    Side or bottom plumbing question

    I have a 20 year old Teel 4P838, 85 gal precharged water tank that needs to be replaced.
    I can fit a tank up to 55" high in the space.
    This tank has the plumbing connection on the bottom.
    All the high quality bottom connected 80-85 gallon tanks I have found are too tall.
    I have found some tanks that are the size I need with a “side” plumbing connection.
    Is there any reason I should avoid the side plumbing version, and stick with a bottom connected tank?

    I should point out that this Teel tank still works, but I am guessing after 20 years it should be replaced as Preventative Maintenance.
