H2ow Pressure tank

We have a home with a H20w Pressure tank, we have no problem except do they wear out? We have good pressure, an in well pump, just need to replace the filtration system, due to water smelling bad a week after we change the filter in current system. this system is about 30 years old.

H2ow Pressure tank

Yes they do go bad. is it a pressure or storage? pressure have an internal bladder that over time fails. Storage fiberglass tanks very rare will last a life time. Storage galvanized limited life span.
