CONNECTIONS

(Note: Below is a description of the STANDARD configuration. Some tanks may vary from this due to customer requirements. Photos are from a dual installation)

At one end of the tank, there are 2 SERVICE fittings.

One is a 40mm male connection which is both the inlet and outlet for the GREY water storage.

Adjacent to this, on the same end is a standard 1 inch male fitting which is both the inlet and outlet for the FRESH water.

At the other end of the tank are 2 female 1 inch fittings which serve as breathers. The one on the same side of the tank as the 40mm is for the GREY water, the other is for the FRESH water.

 

FITTING THE TANK

The tank should be fitted with the SERVICE fittings toward the OFF SIDE. That is, the side furthest from the kerb.

Fixing to the chassis should be with the use of a MINIMUM of 2 stainless steel straps, at least 50mm wide and capable of holding 150 kg per fitting point. The strap should also be fitted with a suitable rubber cushioning. Likewise, compression points to the steel chassis should be fitted with rubber strips. This also helps prevent electrolysis between the 2 dis-similar metals

Replacing existing tanks

It is common to replace an existing fresh water tank with the SAFETANK. This serves a couple of purposes.

  1. It negates the need for an extra tank.
  2. Keeps the weight where it should be.
  3. Provides a new “clean” fresh water tank

As the SAFETANK approximates the size of common 84lt plastic tanks, it is usually a simple procedure to swap over the tanks, using the existing mountings and fittings (if suitable).
