Tank removal and refit!

Post by neil jones » Sun Apr 10, 2016 10:25 pm

Just removed my old tanks. No sign of leaks into foam but due an updated version from Tim Duffee.
An emotional job.. but finally taken out. Tim's suggestion of steel pole into tank certainly helped to waggle and free up the tanks once most of the foam had been removed. A good vacuum needed to remove the foam to allow waggle space!

Hmm. found there had been some leaking.. interesting reaction with the foam making it very hard to cut out!
Plus new tanks have threaded fittings for pick-ups, returns and breathers and are foam filled .. 4 gallons each.

"foamed" in, glassed over and final gel/resin coat for waterproofing!
