Pressure settings
I replaced the expansion tank just because I had to replace the water heater. It was a 2 gal. expansion tank. There isn't much to it but the instructions were not too extensive. Can I adjust the pressure(preset at 40 psi) while it is connected. I obtained a pressure gauge after the install and found my water pressure at 100 psi! All in all, it works well.

Very Satisfied
After replacing a defective pressure reducing valve in my house, I still had wide variations in my water pressure caused by thermal expansion. The new valve reduced the pressure from 120 psi to 55 psi, but it would invariably increase. When the gas water heater was running, the pressure would go as high as 120 psi. Even when the water heater was off, the pressure would slowly increase to 80 psi. This seems to have done the trick. Even though I only have a 50 gal water heater, I went with the larger size (4.5 gal instead of 2 gal) because it was only $9 more and a larger tank provides better regulation with no negative side effects.

    Tank is fine pex adapter HD carries in-store is crap
    I used the Apollo 3/4 pex to 3/4 female pipe adapter, model APXFA3434 from Home Depot with this tank. Turns out that adapter HD carries in store has bad ratings. I have a tiny leak that no matter how tight or how much teflon tape I use won't go away. Going to try the highly rated Sharkbite brand 3/4 swivel adapter. Now I have a scratched tank. This post is more of a warning for others than a product review.

      Used for a new heater. The old one was leaking and somehow not nicely connected. ;-) Don't forget to adjust the tank pressure to the water pressure!

        No complaints. I replaced a different model that had a pinhole leak for way longer than I knew. Hopefully this one will hold up longer. I needed to pump it up to 70 PSI to match my water pressure. The upside down installation is OK per the manufacturer.
