
    The shale and sand should not in the same layer.

    At that depth the water would stop and not flow any higher or build anymore pressure at the well head.

    NEVER put soap in a water well. If this water is for drinking, you would be in the bathroom for a very long time. If a small child were to drink this water, it could put them in the hospital.

    Does the well blow the air after the pump shuts of or is it all the time?

    If its just when the pump shuts off, that is the well replacing the water that was just pumped out.

    Check to make sure you didn't screw the nipple that the pressure switch sits on to far down. If it is too tight or to far down in the check valve.
    The stopper in the check will hit the nipple.

    If its just the kitchen sink. Take a look at the spray nozzle that sits over to the side.
    If it drips while you are running water, that is the cause of the air.
    Change it and the air will go away.

    YES, you do need a relief valve. The best place to put it is at the well head itself.
    If its underground you can place it anywhere before the tank and pressure switch.
