Grey Water Tank Repair - New Valve - plastic weld

Hey all,

So just last week I replaced the check valve in my pump and got that all good and running, and a tire debris on the 110 North took out my grey water valve as well as a small chunk of the tank. Looks like with a new valve and some abs and epoxy it can be patched up. The only problem is where to find a valve. I had a 1" garden house male end on the last one so I could put a house on it at RV parks.

Thanks!! I think I must have reduced it last time with some pvc bits it was years ago, the first one was also taken out by road debris. This is probably not in the best spot.

If you can find it use this. Auveco Rigid Set. It's an awesome epoxy, which a big RV dealer near me advised for a tank repair I did years ago.

What is the tank made from? Polyethylene is tough to "glue", but welds (melts) beautifully. When the epoxy says plastics are okay that likely doesn't cover PE. Welding PE is easy. A soldering iron and a piece of PE rod work great. That said I would try the epoxy first... just scuff up the edges thoroughly.

West Systems now make a 'plastic' epoxy. I think it works on pretty much everything. Scuffing/sanding first and running a propane flame over the plastic before gluing covers most plastics if you can only get regular epoxy.
