200 Gal Oil Tank – Pt III

Telephone Pole/pipe support
The pipe from the large tank to the smaller one bothered me just hanging in the air. I decided to put a telephone pole in place. This does a couple of things .. (1) A simple brace on the pole where the pipe passes and (2) the pole adds ‘flavor’ to the scene.
Valve & Tank Access
I had originally thought to put the ladder on the far end of the tank platform. It seems tome though that since I need access to the valve that it would make sense to put the ladder on this end. A small platform below the valve.

The small platform doesn’t need to be very large – just enough for someone to have a place to stand while operating the valve. The ladder needs some kind of hand-hold at the top.
