Hi Anthony,
Did a search for 'water bladder' no listing under that title or in the body??? Not under 'thingy' either !!!

Have decided to get one of those super duper bladders that you discussed before. Gocs have got one but are off air at present ...so I have to pester you instead. (Full Bladder Grin!!!)

Can you please advise details of same and where you got it from.

Ciao
Helen

should do the trick

I cut off the larger filler inlet and capped it with a poly cap so all filling and draining is done through the small outlet.

You could get a purpose made one from ARB.
Then you would be able to have one in your vechicle as well.

G'day Helen,

I have the same as Ernie ...dont forget to mention 10% discount for Boggers if you get it from Glascraft Marine in Brisbane. Cost was about $125 for the 150 litre one ?

I did the same with the large outlet ...sealed it with a 1-1/2 inch poly cap. Just cut the barb bit of the large outlet so you can get the poly cap on ....

I used a hacksaw with a fine blade and filed the area a bit and deburred the edges ..poly cap went straight on .... it fills and drains well from the small barb as Ernie said ...

Macka,

The ARB ones are mainly meant for placing in the inner guards etc ??? The ones I saw anyway .... ??? These Turtle Pak bladders we have are really strong stuff ...it then has a truck tarp woven cover over that again ..(Tautliner).

Turtle Pak has bladders approved for Sewage (black tanks) and diesel fuel ...

Regards
Anthony

Helen if you have a sucker hose you can suck straight from the portable tank to the pump. I carry it on the roof rack and connect the sucker hose straight to it without the need to fill the water tanks. Depends on the situation at the time and this method is another option. I've never tried it but you should be able to gravity fill the onboard tanks from the portable on the roof rack without the need of a pump. Probably a bit slow but who cares anyway if it takes another bottle of red to do it hey?????
cheers
Ernie
