Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoneFarmHand Good Tank
Reading these reviews helped me decide which product to buy. I bought this back in March so I thought I should wait a few months to see if any problems developed. I wanted to find something made in the USA if possible and this tank advertises that it is. When installing it I was taken aback by the words" made in China" on the cast iron elbow. The tank was easy to install and I had no leaks or problems with it. I had to lower the pressure for my system set up and this was easy as well. I was looking for something in stock that I could look at and this was, however, the store in Longview, Texas did not have a single 1 1/4 inch fitting for the connection. The plumbing manager said there was not enough demand to keep anything that size in stock.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Good Product Overall
All aspects of the buy/install process were easy and went smoothly. Good vs. excellent rating was given due to 3 small shipping dents. Examination of shipping box indicates inadequate protection midpoint between the 4 corner cardboard standoffs allowing shipping damage to occur in those areas. Doesn't affect functionality and the dents are not readily apparent.

The 86 gal tank if fine, except you need 1 1/2 inch pipe not the 1 1/4 inch that it states in the specs. On the web and the box, not very happy in the fact that I live out of town and had to make extra trip

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dugz It's Huge! Heavy duty diaphragm construction.
This is one big pressure tank. Our well used to run every 45 seconds with the shower running. Now it runs every 8 minutes!
The only gotchas that I ran into during installation were that I needed an 6" extension for my tank tee since this thing has a greater diameter. Secondly, the tank connection elbow is 1-1/4" FPT not the 1" size that I had and coincidentally is listed on the instruction booklet. A simple 1-1/4" x 1" steel bushing did the trick but it was an inconvenience to have to wait for the hardware store to open with my water system torn apart halfway through the installation.
Nevertheless, this seems to be a really nice, BIG, pressure tank for the price. As long as it holds up I will be happy.

I'm surprised at the number of reviewers who will accept a dented tank because it " doesn't affect its use". Please people consider a dented tank might have paint damage on the INSIDE of the tank that might rust through cutting the life span considerably. If not damaged it's probably a good tank.

The tank is a very good value. My biggest gripe is the fist sized dent that was in it. I decided to just live with it since I didn't want my water system down even longer to wait for a replacement. Plus, there is nothing but a box around it with no styrofoam so it's no wonder it had a dent. A second one would probably have a dent also. Regardless, the tank has been a great addition to our well system. We had a 20gal so I plumbed this one into the system so I had both. We went for pump run times of 16sec to a little over 2min. Worries of pump short cycling are gone and the drawdown is dramatically improved as one would expect. Well worth the cost for us.

High quality, easy to follow installation instructions (clear and understandable English), and has functioned well since installation (about a month). Instructions helped describe how to connect to the water pressure tank and set the correct tank pressure for the water pump pressure. Another MADE IN AMERICA quality product.

This is a great tank. I did have to get a reducer just like every one else. This tank is about exact to the old one in every way . Would recommend this tank very good. thanks Brent
