Ok guys i broke cardenal rule and opened my conical for a pic so here you go.
1. Remove screws by hand that hold the lid ring on.
2. Put a ring of the rubber "D" shaped weatherstrip around flat surface as close to inner wall as posible. If you did this right you should still see part of the holes for the screws.
3. Use silicone and run a descent bead around lip next to weatherstrip covering screw holes with it.
4. Set ring into place and hand screw your screws back in. Do not use screw gun you will strip the holes out.
5. Use finger and smooth off acess around outside that squished out from the lip.
6. Put 2 seperate rings of weatherstrip around contact surface of lid be sure to put seams 180 degrees out from each other for better seal

7. screw lid on as tight as you can and let sit for a day to compress it a bit. I used a long screwdriver between lid handles to tighten it with
8. Attach your hardware to your conical for racking and air lock etc. I use a bucket with water and a hose from the top for airlock
See pics for parts etc.

Sorry one other question - you didn't specifically say that you used silicone on the 2 d strips that you put on the lid - so I assume that you just used the adhesive on the strip - after pulling the tape off or did you put silicone on those too?
Thanks again

Guys,

At Agrimart we just lowered our prices a bit more on the 15 gal and 30 gal FD tanks.

http://agrimart.net/inductor-tanks/

Any questions, send me an email at sales@agrimart.net - Discounted shipping as well!

Thanks for all your business! Keep in mind Ohio Valley Ag online sales is now Agrimart

Jarrod

So, my buddy and I ordered the 15 gal inductor tank. We double checked that we ordered the male threaded full drain inductor, but we actually rec'd the female threaded tank.

So question to you guys. How big of a deal is it? As long as we use PBW to clean and starsans to sanitize do you think I should worry about it? Should I return it?

I did the same thing. 2" drain with a bulkhead fitting. Really did not like the grooves in the bottom. It bothered me enough to pay ruralking return shipping to order the correct unit. The 1 1/2" FD version is far superior.

If you ordered from Agrimart, I would e-mail Jarrod, he might be able to swap you out for little to no shipping. That happened to me, but my guess is he got his shipping cost back in the added orders, as they now market them as homebrew ferms on the site. Sure would love a second one, wink wink Jarrod

Did not use silicond on the strips at all the adhesive on them are good enough silicone only for sealing screw holes and edge of ring

Are folks getting the 1 1/2 FPT or 2 MPT? Any concern about the threaded piece internal on the FPT?
