With the recent discussion on the new 15 gallon CFX, I thought I'd chuck this photo up for comment.

It is a few years old now.

I was not happy with having to drain the Docking Station via the CFX, so I installed a manual dump.

Where the solution line comes from the Docking Station to the pressure pump, I installed a three way Tee Piece.

To this I attached a length of hose, tying it off along the metal solution feed pipe.

At the far end I installed a simple on/off tap.

It's easily reached under the tank to turn on or off.

It works for me even if it doesn't look to flash.

No one sees it, & I'm able to drain the tank as it's only water, while I load the rest of the gear in the van.

:yoda:

My set-up used only the ball shut-off as a drain for the tank. I just drilled a hole to accept the ball valve on the front of
the unit. It wasn't the large docking station, just the standard CFX. I believe Ron Marriott was looking at it out in B.C.
Good work Shorty!
