The new tanks arrived…

The new black and grey tank showed up while I was hammering on the door 🙂

They came by Fedx merely packaged in bubble wrap.  Here is the slightly enlarged from original black tank.


They look pretty sturdy and built to my specs, except one thing…  On the grey tank, I specified the drain to be 1/8″ from the bottom edge.  It showed up as 5/8″  Which might not seem like much but if you consider every 1/8″ below the drain oulet that cannot come out is around 1 gallon.  So now my 27 gallon tank has turned into a 22 gallon.


From the looks of it, the way the drain outlets are installed, it probably cannot be put on any lower.  So, I’ll have to live with it.  If I just had the drain outlet come out the bottom, the drain line would have been below the belly pan and I don’t want that.

Here is the rest of the grey tank.


Well, thats all I had time for today.  Spent a couple of hours beating the door in vain.  Need a sure fire solution!  My time is running out.  Daylight savings is going away 🙁
