Black Water Tanks

Black water replacement tanks can come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, and valve arrangements (location).  When ordering your replacement black water tank, please make sure to have the size, dimensions and 3" outlet valve placement for your existing black water tank handy. Two common ones with manufacturer's product numbers are shown in this link to black water tank replacements. This link will open in a new window. Therefore, simply close this new window to return here.

As these tanks are made of polyethylene plastic, the following products are not compatible: Sealants, pipe dope, greases, petroleum jellies, glues or other adhesives. Required plumbing include a 3" inlet and 1.5" or 2" vent in the highest part of the tank. You must drill these holes in the proper places to suit your plumbing situation. Installation of the piping is most easily accomplished by use of rubber grommets as shown.

Part #88-1259 - 3" rubber grommet

Part #88-1257 - 1.5" rubber grommet

The black water example tanks shown in the above link are listed below:

Our Product #  Manufacturers #  Size-Gallons  Overall Dimensions  Valve Location
23726  H086  27  9" x 19 7/8" x 56 1/2"  end center
23717  H492  29  13" x 19 1/2" x 32"  end offset

Also you should have the existing dimensions: length, width, and height. You should also know the position of the 3" discharge valve. Is it on the middle end, middle side, left end, right end, left side, right side, etc.?  If you can make a sketch of the existing one, it would be most helpful. Simply put detailed dimensions on the drawing similar to the drawings of these sample black and gray water tanks and fax it to PPL's RV Parts Superstore at 713-995-8697 and include your name and phone number and we will help you find a replacement.

NOTE: In some cases, you may need to create inlets and re-plumb to make the new tank work properly. If you have good information, PPL should be able to help you find a replacement unit requiring a minimum of work to install.
