    I've got a flat 350litre tank with large circular cap for filling, and i currently remove it and put hose in to filI.

    I wondered if I cut a small hole in cap, attached a hozelock fitting to it and its counter-part on my filling hose to make a 'quick-release' type attachment for filling, wether it would effect pressure in my tank or cause any other problems?

    Lol. My advice is use a plastic washer on top and underneath use a rubber washer.

    Unscrew the lid slightly if you do it.. I fitted a bit to the lid to fill and tank went up like a balloon! Lol

    Inlet One is for filling.
    Inlet Two is for my bilge pump (so i can fill 25L drums in 30 seconds or less)
    Blue filter is an air vent.

    Last hole will be for a waterproof electrical connector for 12v bilge pump.

    I have used elbows so i can basically adjust the angles.
