I am planning out the replacement of my slowly failing well pressure tank. My well water fluctuates in PH between 4.5 and 5.5. All of the brass fittings I have ever tried to use in my plumbing efforts fail in a few years. Currently everything in my house is CPVC except a small section of galvanized pipe connecting the current tank to the black PE well pipe, but I will replace the galvanized stuff because its rusted pretty badly too.

So what is the correct way to plumb in the pressure tank given the low PH water? Can I use CPVC for everything, including all of the pump pressure gauges, relief gauge and drain spigot mounting locations?

I also see there are stainless steel options, but I am reading its hard to get that to be leak free (stainless is tough stuff to tighten up properly?). I would be interested in hearing peoples opinions who have installed stainless tank tees.
