Notice - Our entire stock of Flexcon H2Pro, Well-X-Trol and Flexcon Challenger tanks all contain Diaphragms now instead of "bladders" for longer service life.
Well-X-Trol WX tanks sit on a full skirt to distribute weight evenly, have a stainless steel inlet connection, and extra thick diaphragm. They do not sit on 3 prongs with a plastic (easily split) inlet fitting as do discount store grade tanks.
Lubee's evaluation? The Well-X-Trol pressure tanks are the top-of-the-line, the best tank we sell, the best tank on the market, and that is reflected by the 7 year warranty, higher maximum pressure rating, heavier gauge steel, and thicker diaphragm. Plain and simple, the Well-X-Trol tanks will perform problem-free, last longer, cost a little more, but have a 7 year warranty because they are built better, built rugged, built to last. We offer several makes of good tanks, but Well-X-Trol is the best.
