Description for Amtrol WX-251

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.

PLEASE NOTE: The product weighs 92 lbs. and may require the use of a
lift gate.
If you do require a lift gate at your delivery, you'll have the option to add this FREE of charge when you checkout.

              Shipping took 5 days longer than estimated. I installed the tank and cross-tee three times and had a leak each time where the cross-tee joined the tank. I called a plumber then and he could find no reason for the leak, but used some plumbers tape (teflon with impregnated pipe dope) and that sealed the joint.

                    My tank was used for household and watering a acre of grass. I ordered a new one just like it today. The bladder lasted 26 years!
                    I have no complaints at all. Great tank you just can't beat it.

                          Went online and looked at their descriptions and information and it helped me choose the right tank. Ordered it and it was delivered correctly. Great Job.

                                Needed a new pressure tank as the old one was undersized and failing. This is the third tank I've had and once installed has proved worth the cost above other brands sold in local retailers. Excellent price here at Pex too

                                    The WX-251 is precharged to 38 psi. The tank should be drained before adjustment.

                                    The acceptance factor indicates the amount of water stored in the tank at a given range (i.e. 40 to 60 psi). It is used in sizing a well tank.
