It's a rubber grommet. You just cut or drill the correct size hole anywhere on the top of the tank and "muscle" the bottom flange of the grommet through the hole. I bought mine HERE, but I'm sure you could get them from most anyone that sells these tanks. They are available to fit 1 1/2", 2" and 3" pipe. They run between $5-$10.

I sure don't see why not... give the folks at PPL a call. They were very helpful when I ordered my tanks.

Ronco will make any tank with fittings where ever you want them at a very reasonable price. I had two holding tanks made to fit under the side decks of my trawler. I sent them a sketch, they sent me back a price with the sketch and they were perfect. RV Water Holding and Water Tanks - Ronco Plastics
They may also have a stock tank that fits your needs in their online catalog.

I too, have used tanks by Ronco Plastics. They are very good quality, and can be made in just about any shape and size imaginable. Fittings of whatever size and placement you require.Have been to the factory, it's pretty impressive to see the moulding machines at work.

Michele; from one tail wheel pilot to another-
My urologist says ther should not be a problem here,the tank will outlast me if flushed regularly.
I could coat it with some epoxy, or better yet I would just build a new tank of carbon. I was merely offering up idea's to another member.
Maybe your obgyn can shed some light on female fluids and how they attack aluminum. I'm not worried in the least.
But then again that coming from someone with a non-corrosive personality.
