    really good idea but our 'tiki is different.

    the fresh tank is in the dinette seat base and the same size as the base, and if you drop anything down the sides or front of it then kiss the item goodbye or take the tank out.:Doh:

    i did mention on another post, to get to the tap you have to unscrew and completely remove the seatbase slats then break your arm in two places then ignore the pain while you thread your arm around the back of the tank to reach the tap.
    Swift have a lot to answer for on this bit of design.:Angry:

    thinking of moving the tap a bit nearer the pump under the other dinette base where the boiler and pump have taken up residence:BigGrin:. loads of room.:thumb:

    fittting

    It looks to me as if its a fairly standard fitting for the overflow of water expansion tanks for houses. most good plumbing merchants should stock them
