    iv got a 500l flat tank in the van. its not really flat though at 600 high x 1000 x 900.

    the baffle is only one way which is sideways.stupid stupid junk design for a baffle. the front to back slosh is doing my head in. its like a car full of people lunging forward backwards all the time. i saw on youtube guys put playballs in the tank with holes in them. iv done 100 balls but think i may need hundreds more to have any effect.


    anyone else solved this issue.

    I guess you are talking of a plastic clear tank that is most common, if you simply rotate the tanks position through a 90 degree turn your problem is solved and the baffle is doing what it should. The baffles should run sideways across the van not front to back.

    i had it that way and was told to to rotate it by a tank fitter. the baffle is to stop sidways slosh isnt it.

    Not in my opinion. My baffles stop front back slosh. And i never notice sideways either.

    No as that would still have his baffles facing the same way. Back to front. 90 degrees is a quarter turn that will set the baffles sideways.

    My bad maths and whisky :confused:. My baffles face forwards and don't cause me much of a problem tbh.
