Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mitch air volume control
installed 8 days ago in a 42 gal pressure tank, I use this because Ive got iron in my water and a iron filter that puts air into the sistem to leach out the iron this bleeds out any extra air

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Very pleased Home Depot sells this and other well parts.
The Flotec air volume control (AVC) was easy to install and has performed well for the past several months. The AVC was installed on my new Flotec 42 gal. standard well tank (P/N FP7235), also purchased from HD. The replacement tank has also performed very well. As a note, I installed a 32" magnesium anode rod (purchased from Amazon) in the new tank, to help ensure a longer life.
On a tech note, homeowners with clear iron in their well water that are using a chem-free iron filter benefit from standard well tanks compared to bladder tanks. These tanks help to oxidize and to precipitate the dissolved iron (and manganese) out of the water. For a budget homeowner, a whole house water filter also works very well to capture the precipitate, but requires more maintenance to clean and reuse filters compared to a automatic, self-backwashing chem-free iron filter.
I'm very pleased that Home Depot sells this and other well products for homeowners. Standard (air over water) well tanks and associated components (i.e. AVCs, bleeder orifices, and snifter valves) are getting harder to come by.
