Product Overview

The Water Worker 44 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank provides a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases. This durable tank features deep-drawn steel construction, stainless-steel waterway lining and a polypropylene liner that separates water from the steel shell to help prevent taste or odor from being absorbed into the water. This pre-charged tank is designed to maintain its air charge for years to offer easy upkeep.

  • Designed as a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases
  • Constructed of deep-drawn steel for durability
  • 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
  • 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
  • Stainless-steel waterway lining has no plastic to cross-thread, strip or crack
  • 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
  • 44 Gal. of total volume; plain or galvanized tank equivalent of 120 Gal.
  • Pre-charged to 38 psig; 100 psig maximum working pressure
  • Maintains air charge for years to provide easy upkeep

what to set the tank pressure at?

This question is from 44 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank

September 6, 2015
I bought the 44 gallon tank to hook up to my underground sprinkler system. I have a submersible well that is used for my sprinkler system only. I was hoping with the addition of the tank, which I never had before, that I would have a noticeable increase in the water output at the sprinkler heads. I have decreased and increased the tank pressure to see if it would help my pressure troubles. But the adjustments did not make any noticeable difference in my sprinkler pressure. Any ideas what I can do to get more pressure at the sprinkler heads? Thanks.

Answer: 
Install either a larger pump, or break up irrigation into smaller zones.
Another option is to decrease nozzle sizes on sprinkler heads and run system longer.

Answer: 
Pressure at the sprinkler head is dependent on:
1 – Pump output
2 – Pressure switch settings (if used)
3 – Distribution line length
4 – Distribution line size
5 – Sprinkler head numbers and flow rates
If the sprinklers don’t get enough pressure with the pump running, they won’t get more pressure by adding a tank.

Answer: 
Check air pressure. Should be 2lbs less than turn on pressure of pressure switch.
Also, turn your power off, open a faucet and drain ststem. Once no water comes out, "bump" the tank yo see if it is still holding water. If it is, it is bad!

There are 2 ways to check that I know of.
1. If pump is not working the best way to check your bladder tank is to disconnect bladder tank form your piping system. Next thing to do is pump air (use hand or electric air tire pump to do this with) into the air valve stem on top of tank (valve stem looks the same as the ones on your car tires) and see if you feel air coming out of the tank at the water line

There are 2 ways to check that I know of.
1. If pump is not working the best way to check your bladder tank is to disconnect bladder tank form your piping system. Next thing to do is pump air (use hand or electric air tire pump to do this with) into the air valve stem on top of tank (valve stem looks the same as the ones on your car tires) and see if you feel air coming out of the tank at the water line connector. It is best if someones helps you do this step. If air is coming out than tank bladder is broken and the tank is bad.
2. If pump is not ruined and you notice pump kicking on and off more than normal than you need to check your bladder tank. Run your pump until if reaches it's high pressure cut off. Now let air out of your bladder tank by pressing something into the air valve on top of tank and let all air out of tank. If any water comes out of this valve while bleeding this air off than bladder is broke and tank is shot. If you get no water out air valve than bladder should be fine and you must add the air back that you had bled off.. Turn pump off , open a water faucet to bleed water pressure off, and than pump air back into bladder tank to 2 psi less than what your low pressure pump kick on is set at. If pressure switch is 30/50 than bladder pressure is to be 28. Check you gauge to see what pressure it drops to before pump kicks in and set bladder tank pressure to 2 lbs less what is shows on the gauge for a more accurate way to know how much air to put in bladder. Once air is put in bladder tank close faucet and let pump start up until it reaches high pressure cut out.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality tank Tank is of very good quality, but the base was dented due to being dropped at some point in its journey from the factory to my residence. Because the base in no way impacted the tank I used it anyway rather than cart it back to the store, and it works the way it's supposed to. The inlet elbow at the bottom of the tank is 1.25" and needs to have a bushing installed in order to work with a 1" tank tee. August 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great got this as a replacement my 20gal failed after 3 yrs ( new home had not idea tank was to small ) this 44gal is amazing can't say enough about the difference it has made. I believe you should always go a little bigger than the minimum required you will get a lot more use from it cheaper on power bill also August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tank failure at less than 2 years This tank lasted less hand two years. The bladder depressureized and caused the pump to cycle more frequently. Would not buy this cheap brand again. August 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just a fit!! Works well and very easy to install. Be sure to buy all fittings before you leave the store! August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Okay Water Tank I received the item okay, with one dent on the side near the top, which didn't affect it's performance, but concerning nonetheless. The product description says it has a 1-inch inlet, which is NOT correct. It's actually 1-1/4 and you need to buy a reducer to get it down to 1-inch. Also, the tank had some rust inside, which concerned me if the item was actually new. I couldn't afford to ship the item back or I would have after seeing the rusty bottom where the cap covered the 1-1/4 piping. Shipping time was reasonable. I don't recommend this item due to the dent in the side, rust on the bottom, poor instructions, and price. June 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satisfied with pump pressure tank purchase This was a straight-forward job, easy to install, and a kind of a no-brainer. I felt like it would be a good product, after reading the reviews. I bought it from Home Depot and was not disappointed....it worked and continues to works, perfectly. I got the PVC pipe, joints, reducers, elbows, solvent, and glue, I needed at Home Depot and, in less than an hour after that, I had water again! Saved myself a huge plumbing bill in the process! June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fit our needs! Installed ourselves, with only one return trip to a Home Depot store for necessary plumbing needs. This pressure tank has been in use for three weeks and has performed as expected! April 7, 2016
