well x-troll pressure tank

I have a 25gal well x-trol tank in my house as part of the well system. what is the life expectancy of the well x-troll tanks? mine is going on 16yrs, i'm sure sooner or later they wear out. thanks in advance.

Streetdude, the life of that tank depends largely on water quality. There is one easy way to check this. On the top of the tank you will see a air fitting like you would hook a tire pump to. Press that with your finger nail or something else. If you get water out of it, your tank is shot. An improper charge on your pressure tank will cause your well pump to short cycle. I hope this helps.
