RE: 1991 western wilderness water tank

Bottom line, joe is right. I don’t know about polypropylene but I have installed or attempted repair on 25-30 polyethylene tanks . Repair is successfully completed thru plastic welding. Harbor freight sells a “pos” tool. Hobie kayaks has a good(read expensive) tool. The problem is that you have to melt the plastic for it to bond, very dangerous because you might melt too much then you end up with a gap. Good to have a spare piece of polyethylene. Repairing modern rotomolded kayaks the same. As far as installing an access port, it will work as long as you don’t over pressurize the tank, such as filling until full. One of the great advantages of polyethylene is nothing sticks to it well, including sealant. You still face the problem of repair if you take this route. When I was in business I ordered tanks from Ronco ( Ron’s company), on the west cost I believe. Back then they made many tanks of different shapes and sizes with no holes. I would call and order a tank and specify hole size and location and they would spin/melt a fitting in where I wanted. Hope this helps.
