Hurray for me I got the photos on. If you notice the rubber hose at the outlet of the tank and the smaller one on the stack. I just loosen the stainless clamps and pull the entire unit of both gate valves out and service or repair them. If I have to replace the valves then I have make an entire new assembly which is very easy to do.
It works wonderful, never leaks and is fixable which I strive for.

Thanks guys and gals for all of your input on the site.

Default Update 2/11/11

I received lots of good suggestions from the Forum but when I found out there was a local fellow that specializes in cleaning clogged tanks, I chickened out and hired him, and in retrospect I am glad I did. He showed up with a trailer full of equipment. He hooked up to the tank with a special fitting that allowed used of a high pressure spay hose.



The manual valve was very hard to open completely and a blockage prevented the pressure hose from entering the tank. We used a pipe camera to inspect the blockage. Something solid with shrags hanging from it.




We had to drill a hole in the ABS pipe to allow use of a prybar to get the blockage out of the way.



Once things were flowing, the same access port was used for the high pressure hose.



It took about 1 hour to get the tank cleaned and the black goop that came out reeked to high heaven. Now that the tank is clean, I will retrofit all the valves and plumbing.

What was the cost for this procedure? All he used was high water pressure?
