If it is made my Amtrol who makes Well-X-Trol, the quality is as good as you can get. I donít care for the AO Smith. Limiting the number of times the pump cycles on and off is the key to making the tank and everything else last longer. As a new well owner, you need to study up on what causes cycling. Just do a search here for "pump cycling" and you will have plenty to choose from.
