    Tank connector problem

    I may be being stupid, but I can't find a pressure pipe imperial 1" solvent weld flange tank connector anywhere.

    It's just for an overflow, through a liner and then concrete block. Liner is TPO and is anchored in place , so i don't have much room, so I just want a standard flanged tank connector, but I just can't find them.

    I don't want to drill bigger holes, as one, it will be difficult, and two, there will be a lot sharp bits concrete falling behind liner. Liner is TPO and is anchored in place.

    Is there another method for 1" pipes to be sealed around a liner?

    I can't believe something that should be simple is being so difficult, there must be a simple solution.

    Solution: don't use my existing pressure pipe, just get 32mm waste pipe and fittings

    Try this link (if it works). If not just google plasticpipeshop.
    They have helped me out in the past.

    I have looked on that site, they don't have any typical flanged tank connectors, they do have stub flanges and backplates, but I don't think they are appropriate.

    Try pond planet bud, if there's nothing on the website it's definitely worth giving them a ring

    A good swimming pool supplier will be able to help with a threaded nipple and a couple of flanged back nuts.

    Ok, so in reality, just make a tank connector by just using 2 thread nuts on threaded pipe.

    The problem I would have is I would need a straight connector on the nipple, I don't think I have enough diameter in the hole drilled, but I can check.

    I have priced using waste pipe and fittings and a waste tank connector and it only comes to about £12 so I probably go down that route.
