Product Overview

The Water Worker 86 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank features a steel shell to support the water weight, a polypropylene liner to help prevent taste or odor from being absorbed into the water and a thick diaphragm that keeps water separate from pre-charged air and helps to reduce air loss. This tank is designed as a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases, and the tank's deep-drawn steel construction offers excellent durability.

  • Polypropylene liner separates water from the steel shell to prevent taste or odor from being absorbed into the water; polypropylene liner does not require scheduled replacements for long-lasting use; 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, showerheads, 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

Will a 1.5hp pump be enough with this tank?

We have a 1.5hp well pump and want to get the 86 gallon tank, but want to be sure the pump is big enough....
Asked by: brat
Tank size is not based on pump horsepower. It is based on the number of fixtures in your house. You can safely oversize the tank. This reduces the number of time the pump motor has to start. This reduces heat in the motor and extends motor life. However if you undersized your tank, the motor has to start more frequently and this will greatly reduce motor life. Follow the tank manufacturers tank sizing instructions and you should be fine.

What is the diaphragm made of?

It says the liner is made of polypropylene but no info on the diaphragm material.

Butyl EPDM Rubber. It passes all NSF61 requirements for clean safe drinking water. It's formulated specifically for drinking water and has been used in well tanks for over 50 years.

I'm told that a well hand pump (for emergencies when there's no electricity) can be installed alongside my submersible pump in the well casing, and a safe-drinking-hose can be installed from that pump to the water tank's drain valve. That way I can get water in the house after pumping into the tank. Does this water tank have a drain valve and if so where is it located? Thank you for any information.
Asked by: handygal
you would install a drain valve on the tank T you purchase.

My existing tank is showing pressure under 20 psi, I have no water pressure, could this mean I need a new water pressure tank ??

Asked by: 21147
You need to cut off your well pump and open a faucet until no more water comes out, then use a pressure gauge to check the pressure in the tank. It sounds like you will need to add air to the tank, with either a bicycle pump or air compressor. The tank pressure should be 2lbs below the pressure level that your pump kicks on, as indicated by your pressure gauge. If you are not satisfied with the current water pressure in your house you can increase it at the pressure switch; keep in mind that the tank pressure needs to be adjusted accordingly, and you can't check the tank pressure if there is water in it.

86 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 109.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value This appears to be a good value compared to other units I looked at. I was pleased that it was made in the USA. I have only had this installed for about a month. It's obviously difficult to rate a product like this in that short time frame. If it was 3 years later and still operating the same I would give it a 5.

No dents or scratches. Inner Bladder was already pre-filled to 38psi (as listed). Seems to be working fine so far. Not much can go wrong other than a ruptured bladder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hydro pneumatic Tank Good tank for the price. Will need to remove galvanized fitting from the bottom and replace with Sch80 pvc or brass if using for drinking water.

My only problem was that the included literature mentioned the tools and material required for installation, including the 1" pipe to attach to the tank. However the connection was 1 1/4", so I had to return to the store to buy a reducer. No pressure adjustment was needed on the tank, although my pressure switch is 30/50, not 20/40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for irrigation system. Essential for proper pump operation. Prevents rapid cycling of pump. Be aware that this tank must be installed within five feet of pump for proper operation. In a normal residential installation tank should be installed with a 70 psi pressure relief valve. In this case, this pump will not exceed 70 psi even if the included pressure switch fails.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More water This tank provided much needed larger water capacity and steady water pressure at all sources as needed and puts less stress on our well pump. If you are looking at increasing your water tank I would recommend this one. Easy install. Totally plug and play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good It would have been so much easier if it was already pressurized. When the well is not close to any electrical outlets you have to run extension cords for the air tank in order to pressurize the tank, other than that its a great purchase.
