I can find a used one for about 200$ but with installation and tax it's still gonna cost me 700$.
Some people have suggested I put some J-B Weld on a bolt, plug the hole with it and then generously apply more J-B Weld on top of it. It would probably work if the epoxy bonds to the tank but if it's polyethylene I doubt that anything will.
i would go this rout personally. or can you tap threads into it and just screw a bolt in and jb weld the out side just incase?
