The Water Worker 32 Gal. Pressurized Well Tank is constructed of deep-drawn steel and features stainless-steel waterway lining for durability. The tank's steel shell supports the water weight to ensure water never sits in loose-fitting vinyl or rubber bags that can fold, crease and wear. A polypropylene liner separates the water from the steel shell to help prevent taste or odor from being absorbed into the water.
Designed as a direct-fit replacement for the majority of installed well tank bases
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, formed liner fits the steel shell for added durability
System connection: 1 in. NPTF, threaded malleable iron elbow with stainless steel insert; connection does not include plastic that can cross-thread or crack
Sizing - count the number of water fixtures in and outside the home and multiply that # by 3; fixtures include faucets, spickets, shower heads, 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
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
32 Gal. of total volume; plain or galvanized tank equivalent of 82 Gal.
2-part water-based paint system sprayed over a durable 2-part epoxy primer provides corrosion resistance and safe paint covering
1 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
If you're dumb enough to ask this question, you probably shouldn't be trying to install this thing yourself...just sayin'
Do these tanks hold water or air my water worker 32 gallon feels like it is always empty
Asked by Kenn January 1, 2019
This is how it should be and is normal. If it is heavy and feels like it is full of water it is "waterlogged" and needs replacement. This means the inner bladder has ruptured or developed a leak which can rust out the inner liner of tank.
BTW...I have to replace mine tomorrow!
Can this tank be placed directly on the floor, or does it have to be elevated?
Asked by GERANIUM July 3, 2018
I believe it can be placed on the floor. Yet, I sat mine on a small pallet as my initial water line from the Well was off the ground about 2&1/2"s.
Do I need a booster pump with this or just the T fittings installed and the to my water line?

does this tank come with everything needed to install
Asked by headache July 17, 2015
It only comes with the tank, you need your own pipes whether you use pvc or a metal "t" , and you need a pressure gauge, and a switch, which I recommend a new one it you are going through the bother of a new tank
it installed fairly easy , its a different design than the standard tank from years past , so l had to get extra parts to make the hookup , at first l had l problem with it not filling with water , called customer service ,told them the problem and they gave me the solution , but l had to do 2-3 times for it to fill all the way , it seems that the bladder inside the tank settles and folds over on its self from storage and shipping with the pre-charge of air inside / other wise it works just fine

Ease of installation :
Ours came with the support welded incorrectly. So we had to cut a new hole in the base to run the T to the tank. I would have returned it but I needed to get water flowing as soon as possible as it was -23 C.
My previous pressure take the bladder busted in it. It lasted about 10 years hope this one lasts longer, this one comes with a 5 year warranty. Even though it's 3 gallons smaller than my old one it works great and made my pressure switch work quieter than before.
This is a great product. i hooked this tank up in a parallel set up with a 20 gallon water worker tank. The 20 gallon was great but my pump was coming on several times during a shower or doing laundry, and when the pump came on , it would only run for 30 seconds to fill the tank, now with both tanks hooked together, i can have a 15 minute shower before the pump turns on, and the pressure stays near the top for nearly ten minutes. Then the pump runs for about 2 to 3 minutes, this is more ideal and will save the pump, additionally , because of the storage, the other pump which fills the aerator tank up with well water, does not run near as much either, I did it this way because i did not have enough money to buy a bigger tank , if you have enough money, buy the 86 gallon for $345, that is a sweet deal, and there is really no down side to having a big tank. Oh also, having two tanks means that if one goes, the other keeps the system up and running, my plan is to put another 32 gallon on the house pump, and use the 20 for the well pump storage, to replace the lighter colored tank that is not good any longer, hope this helps, Good Luck!!!
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Instructions, No Leaks, Reliable
