water supply

Postby wysedav » Fri Apr 13, 2018 1:03 pm

I'm going to buy my water supply bulkhead and was wondering if I should get the gravit fill and the city water fill type or just gravity fill.

Very basic system, gravity fill for tank, tank to pump and pump to faucet. I could get fancy and add a city line to feed the faucet as well but not really sure its needed and its one more source of leaks. If I added the city line I would just run it directly to the hot fitting on the faucet so it would be pretty simple too I guess.

This is for a basic tear drop with no bathroom or shower.


Thanks for your opinions

I went with a gravity fill only. I considered a city/hose connection as well, but decided it was redundant. I can just stand there with a hose for a minute while my 11 gallon tank fills.

Do not forget the low point drain, you need to be able to empty it too. The advantage of a city water inlet is that you do not have to fill the tank. We prefer having one.
you also need a gray water tank.
