I got a used Pro Chem Legend, and a new Prochem Pumpout, but in shut off unit, order to install it, I'm going to need to move the float shut off assembly, and cut some new holes into the tank, and plug a few holes.
Suggestions?
I have a decent hole saw, so I'm not so concerned with that as I am how to keep them water and air tight, and how to best plug up the old openings.
I've got pictures on my Galaxy Note, but I can't figure out how to post them on threads.
Thanks in advanced for any suggestions or feedback.

Derail, sorry. Did you get the original prochem pumpout? And how much was it?

A good bulkhead should keep the holes you drill water tight

Thanks! That's what I was looking for.
The pumpout came with one set for the discharge line, but I'll need to relocate the float valve, which is inserted into a flange welded onto the tank, so I'll need some kind of bulkhead seals for that too.
And I'll need one for the electrical wire.

I can't figure out how to post pics from my Samsung Note 4, suggestions?
Today is my first day using your mobile app too.
How does it look on the mobile app Ron?

I'm not a big fan of mobile website apps Rob, I see them as a necessary evil. lol
That, and I haven't really explored TMF on the mobile app yet, the main reason I got the tmf app was to post pics from my phone, rather than syncing the phone with the laptop.
But I can't do that, so I'm back on the laptop.
I do most of my serious browsing and searching on the laptop, except for Instagram, facebook and snapchat.
So I really haven't seen enough of the TMF app to draw any conclusions yet.
How are things for you Rob?
Long time no see. :)

The problem is not the app, it's your shitty Samsung note...

Sorry, I once had a 50 step tutorial on how to post a pic on the TMF app while on an android. Next time get a phone that doesn't make things difficult for ya...
