My pressurised water
system is sucking air in, and I think it is due to corrosion
of the welded outlet pipe at the top of one of the water tanks
. There is not really enough good pipe left to get the hose on securely.
So I plan to seal the existing outlet and install a plastic outlet down near the bottom. Downsides I can see are:
- Risk of leaking
- Tank will not fully drain
Anything else I should consider? Should I loop the hose up to the top of the tank or will the siphon effect make that pointless?
I also plan to put in a plastic inspection
port - not looking forward to what I might find inside.
