    Default 275 Gal plastic tote tank outlet fitting

    Any ideas on how to reduce or adapt to the outlet valve that come on these tote tanks? Mine has a 2 inch ball valve on it and need to reduce the size. I plan on using it as my head tank.

    Hello if its like the 4 i have i went and got a 2" cam lock fitting then got a reducing bushing to go inside that. I went from 2" to 1 1/4" on my head tanks and from 2" to 3/4" for my takes out in the field so i could hook a garden hose to drain them into my truck tank. Hope that helps i have one ss cam lock and one plastic cam lock and both work great no leaks. (cpmaple)
