Fresh Water Tanks

Postby newendeavor » Wed Jul 06, 2016 9:53 am

My tanks have started leaking maybe due to City Water chemicals and the PO use of small amounts of Clorox. I've checked for Bonding corrosion. Do any of the archives have the original shop Drawings ? What's the current opinion on Aluminum vs Poly plastics ? These tanks are 75 gal and 40x21x21".

I have found mine are starting to leak. What did you end up doing to fix/replace them?

Do any of you guys have your Water Tanks electrically Bonded together and are they Bonded to the Engine ?
I notice my Fuel Tanks are Bonded together and the Sending Unit is "above Ground". The Sending Unit on the Water Tank is also "above Ground"
