Installing Tamco® Tank Fittings in your Tamco® Tank

Tamco® Tank Fitting Installation Guidelines

1. Using a hole saw drill the appropriate size hole for your fitting in the desired location on your tank.

Note:  Be careful not to drill your hole too close to a corner or the rounded bottom edge of tank preventing you from being able to insert the fitting through the hole.
2. Deburr edge of hole on both sides to provide a smooth surface for gasket to properly seal against.
Note:  DO NOT deburr too much material around opening – only remove lip and any shavings from saw cut; do not carve out extra material.
3. Place one of the gaskets onto the fitting.
4. Reach inside the tanks and insert the fitting through the hole. Threaded end should be sticking outside the tank and flanged end and gasket should be inside of the tank.
5. Place second gasket on the threads that are sticking out of tank.
Note: If your fitting only comes with one gasket it should be on the inside of the tank.
6. Thread on the nut. Nut should be hand tight, plus a 1/2 turn.
Note: Do not over tighten. Over tightening will distort the gasket resulting in a leak.
