PK1A wall mount - any issues with weight of 4.5-gal tank
« on: August 19, 2022, 12:16:13 PM »
I will be mounting a PK1A to a stud wall. Have there been any issues with the long bolts attached to the wall mounts and clamps, bending or pulling out due to the weight of the 4.5-gal tank hanging from the stop cycle valve?

Been tested many thousands of times.  4.5 gallon tank only holds 1 gallon (8 pounds) of water.  If the tank goes bad and becomes water logged the 4.5 gallons of water is 35 pounds and might make the long bolts sag a bit.
