Hi Bruce,
Hope you get these pix.  Just to let you know how my project is progressing, I am (hopefully) going to blast as soon as the weather warms up, insulate, plumb, wire, and reinstall all that woodwork we took out and painted over the last year.  Just pressure tested the two water tanks John Hope and I built, pix attached, and they held the 5 psi over a couple days so I quess they pass.  As you see, I did use an extra large access plate and was worried about sealing it.  Some experimentation with soapy water resulted in using a bead of Teflon compound on either side of the fiber gasket and nylon washers on the bolts to stop the leaks.  Since my project formerly was measured in decades, but is now measured by centuries, the KISS principle is becoming somewhat clearer to me.  Regards, Tomm Tomlinson.

DESIGNERS NOTE: We recommend 3 lb pressure to test tanks.
