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.

Answer: 
Prior to operation, with the tank, empty of water, the pressure should be 2psi below the cut-on pressure. So, for example, with a 30-50 pressure switch (factory default setting), air pressure in the tank will equal 28psi. If the pressure switch is adjusted to 40-60, the cut-on pressure will be 38psi.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 100 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This appears to be a quality product and performs as advertised. 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. October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well made and good price. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk It failed within 2 years and the company warranty is only 1 year. I would give it negative 5 stars if I c ould. October 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pressure Tank I purchased the next Water Worker 86 gallon pressure tank. Installed it my self and it aooears to be working great. I would make the same purchase again October 4, 2016
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
