Good Morning, we just moved into a home that has well water. I do not know a lot about a well system. The home has a 32 gal pressure tank that is pretty old and was going to replace it with a 86 gallon from a big box store.

Do I need to be concerned that the actual well can fill up a larger pressure tank? Do I need to do anything with the well to accommodate a larger pressure tank?

Any tips from well owners would be great.

Thanks and have a great day!

I was reading that a larger tank would cycle less on the well which would help with longevity. Also, the home was used as a vacation home and was only occupied by 2 people and we have 6 so the usage would be much more.

Thank you for the link.
