Description for Amtrol WX-255

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 103 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.

                                Great product, just make sure that you can go around the base. You can not go underneath it like a tank with legs. Time will tell if it lasts longer than other bladder types-the type of construction suggest that it will.

                                I had an 85 gallon Amtrol well pressure tank for 30 years. While re-plumbing my pumphouse, I broke the outlet pipe weld from the tank. After 30 years, the 1 1/4" pipe just took too much force to remove, even with back-up wrenches. I was extremely disappointed, and went online to research replacement tanks. Prices had sure gone up in 30 years, but the best reviews went to the Amtrol tank, so I decided to replace it with the 81 gallon model, slightly smaller, but completely adequate for my needs and more than $ 100 cheaper.

                                The old tank was still in perfect shape after 30 years, and even with the outlet pipe broken off the tank, the exposed bladder was still holding its pressure for the three weeks until I took the tank to the landfill.

                                When I received the new tank, I saw some minor design improvements over the old tank: a flanged support base, giving the tank more stability, and a better top-side location for the air fill valve. Otherwise it looked the same as the old tank, and I expect I will get at least 30 years service from the new tank, unless I make the same mistake again.

                                The WELL-X-TROL Well Tank we bought from Pex Supply is of excellent quality. We replaced our original smaller WELL-X-TROL tank with this larger one and went from a 20-40 PSI to a 40-60 PSI pressure switch. Now we have great water pressure and more time between cycles. Pex delivery time was really good and by a courteous trucking company. I highly recommend PEX Supply.

                                This is one of those necessary items one needs to replace immediately. I saw the bladder going in the old tank and placed the order. Pex.Supply.com delivered the tank and Fit Kit, at a very competitive price, as scheduled, and I did the install. With free shipping and no tax I paid less then if I purchased it at the local plumbing supply, which by the way would not match the price. Like Arnold said, "I'll be back!"

                                this tank replaced a 20 gallon well tank made by Flowtec which lasted only 1 year beyond the warranty. This new tank does not transmit the pump noise throughout the house as did the old one. I recommend a larger tank to anyone buying a replacement tank, since the pump cycles less as well as providing more capacity. Also do yourself a big favor and install a drain valve if your system does not already has one installed to avoid having water all over the basement.

                                The Well-X-Trol pressurized water tanks that you supplied me are the best I have ever used. In one hour we had the old tanks out and the new ones in. Perfect water pressure in the house and garden.

                                  I understand some tanks contain bladders with a horizontal seam. In time these type of bladder cracks from expansion and contraction. Do your tanks contain seamless bladders?
