    just ordered a tap from PF to attach to my 350ltr tank going in my van.... and am goign to get some ratchet straps.

    im going to attach a hose to the tap... so i can put water in from their in to my 25ltr containers when ever i want cos i might use a trolley sometimes

    i was wondering.... when i open the tap on the bottom of my tank... will it just push the water out ? cos the taps right at the bottom and i will need to transfer it up to the barrell....

    thanks

    If i need to fill containers, i just unplug the hose from the hose reel, wind up the pump, and fill it from there. Takes a minute or 2, no more, to fill the container.

    I trust your tank is up against the bulk head? Surprised nobody has told you off yet for ratchet strapping them.......

    Be safe! :)
