Use the Water Worker 119 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank as a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases. This pre-charged tank is constructed from durable deep-drawn steel and is designed to maintain its air charge for years to offer you easy upkeep. The tank's polypropylene-lined steel shell supports the water weight to ensure water never sits in loose-fitting vinyl or rubber bags that can fold, crease and wear.
Designed as a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases
Constructed of deep-drawn steel for durability
Polypropylene-lined steel supports water weight to ensure water never sits in loose-fitting vinyl or rubber bags that can fold, crease and wear
NSF certified for clean safe drinking water
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
Sizing - count the number of water fixtures in and outside the home and multiply that # by 3; fixtures include faucets, spickets, showerheads, dish washer, washing machine, etc. for hot tubs and sprinkler systems add 1 to 2 fixtures for each; there are no disadvantages to having a larger well tank as fewer pump cycles will extend pump life and save money on electricity; tank stores a buffer of water in case of power outage
System connection: 1-1/4 in. NPTF, threaded malleable iron elbow with stainless steel insert and connection does not include plastic that can cross-thread or crack
Rated to 200° F and 200 psi
Thick diaphragm keeps water separate from pre-charged air and helps to reduce air loss
Molded diaphragm offers an ideal fit, sits on top of the water and will not fold, crease or drag against the steel shell
119 Gal. of total volume; plain or galvanized tank equivalent of 315 Gal.
Pre-charged to 38 psig; 100 psig maximum working pressure
Maintains air charge for years to provide easy upkeep
2-part water-based paint system sprayed over a durable 2-part epoxy primer provides corrosion resistance and safe paint covering
1-1/4 in. NPTF system connection uses malleable iron for dependability
Well tanks are not be used in Reverse Osmosis systems
Well tanks are not be used for water expansion in thermal (water heater) or hydronic (boiler/solar) systems

Tank was delivered (came from Rhode Island by truck), and I installed it in about 3 hours, upgrading my connecting plumbing as I went. It replaced a much smaller 16 year old Champion full of iron deposits. The new tank is as advertised, but is not an off-the-shelf item. The only things that disappointed me were: the quality of the packing (the tank was not secured or braced within the box and the bottom of the box, rather than being a fork-accessible pad, was a piece of (crushed) honey cone cardboard), and the inside of the 1 1/4 elbow at the bottom of the tank had to be cleaned of corroded metal debris before I could connect it to my system.

First of all, your picture on the page does not accurately represent the item. You really need to fix the picture. The sizes on the dimensions portion of the page seemed to be a tad bit off. The tanks went in pretty quick and easily. We had to re-pipe the entire system but, we are happy having 200+ gallons of water with water pressure. The price was lower than LOWES!

Ordered tank ship to store picked up in 8 days. Real big tank also very heavy. need to make sure you have the room. I purchased this tank because my new well pump was short cycling cut in cut out 35 seconds already have a 20 gal pressure tank.. installed October 23 2016.easy install by myself, added it to all the other tanks and cut in cut out is 3 1/2 minutes. My water filter can back wash and the pump comes on once!!! I don't know if Ill recoup the money in electricity in its lifetime, but hopefully it will help pump last.

Great tank works as advertised.
Seaside Restoration installed the tank for extra water for the garden. The tank works well and we do not run out of water.

Reduced pressure fluctuations
I replaced an aging 58 gallon tank with this 119 gallon tank and immediately noticed reduced pressure fluctuation, fewer pump cycles and as a result, vastly improved and consistent water pressure. No more droopy showers; just steady pressure regardless of the number of faucets being used. Installation took less than a half an hour. And because the pump cycles less, the life of the pump will be extended. Just an added bonus.

Works great, workmanship is lacking.
I bought 4 of these for my well and they function without any issues. The only part I didn't like is the workmanship. Each tank has an inlet at the bottom and when you line the tanks side by side, facing straight forward, the inlet/outlets don't all point forward and are not all centered. The graphics on the tanks are affixed at all kinds of angles. As if though a 5 year old was sticking them on. Obvious lack of care. Just build it, sell it, and move on. On the plus side, they work great and are priced reasonably.

So far, tank works fine
It's only been about 2 months since I installed the new tank. Much less on/off of pump as with the old 119 gallon galvanized tank. Will it last 40 years like the galvanized tank? I have some doubts about that. This review should be done in 5 or 10 years.

Big blue high capacity tank
This tank has given my family higher capacity flow and water pressure. My old tank required air bleeding as a maintenance item; this tank has a bladder set to 38psi which to me is great. I am impressed, because of the tank's size, the well pump doesn't run as frequently.

Good quality and capacity. Easy to install.
Replaced old leaking well tank with a new 119 Water Worker pressure tank. The tank is working very good and contains enough reserve water so that the well pump only comes on occasionally. That will extend it's life. Making the single "T" pipe connection to the tank was easy. I did take time to replace the old back flow preventer, pressure switch, pressure gauge, emergency relief valve and pipe parts and unions while I had the water shut down. That should reduce problems and extend the life of the system considerably. The tank stands on two cinderblocks to raise the plumbing up from the floor and to make future maintenance access easier. I was able to get all of the parts at Home Depot and the people in the plumbing department were very helpful with finding the correct pieces. The tank did arrive covered in rather severe scratches that went down to the metal but there were no dents or leaks. I will use primer and touch up paint to seal the bare metal of the tank. The original well tank was outside exposed to the elements and freezing during the winter. My next project is to build a well house to close in the system before the cold weather sets in.
