Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The Water Worker 32 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank is constructed of deep-drawn steel and features stainless-steel waterway lining for durability. The tank's steel shell supports the water weight to ensure water never sits in loose-fitting vinyl or rubber bags that can fold, crease and wear. A polypropylene liner separates the water from the steel shell to help prevent taste or odor from being absorbed into the water.

  • Designed as a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases
  • Polypropylene-lined steel supports water weight to ensure water never sits in loose-fitting vinyl or rubber bags that can fold, crease and wear
  • NSF certified
  • Polypropylene liner separates water from the steel shell to prevent taste or odor from being absorbed into the water, formed liner fits the steel shell for added durability
  • Stainless-steel waterway lining has no plastic to cross-thread, strip or crack
  • Sizing - count the number of water fixtures in and outside the home and multiply that # by 3; fixtures include faucets, spickets, shower heads, dish washer, washing machine, etc. for hot tubs and sprinkler systems add 1 to 2 fixtures for each; there are no disadvantages to having a larger well tank as fewer pump cycles will extend pump life and save money on electricity; tank stores a buffer of water in case of power outage
  • Thick diaphragm keeps water separate from pre-charged air and helps to reduce air loss
  • Molded diaphragm offers an ideal fit, sits on top of the water and will not fold, crease or drag against the steel shell
  • 32 Gal. of total volume; plain or galvanized tank equivalent of 82 Gal.
  • 2-part water-based paint system sprayed over a durable 2-part epoxy primer provides corrosion resistance and safe paint covering
  • 1 in. NPTF system connection uses malleable iron for dependability
  • Well tanks are not be used in Reverse Osmosis systems
  • Well tanks are not be used for water expansion in thermal (water heater) or hydronic (boiler/solar) systems

Answer: 
It only comes with the tank, you need your own pipes whether you use pvc or a metal "t" , and you need a pressure gauge, and a switch, which I recommend a new one it you are going through the bother of a new tank

No, you will need the appropriate type/length/diameter piping, a specially designed installation tee made of brass for strength, a drain valve, ball valve to install between pump and tank, a pressure appropriate relief valve, union fittings per your needs, teflon tape, appropriately sized pipe plugs according to your installation scenario, a stable platform to keep tank base above moisture, a tire Read More

WARNING - if you use a high pressure tank to set pressure you will probably end up destroying the tank bladder. Read Less

Answer: 
basic tools are all that is required. my pressure gauge and switch were still in good working order, so I did not have to replace them. I had to make a cut to copper pipe that supplies water from the tank to the house, so I just bought a quick connect coupler - the best way to do.

Answer: 
Pressurize the tank with compressed air. There is a valve on the top. It must be pressurized to 2# less than what the pressure switch is set for.. IE: if your switch is a 50# switch, pressurize the tank to 48#

Turn the electric to the pump off and drain the water out of the lines, the pump should not be running! Once the pressure drops to "0"psi , fill the tank with air to within two to three lbs within the pressure of the cut on setting of the switch. If the switch is set to come on at 40 lbs. set the air pressure in the tank to 38 psi, then leave one tap open to minimize slapping the pipe system with Read More

Answer: 
Use a compressor to add air back into the tank. (The same connection that you removed the air from) Follow the instructions in the manual as to what pressure you need in the tank. You will need a tire gage to measure the pressure in the tank. Do not over pressurize.

Do not use a motor powered air pump, as it can pump the air in so fast that you may not stop it in time and it WILL rupture the bladder and destroy the tank. The air inlet is on the top of the tank under a small black screw off cap, that sits near the outside edge of the tank. After pumping the tank back to the proper setting, replace the black cap. You have purchased a very well made tank. If you follow these instructions to the letter, you will only have to do it once and your tank will service you well for many years. Read Less

Answer: 
It's probably too late now, but the online price today is $219. Either they fixed the online listing or discontinued the $124 product. The lower priced item may have been a return that they were tring to get rid of.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 137 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install This product was super easy to install and even came precharged to the pressure needed so I didn't even need to add air. Nice product September 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Tank This is a great product. i hooked this tank up in a parallel set up with a 20 gallon water worker tank. The 20 gallon was great but my pump was coming on several times during a shower or doing laundry, and when the pump came on , it would only run for 30 seconds to fill the tank, now with both tanks hooked together, i can have a 15 minute shower before the pump turns on, and the pressure stays near the top for nearly ten minutes. Then the pump runs for about 2 to 3 minutes, this is more ideal and will save the pump, additionally , because of the storage, the other pump which fills the aerator tank up with well water, does not run near as much either, I did it this way because i did not have enough money to buy a bigger tank , if you have enough money, buy the 86 gallon for $345, that is a sweet deal, and there is really no down side to having a big tank. Oh also, having two tanks means that if one goes, the other keeps the system up and running, my plan is to put another 32 gallon on the house pump, and use the 20 for the well pump storage, to replace the lighter colored tank that is not good any longer, hope this helps, Good Luck!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It worked. No complaints other then the color. Needs to be a lighter color to reflect the sun. A couple minutes in the sun and you couldn't touch it with bare hands. Other than that, it works. August 30, 2016

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Made it easy The first one we got did not hold pressure. After a phone call to Home Depot online services then to the manufacturer telling us to call Home Depot to let them know so we did that and the woman at online services took the time to call our local Home Depot who verified they had the tank in stock and we could return it and purchase the new one right there. The new one works great. August 2, 2016
