April 8, 2007moose-66,
If you'll look closely, you'll see that mine is a vertical tank also, however, the main reason for doing mine is the cheap drain they installed. It was just a simple screw valve, no T, that was extremely hard to turn after draining the tank. It often required a slight nudge using pliers just to break it loose.
Thanks for the compliment!
April 8, 2007Looks good,your reason for changing it out was the same as mine,it's much easier to do it after each use now!!!
April 26, 20092 years later and mine is still going strong. No leaks and I know that the steel tank is much happier now not having water collect in the bottom of it.
July 17, 2009Great idea! now I've got to do mine, i'm tired of their cheap azz drain!
July 17, 2009Old thread but good one. Funny thing, I bought my new one about 6 months ago, a month after I had it the friggin drain would not seal. I pulled it out to see it was completely shot.
So, I brought home from work a few pieces of SS nipples, and a SS ball valve and WALLA, a nice new drain that actually works when needed!
Getting there....email me with issue`s @ tippy at ew3s dot com
