Leak from fibrewound tank


Hello,

I had a fibrewound tank installed about 1.5-2 years ago, it started leaking underneath in the last couple of days. Looking at the manual I can find online:
Manual its leaking around the bottom flange. Not the elbow but the whole flange.

The second part is that the bottom flange is not centered in the opening. I'm not sure how to go about getting this put back in and figure out if I need a new bladder or not.

Its a Pro-Source Plus PSP-FW35-10-01 I think the last two numbers there are correct the 0's could be 8's the ink is smudged.

Any suggestions on what to do? Do I start with a bladder and then reseat the bottom some how?

Thanks

Mike

You say that you had this installed. If so contact the installer because the manual shows that there is a 5 yr warr and if you try to fix this the installer may void the warranty

Either contact the supplier from where the tank was purchased and if you don't know where it was purchased then contact the manufacture

Leak from fibrewound tank


Got it replaced thanks. Was hoping the method by which it was obtained (legally but the cheaper method ya know, from a guy that knows a guy type thing) wasn't going to mess with warranty but wasn't sure. So was looking to be prepared and buy the right parts on friday when the plumbing places were open. Thankfully didn't have to.

When I got it the guy said that was the third one in a week they've replaced, all purchased within a short time of each other a year and a half or so ago. When looking at the bottom (and top for that matter) they revamped them both significantly.
