Holding tank or Fuel for Jeanneau

Next time you install a large plastic tank be sure that ALL connections to the tank are so designed and arranged so that stress cannot be transmitted through such joints. This can be accomplished by using ''stress isolators'' such as ''bellows'' connections, short runs of corrugated piping, etc. These are available through industrial and plumbing supply sources.
