    I need to replace a 14 gallon RO tank. Which tanks are best to get long life from it.

    There are some from RO Mate that if you are looking for long life that would work. Also with the RO Mate can have the main part replaced if needed down the line.
    Did that 15 years ago at a company that I was working for.. 20 minutes and 95.00 later that tank was fixed and back on line again.

    RO Mate is not cheap, but very long lasting.
    or look for a plastic pressure tank and not the metal tank.

    thanks Akpsdvan, do the RO Mate tanks use a better quality bladder? does it make a difference for plastic/fiberglass better than metal if the water is only in the bladder? Thanks for any insight anbody has in this matter

    Metal if Moisture is on the out side will find any crack in the paint over time and start the rust... the metal tank has a rubber disc that is for the most part welded in to the metal,, thus will get holes in that part and let water in to the air part of the tank.

    When the ro mate or well mate pressure tank needs the replacement of the air cell it is simple and easy..
