Fresh Water Tank

We are not sure but we believe our 100gal fresh water tank has a split in it. Any ideas if it can be repaired or can it only be replaced?

Thank you!

Depends upon what is is made out of. It could be a clamp or hose. Your water supply system may consist of more than one tank. I would contact the manufacturer for information.

If it turns out to be what you "believe" it to be ("doubtable"), and it's accessible, it can be repaired by you. Just buy the appropriate super, duper, material at you friendly Hardware store.

Most anything can be securely patched with todays modern goop's.

As others have said, it will depend upon what the tank is made of and how accessible it is. There is a welding process that works with some tank materials but they are notoriously difficult to repair and since yours is 100 gallons, it is going to require a pretty sound repair.

But what I am wondering is, what makes you believe that it has split? That is not common unless it has been left full with temperatures well below freezing.

Not all of todays modern goops is free of toxins that can leach into water you plan to drink. Check the MSDA Material Safety Data Sheet on what ever you buy.

I believe my tank is fiberglass. If yours is also, most any marine service that does fiberglass boat repairs can fix it.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

What makes you say the tank is split? Can you see the split or are you just losing water and supposing that is the problem. It is possible that you have a loose hose clamp or you may be siphoning the water out of the tank.

Good luck and keep us posted!
