Water logged well tank

rog2e Member Posts: 16
I replaced my well tank a couple months ago but I still have the old tank in the basement. It is too heavy to lift out. I already bled all the air that would come out of the air valve. Can I just drill a hole in the side to get the water out? Any tips? This is an old 20 gal. Amtrol tank. Thanks!

    That is the easiest way to get it to drain, as long as you have a place for the water to go. You might have to drill a hole near the top and another near the bottom depending on where the water is stuck at. It might all be above the bladder, and not be able to get out through the drain hole.
