Description for Amtrol WX-250

WELL-X-TROL® redefined the industry in 1963 as the first pre-pressurized diaphragm well tank. Today, Well-X-Trol Professional series tanks continue to deliver unparalleled performance and longevity, making them the most recognized brand on the market. With its sealed air charge and unique water chamber design, Well-X-Trol remains the choice of professionals.

WELL-X-TROL Professional tanks were the first to meet all industry standards for quality and safety. The butyl diaphragm in all models meets EPA requirements for potable water as defined in the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1986. The entire tank which includes the virgin polypropylene liner, butyl diaphragm, and acceptance fittings for a 100% corrosion resistant water reservoir is listed by NSF International Standard 61.

Exclusive butyl diaphragm, along with the 100% corrosion-proof virgin polypropylene liner, are secured by a positive hoop ring seal for added strength and reliability. This totally integrated system outperforms other types of water chamber designs. The plated steel air valve is welded rather than threaded to prevent loss of air pressure. The finest quality, custom mill steel is used in the deep drawn dome for extra strength while keeping tank weight to a minimum.

Features:

  • High-strength steel shell
  • Virgin polypropylene inner liner will not crack, chip, flake or peel
  • Thick butyl rubber diaphragm offers the lowest permeability of any material used today and will not support bacterial growth
  • Heavy duty butyl diaphragm is the thickest in the industry and features seamless construction for uniform strength and flexibility. It conforms exactly to the shell configuration without stretching, creasing, or forming bubbles or corners that could trap water or sediment. Butyl is the best known elastomer to prevent air loss.
  • Diaphragm design will not collapse or tear like bladder designs
  • Steel system connection withstands aggressive water
  • Welded air valve is permanently attached rather than mechanically threaded to prevent loss of air pressure and to minimize stress on the well's pump system. It also carries a tamper-evident warning label.
  • Deep-drawn steel domes offer twice the strength of rolled steel while minimizing weight.
  • Unique positive hoop ring seal secures diaphragm and liner for added strength and reliability.
  • Polypropylene liner provides a 100% corrosion resistant, non-metallic rigid water reservoir that is listed by NSF® International Standard 61.
  • Exclusive welding process eliminates interior rough spots and sharp edges that can damage the diaphragm and liner.
  • Each finished tank is pressure tested for safety.
  • Each finished tank is pre-pressurized to the most common pump cut-in pressure.
  • Exterior appliance-like finish looks attractive while protecting the tank from the elements.

        High-Quality Pressure Tank

        You can tell the quality of this tank when you take it out of the box and it is totally obvious as you install it that you've bought a heavy-duty pressure tank! Commercial grade.

        Amtrol WX-250 pressure tank arrived damaged in two places. I called Pex Supply and they were very helpfull. I could return it and they would send another tank. Problem is that I wouldn't have water while waiting for a replacement . The tank was installed and works well, it just looks kind of rough. I called Amtrol before it was installed and they said they would still warrant it. I guess that will have to do.

              Durable, reliable. Installed many in my young days, and now I am a customer for first time for my own home. I now have city water pressure on a well. Pays to go with 44 gallon than a 20 gallon. Easier on the pump. Item shipped and arrived in good timeframe.

                    I just installed it, but it has a good rep, so hopefully it will perform as said. As far as shipping, the bottom stand was badley bent, which I hamered back,and it had a dent on the side. I read reviews for ths product and it said people had the same problem. The supplier should better insulate the product to protect it from shipping.

                                Ordered the Amtrol WX-250 from Supply House. I think Amtrol is the best on the market. I wanted the latest one made, since it has the antimicrobial silver impregnated liner. The tank I received was manufactured 8 days before the day I ordered it! Supply House was very helpful and fast shipping. Thank you!

It arrived slightly damaged being shipped via UPS but the customer service was exceptional in rectifying the situation! I was extremely pleased on how i was treated as a valued customer instead of just a sale. Thanks!

                                                        Despite the good quality for this product, the packaging for shipment has a GREAT deal to be desired. A cylindrical item can not be expected to arrive safely across the country, unless extensive measures to secure the item, inside a square box. The quality of the cardboard was too thin to handle the stress from movement by equipment and/or personnel. Additionally, there was no internal packaging devices used to prevent damage to the finish or tank due to movement.

The tank appears to be high quality and works as it should. Of course UPS damaged it as usual, a dent on the top and the box ripped wide open. The dent should not affect the performance and I didn't have time return it as my tank was shot. Supply House has lightning fast shipping I will buy from them in the future.

                                                                      Q:

                                                                      I am looking at getting a Well-X-Trol 44gal tank and would like to know what the differences between the tanks are? I can get a 'regular tank', the 'Pro Access' tank or a tank with the 'DuraBase', can someone explain what the differences are?

This can make it possible for installation of a shorter tank tee. Durabase models include a Durabase stand (see part DURABASE-22). The stand elevates the tank, which can be helpful in flood-prone basements.
