    3270 New Flexible Tank-gctid807723

    My new 200 liter expandable tank installed. Built a bit of framing around it not attached otherwise. Don't know what to do with the two straps.

    I like it. Is that for extra range or a replacement for a leaky tank? Will you even need to strap it? Looks very secure.

      I believe that's the water tank under the bed. And at 200 liters, I think that would give you half the shower range of the standard 100 gallon aluminum tank that was there.

        That's the replacement for the 75 gallon Al that was pitted at the rear. Seems to be quite common with the outlet in front.

            Yes, nice job. You'll find once full it will "round" in shape. I never had a problem with it moving but the framing is a good idea. I cut a 7" strip off the plywood cover that I can easily lift off to gauge water level. You may have already discovered you need to screw the cover down before you fill it.

              What did you do with the two straps? Did you add those or did they come with the tank? I believe they are there so the tank doesn't get to far out of shape or possibly rupture if filled beyond its limits.?

                I didn't do anything with mine but you could use them to secure the bladder from rolling side to side I suppose.

                  I put that "bladder" in my 32 a few years ago. I did fasten it down with the straps. I put in with the outlet to the aft thinking I would have a better chance of getting all (most?) of the water out come winter. I put a 2 inch piece of foam insulation board under neath to have a space for the hose to the pump. I also did the whole in the aft end plywood to judge the amount of water in the bladder. And yes, you must screw the plywood down as it will lift when full.
