A Simple Water Tank Manifold
Three water tanks having a total capacity of 104 gallons were included in the original design of s/v Rainy Days. The three rotationally molded tanks were made by Kracor. (They were constructed from LLDPE and they can be weld repaired using LLDPE rods.)
|The removable floor panel for the bilge access was the perfect location for |
the fresh water manifold--no more lifting settee cushions for access to the valves.
|This is the bottom view of the manifold. All the hoses were changed to |
conventional vinyl water hoses. Judging by the brown stains
on the hoses, it's time to change them again!
|A close up view of the bottom reveals the pipe spool connecting the two 3-way valves.|
Right now I have a leak in my port water tank. When I remove the plastic tank for repair or replacement, I intend to change out all the old fresh water hoses with new ones. Stay tuned for this future project...
