Hi All! I'm installing my Ronco poly tanks
for my freshwater system this weekend (3 X 50 Gal.), and I just read this on Ronco's website:
"Plastic tank connections are designed to seal dry. Compounds such as sealants, pipe dopes, greases, petroleum jellies, glues or adhesives are not to be used. Normally, hand tightening will provide adequate seal. On occasion, a slight tightening with a wrench may be required. To avoid damage to seal fittings, do not apply excessive force. Do not exceed 1/4 turn after hand tightening."
I was planning on using a little Teflon thread sealant
... Has anyone installed their nylon fittings into their tanks
dry like their instructions specify? I know these fittings are NPT (tapered), but these connections are tough to get to after all is in. Thanks, Chris
