Can I put 70psi on this tank and use it as a well water tank.

Asked by Jason May 13, 2019

Answers

Yes and no...depends on where in your setup you are thinking to put it. Since this tank cannot hold any pressure, you CANNOT use it at all as a pressure tank in your lineup. However, you can use it before a jet pump and after the submersible well pump. Basically using this tank as a holding tank (cistern). Your well pump will supply this tank. Set the well sub-pump to shut off with an in-tank float switch when full. Then the tank just sits ready for a response from your jet pump pressure switch. Of course you will also need a regular pressure tank in conjunction with your jet pump. This setup is used often for low yielding wells to give a "reserve" of water in the tank that is filled by the well pump during off hours. There are other items you would need. (google it) Maybe a cycle sensor (or Pumptec unit) to protect the well pump and a low level float switch in the tank to protect the jet pump. A check valve inline, etc etc.

The length of time the water will remain drinkable will depend on the quality of the water stored and the storage conditions.

First, read Smiddywesson's review. I did and it was of great help. Palleted shrink wrapped tank fit perfectly in my F-150 for the ride home. My tank had no cosmetic damage. Regarding the different sized inlet/outlet openings, who knows? Someone somewhere has justification. Anyway, the PVC plug for the top one is readily available at HD. The three reducers for the bottom outlet are, as well, but you have to look close for the threaded 1 1/2' x 2" - it's not on their website but I found mine mixed in a box of unthreaded ones when poking around. However, because it wasn't on their website I first ordered one online elsewhere at more cost only to find it later at HD. I also used a (copper) hose bib for the outlet which reduced the need for the third reducer. I placed the tank on two pallets with a layer of pavers (left over from another project) to not only clear a bucket but to provide a continuous flat support eliminating spaces between slats the tank may sag into (probably not as it's really thick). Anyway, eezy peezy. I'm using it for an emergency water supply and figure about 6oz of household bleach will provide sufficient treatment.

Tank was as described and received defect free. Note that the tank is shorter and wider than the picture, read the dimensions in the description. The top side fitting is 1-1/2" F NPT and the bottom 2" F NPT. The fittings can be removed and swapped. I had the tank delivered, if you want to save the $55 it will easily fit in a pickup truck. There are gallon reference marks on the side of the tank marking every 50 gallons, but the tank is not translucent enough to see the water level. The 300 gallon mark is below the top side fill port. The bottom port is not low enough to completely empty the tank. If you wanted the last 10 gallons out of it you would need to drop a sump pump in with a low level pickup. The top has a large screw lid around 16" with a smaller, 4" removeable vent.

I'm only writing this review because in considering what to buy for a second tank I've decided to simply go with what I had before. The two negative reviews were from people who didn't read the specs and/or must live miles from a source of parts. The dimensions are clearly stated. The bits and pieces to plumb the unit are going to vary by application. I live in Texas and try to accumulate as much of the rainwater that runs off my house as possible. When it rains it pours. We go long periods without rain. Its nice to drain my rain barrels to my bigger tank and my trees and gardens get rain water for most of the time between rains. When the barrels overflow I watch with envy at the water that got away. I'll solve that problem somewhat with another 300 gallon tank like this one, the one I bought before.

The tank is misrepresented in this listing. The picture is of a 300 gallon vertical tank , but when it arrived is was a 300 gallon tank with horizontal dimensions. Very disappointed and time wasted. Maybe this error has been corrected by I.T. but it cost my Company money because we had to find a vertical tank quickly and had to pay more because of Home Depots mistake. Won't make that mistake again...

I cannot believe neither Home Depot nor the manufacturer gives you any idea of necessary fittings or options as to how to use the outlet or the sizes needed. Home Depot doesn't even sell the first needed nipple! If you want to use a hose from the tank you need four pieces - a nipple , a ball valve, a bushing and hose adapter. I have yet to figure out the sizes. I measured and photographed the outlet and still ended up with the wrong nipple (and thus the other three pieces). It is just incompetent of the mfgr not to have diagrams of the various options for use AND the fitting sizes! As far as I know the tank will serve my needs and it seems durable. I'll write another review when it is in use.

This is a super product. First, you can forget about that photo, that's the wrong picture. The 300 gallon tank isn't tall and skinny, it's shaped more like the propane tank on your grill. The specs say it's 45" in diameter, and 60" tall. It fits almost perfectly on a pallet. I placed mine on four pallets to get the faucet high enough off the floor to slip a 5 gallon bucket. The web site doesn't list it, but the inlet is 1" and the outlet is 2". I used three bushings and a hose bib on the outlet. I did this for a reason. If it leaks, you don't have to over tighten one bushing to get an extra full rotation to stop the leak, between the three you will be able to make it up. Use three rotations of teflon tape, I found two too little and four a bit snug. The three bushings I used were 1/2" x 3/4", 3/4" x 1 1/2", and 1 1/2" x 2". The tank was delivered to Home Depot in shrink wrap on a pallet. It had a 1.12 mm gouge running vertically about 6" to the right of the outlet. The service tech stated the tanks are very thick at the bottom and the gouge was cosmetic. Knowing they can contain around 2400 lbs of water, I would imagine so. Folks, I've done a lot of work to determine what's right for me. I wanted this water storage in case of a hurricane or similar emergency. Vertical storage of 55 gallon drums is neither economical or space efficient. This is both. A word to the wise, make sure you have a support structure that can hold 2400 lbs. I have this in the basement, but if I didn't, I'd place a beam and two lolly columns under it.
