water tank

  1. D

    Sold Now sold - Underslung 69 litre water tank. As new £100

    A change of build plans means this is no longer needed. I have already wrapped the tank in bubble insulation and foil tape to help insulate from both the heat and cold. As new as not been fitted or used, comes with the fixing brackets and outlets. Has the flush mounting access / drain cover on...

    Fresh-Water pump help?

    We have a pump in our brand new t6, that doesn’t work, it keeps dribbling water out of the blue bit at the top, and a jubilee clip isn’t keeping water from doing so. My question is can someone else who has a similar set up show me what is wrong with this and what we could potentially do to fix...

    P trap for sink?

    What do people do for a trap on the sink? We’ve got the obligatory smev 9222 which will go to a cak tank 205 with 20mm input connection. Looking on the usual sites there doesn’t appear to be any traps ? Is it usual to just run the pipe straight into the tank without a trap at all? Won’t you get...

    Converting Adblue tank to Water

    After having my Adblue coded out it's got me to thinking whether the redundant Adblue tank would make a good onboard hot water tank? Cleaned out of course! Could even be fitted with a submerged heating element that can produced hot water whilst the engine in running. Filler cap is already in...

    One way lid for water tank, is there such a thing?

    I'm sure there is an obvious solution to this but I have a 30l water tank which is connected to an external shurflo pump. What I'm looking for is a one way lid so that it let's air in when the pump is working but doesn't let water out when driving around. At the moment I'm having to unscrew the...

    Simple cold water system without a micro-switch tap

    I could do with a bit of reassurance in my proposed water system. I require a cold water supply to a sink. We use bottled water for drinking and cooking. We use washing facilities if on a site so only need occasional on board cold water. I have a 24 litre wheelarch tank ( not the best...

    Water waste on lowered van

    Hi peeps - I've never used my sink but since the rules for 12th April onwards require us to be self contained I think I'm going to have to pour stuff down it. The trouble is I only have 15cm of clearance under the van to put something to collect the liquids that come through. I just wondered if...

    Waste sink water and the Chunnel?

    Sorry for the strange question but has anyone heard that if you dump your waste sink water 'straight out the van' you may not be allowed onto the channel tunnel due to the risk of dumping this into the shuttle. I was going to get my convertor to have the waste dumped straight out and avoid...

    Wheelarch tank

    I am just about to order a 24 litre wheelarch tank but thought that I would ask if anyone else has fitted one to see if there are any snags that I haven't considered before I press the button. The bit that rests on the floor is 180 mm and it looks like it could be quite a tight fit between the...

    Hi all. My first post here on the forum so hello everybody but please be kind as I'll probably be asking some pretty stupid questions in the near future! Anyway, I'll soon be on the lookout for a T30 or T32 LWB panel or kombi for a camper conversion. I've had a T25 for over ten years so feel...
