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

I see there's a galvanized T (between 13"-16"), a Check Valve on one side, and a pressure gauge on the other. Could you list a complete setup including costs?

Answer: 
This tank has a 1-1/4" npt connection on the bottom of the tank. You screw your existing pipe into that connection or install new piping. I would recommend you replace the pressure switch and system pressure gauge when replacing the tank. You may also need a tire pump or air compressor to adjust the bladder pressure prior to system startup.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 89 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Built like a Tank (sure hoped so) Purchased this to replace a failed Flotec tank that we bought from Homer 16 years ago. There is nothing similar between the two. The older style three-legged tank left plenty of room under and made for easy plumbing hook up with a union. This one has a 360 degree ring base with about a 3" x 4" oval hole for the plumbing. Did manage to get it hooked into the existing water tank manifold (we run with four tanks normally due to a very deep well) that involved turning the tank about 45 degrees and running some flex pipe. I envision having to bore one or more 2" holes in the base skirting to get the first mouse nest out from under it in the future. All of that said, construction quality is excellent and the price was right. Installation hint: These things have NOTHING to grab hold of them with. I used a couple of Homers ratcheting load binders put tightly around the tank. Made jockeying it around solo an easy task. May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent !!! Easy install , Works great. Very fast shipping. Light weight easy to move into place. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well water tank Works great. Shipping of product was fast with no damage,to the store. Thanks August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Inspection process improvement needed The tank was damaged in two (2) area’s. The base was bent and there was a dent about halfway up on the side of the tank ( pictures attached). There were no damages to the shipping box which indicates to me that the damage occurred prior to packing. With thinking the damage should not affect performance and I had not been in need of a tank at once and the item been stocked at a local store, I would have returned it. December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It worked Worked fine. Will see how long it last. Seems to be of good quality July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bigger is sometimes better Easy to install and being larger than old tank the pump will run less. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by super size super price I had this tank sent to my local store for pick up and it was delivered fast and in prefect condition. Tank is installed and working Great only issue is buy a 1 1/4" to 1" hex bushing for the outlet pipe. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase at Home Depot Installation was a piece of cake. Unit comes with 90 degree elbow at tank bottom for connection to your well system. I would suggest replacing your pressure switch and pressure gauge when replacing the tank. The tank has now been in service for one month and is working great! May 31, 2016
