Re: How to clean pipes ?

In the Navy, during the Vietnam war, when in Subic Bay we use to get our pipes cleaned here.

Re: How to clean pipes ?

My tank is 14 years old now, both it and the hoses were replaced in 02.
Guess I need to find a replacement tank, a good plastic one would make more sense I would think, any chance in finding one that will fit an IP, or are they custom made?

Ronco Plastics - Marine Water Tanks, RV Water Tank, Auto Detail Tanks, Water Tanks

Standard sizes, they'll put fittings in if you want. All polyethylene. There are places that'll make you a custom one but they're really pricey.

polyethylene is the way to go. Catalina installed polyethylene tanks in my boat in 1980. All still good, no smell from the holding tank. 36 years is a pretty good lifespan.

Re: How to clean pipes ?

I second the Ronco recommendation...they make TOP quality water and waste tanks for a very reasonable price and has more than 400 shapes and sizes, over 100 of which are non-rectangular (which means you might be able to fit a larger one in the same space), and they install fittings in the sizes and locations specified by the customer when they make the tank. This is the link to their marine tanks: Ronco Plastics Marine Catalog

Another + for the Ronco tanks.
