Here's one link: https://2692772420.monstercommercesites.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=116

You MUST grind out all scale - and Never seize the draw bolts to snug up the replacements. If the ring is too corroded, or the man-way lip, it can be repaired by an R-stamp certifed welder.

    Just a gasket, but leaking pretty good. Any ideas on where to find a gasket?

    It looks like a standard manway gasket. Around here all the good supply houses have them as do larger boiler or tank companies.

    Is there a way to confirm this and order it through you or your supplier? No one here seems to know what I am looking for. (SLC, Utah)

    Thanks, Tim

    Can you measure it and make a sketch to take to the supply dude?? If you tell the supply house that you need a "manway gasket" you should be able to get some help.

    Is that tank used for domestic water or some other purpose?

    Tim!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Something you HAVE TO TRY!. It's called "The Right Stuff" and it's a gasket material in a can which we have used in everything from Pool pumps to Pump and flange gasket for boilers. Why I like It? you may ask,...It gets you out of a bind and can permanently replace those special gaskets that take 1 to 30 day's to get in the mail. I'm not saying it's the end all to be all, but I Love it and it works. Call Me at 716-5706667, and I'll fire off a tube to you. Remember I am the 1 who got you last fitting for you for something or other..

    Peace

    Looks like a handhole gasket

    Plumber Supply, Hajoca, and Standard Supply in Salt Lake have these on the shelf. At least they alway did :)

    There use to be a little plumbing repair shop on 33rd south below Highland Drive that had all sorts of old tank gaskets.

    M-1 Specalties out west SL a bit has those gaskets also. If you work on old stuff you need to check out M-1 They ship odd stuff all over the country. A very unique business. Been there for close to 40 years.

    There are also a few gasket specfic supply shops in Salt Lake. I'd bet they would have or could build that gasket.

    George and the guys at M-one are good friends of mine. At Hajoca, it's Vern to talk to...a good friend as well. The shop on 33rd is England, I believe. Turns out, no one had a manway gasket on the shelf, but PPI sent out the right gasket next day for me. It went in flawlessly today and I looked like a plumbing / hydronic GOD for fixing this. The old gasket was crisp, hard, broken, split rubber, and the new one was perfect. The plumber they called first wanted to just crank it down, and I said, it's your building...I will not try that.

    Thanks for all the advise!
