Tnx for the update, Chris. Im glad you were able to get it done. Great job and thank you for taking the time to post this repair step by step. Great pics !
You should patent a ‘black tank safety lanyard ‘. Just in case the next person is not as lucky as you were.

Regards,
Bob

Awsome write up and innovation in repair. Thank you for all the work it was to share this.

I liked the Dremel cutting disc paired with the sanding drum for the extra support. I never thought of that before, those disc's always break so easy.

Enjoy your leak free tank [emoticon]

It's very difficult to empty the toilet every other day, especially during camping days. Is it possible to remove the cassette from the toilet and fitting a holding tank under the van? Maybe a Plumber help to install a submersible pump to empty it.

You are talking about changing your cassette toilet into one that has a holding tank. I'm guessing that it would be hard to find the space under your van to install a holding tank of any significant size. If you found one that fit, then yes I suppose you could connect it to the toilet and then you would have a holding tank. To empty the holding tank, you would want to dump valve (likely blade valve) near the lowest point and then you would need to dump it at a regular dumping station. I don't see how having a submersible pump would be a very good option.

Excellent work. I'm glad you were able to complete it. Thank you for taking the time to detail this repair. It is highly beneficial to us. I've been in the same situation before, and we called an expert ***Link Removed***plumber service team to fix it. They did an excellent job. Thank you once more.
