How do you glue ABS fitting to ABS tank?

Adding a grey water tank to a 64' Safari. The tank I ordered came with the outlet but no inlet or vent fittings. How exactly do you glue the fittings? Do you use cleaner then the ABS glue?

Yep. Just glue-up like any ABS with solvent-type glue.

Wow, Thanks Mike... I feel for once I did something to help others rather than asking for help!

Since I posted that over in my thread, I found this article that is pretty good... its for repairing motorcycle fairings, but it has a lot of good info.

Now, anyone wanna tell me how to add/delete fitting from a poly tank?
LOL!

If I remember correctly polyethylene is usually welded with a hot air gun. Leister is the make of gun I have and there are attachments available to use a poly welding rod to fill the joint.

Practice

The best way is to weld the fittings in. It's a bit like oxy-acetylene welding with a hot air torch and plastic rod. If you're not familiar with this type of welding, I suggest you practice on some scrap first, there is a touch to it.

How to take this apart

Have to remove the waste lines from the holding tanks in the back of AS. Are these connections glued to the tanks or will they just (hopefully) slide off? If they are glued, how to I remove them? Thanks. Jack

Jack,

think those fittings and pipes are glued. try hot air gun to loosen. no telling what type of glue they used in 78. you might want to consider cutting lines and then just using a slip joint to reattach if you cannot get pipes loose.
Cheers, Rob
