    Im going to set it up for 2 men. Thinking about putting my tank in a cage too

    Im really going to need help on the plumbing side and some of the fittings Ill need.

    First thing is going to be a tap. I need a new one Im currently using a tap from bandq yeah the garden ones lol.

    I couldnt get the size of it from there website. Soo Im guessing this tap would fit in my tank?

    http://www.tanksdirectuk.co.uk/taps_&_valves/tap_kit_4_-_(1%22_outlet)

    Is that right? If not could someone point me in the right direction to one that wil fit and also maybe a cheaper one.


    Now thats out they way... Metal fittings Im not a fan of plastic one so would really be looking at changing them al the metal ones.

    As for the plumbing side am I right in thinking I could have to pumps working from the one tap? I seen some others do it before? Anyway IF thats the case. Ill presume I need a ''T'' splitter where will I get one of those about?

    I" to 3/4" reducer for the tank outlet - get a 3/4 ball valve - you can get a 3/4 all round Y piece then 2 hoze connectors ( same as garden tap ) to clip the 2 hoses onto.. Would you want to be able to turn them off separately or both together? As I have seen Y pieces that have 2 taps on them..

    Go to your local plumbing centre they prob be cheapest

    use plastic fittings if you can aswell, i learn the hard way. metal stays colder longer and freezes up faster.

    I went to screw fix and got the reducer and tap for about £6. Hope you've got one near you.

    Yeah but that'll stick out loads won't it? My tank is a pretty snug fit as it is, if I fitted that as well I don't think it would fit. I went for a normal tap for because of the angle advantages.
