Rural King - Ace Roto Mold 55Gal Tank Fitting

Just ordered 2 Ace Roto Mold 55Gal tanks (free shipping via the link below) and there isn't great info on what fitting they ship with. Anyone know?

I'd like to get started on a plumbing order for a mixing station but don't know what I'll need to plumb the bulkhead at the bottom of the tank.

Yes, it will be a female bulkhead in the tank. My 25 gal Ace Roto Mold tanks have 3/4" female threads in their bulkheads.

I just bought the exact same thing locally. It was new in the wrapping and did not come with a fitting, and wasn't drilled for a fitting.

Yes. Looking at the pic again, that tank doesnt have a hole in it. That would certainly open up the options for the bulkhead size.

Agreed but the descriptions I see where I bought it indicate it has a 1” fitting. I guess we’ll see...
