Fresh Water Tank Questions

Hello all I am replacing the plumbing in my 63 Safari, The PO has removed the water tank which I understand was a pressurized system. I am looking for replacement tank, but I am putting in a pump and a "conventional" plumbing system. Anyone know the proper size tank that would work as a replacement, and where to get one???? Thanks alot ,

The original 30 gallon tank that Airstream used from 64 to 68 works well.

fresh water tank replacement source

Call Inca plastics and get it right from the source. All they make is rotomold tanks.
They supplied Airstream for years and have replacements. I believe a 30 gal[their replacement size is 29 gals I think] is around 135 bucks.

Their number is: (909)923-3235

pump model

I too am going to install (shortly) a freshwater tank for my silver buddy (1967 Sovereign). Do any of you have reccomendations for a water pump? Thanks--

Water tanks

You can also get tanks from Accu-tankAccuTank RV water tanks
I just got a greywater tank from them and it looks good. They will add fittings wherever you want. Similar to Inca. If Inca doesn't have the size you want (they have hundreds) try Accu-tank. Located in N. California.

Hello JP,

There are a few variable-speed water pumps out now that do not require accumulator tanks to deliver smooth water flow. These also do not cycle as often, and can be extremely quiet.
