    How many panels do you have and what model pump? You need to check how much pressure that set-up can make. Most of the solar pumps are not designed for very much pressure.

    I am very familiar with the In-Well tank. I have the original patent on it. In-Well Technologies recently sold to Flexcon Industries. In-Well did have some bladder and Schrader valve problems when they first came out. As long as the bladder and Schrader are good, the In-Well type tanks works good. And I am pretty sure Flexcon can make a good bladder and Schrader.

    They only hold about Ĺ of a gallon of water. This makes this tank completely unusable by itself. But with a CSV attached to the inlet side of the tank is works very well, because with a CSV, you donít need a very large tank.

    A lot of people use them in remote locations where the freeze line is deep and a well house in not feasible. For cow water and irrigation the In-Well and CSV combination works very well. For a house system I would add additional tank with a gallon of drawdown somewhere in the house.
