Direct Mount on Aboveground Tank

Aboveground tanks require both a pressure/vacuum vent and an emergency vent. The
pressure/vacuum vent reduces losses due to evaporation and is an air quality control measure.
The emergency vent provides a relief from the pressure resulting from heating and boiling of the
tank contents during a fire situation. Both vents must be properly sized for a given tank.


Screw 1-inch suction pipe into install-a-socket. Suction pipe should be long enough to allow
3-inch clearance from bottom of tank. Apply gasoline-resistant pipe compound to male


Screw install-a-socket directly into 2-inch flange in the aboveground tank.


Lift the pump to the height of the tank and tighten it into the install-a-socket. Apply gasoline-
resistant pipe compound on male thread. NOTE: If using an automatic nozzle with the
extended nozzle hanger, you may need to use a 2-inch coupling and close nipple in between
the pump and the install-a-socket. This will prevent interference of the hanger with the top of
the tank.



Conduit section for correct installation of electrical conduit.

NOTE: Aboveground tanks, located at commercial, industrial, governmental, or manufacturing

establishments and intended for fueling vehicles used with their business, cannot exceed
a capacity of 6000 gallons.
