    Eviestevie did you get this sorted and if so what did you use? I have to install a tap too at the bottom of the tank that I can't reach but i'm unsure of exactly what to get and I didn't want to start a new thread and bore everyone with how unhandy I am.

    No mate still tryin figure this out and drilling a hole in the tank is a bit daunting lol
    ive looked everywhere but seems they all require a fixing from the inside to which if your like me is impossible to reach.
    One idea I had was to maybe look into maybe a double tap of the existing hole which currently feeds my pump!
    I gunna head to plumb center tmoz see if there is anything to make a double tap adapter
    I'll keep you posted mate

    Depends what tank size you are after but there are plenty of used baffle tanks on fleebay with tapes already fitted that come up from time to time which can go really cheap to save messing about with that one.
