    Default Is bigger better in my overflow tank?

    I'm replacing my old 80 gal galvanized tank for my submersible pump well system. I'm thinking to buy the biggest welXtrol tank I can afford. My houselhold needs are small, with only 3 adults living in my home. But I water a little less than 2 acres using hoses s and sprinklers, which I do not run at maximum effiicency to keep my pump from cycling. I plan to intall an irrigation system in the future, and possibly irrigate most of my 5 acres, but I plan to have my well, pump etc analyzed to plan an appropriate system at that time.

    Other than spending unnecssary dollars up front on a tank bigger than I might need, what are the drawbacks to having a very large tank?
