    I picked up a 86gal pressure tank for my well pump and i'm looking to install it this weekend.

    They only had Stainless steel tee in stock, but pressure relief valve, drain, pressure gauge and nipple for pressure switch are all brass. Is there a problem mixing these?

    No. Stainless and brass mix well. Stainless and stainless can stick together sometimes. "Galling".
