Frequently Asked Questions.
This is an easy process. DO NOT use acid first. To remove any chemicals or welding lubricants from your new tank, you must first run a cleaning cycle with a caustic solution. We recommend running two separate cycles for absolute cleaning. Do not use an acid first, as a white residue will form. You must always clean your tank after receiving it from the factory.
The Unitanks do not have a spray ball included. The Unitanks come equipped with a 3″ TC Accessory port in which you could place a 3″ Spray Ball.
No, Unitanks do not have internal volumetric markings.
Although Unitank has the capability to serve beer directly, it is recommended that you transfer the beer to a dedicated serving vessel like a Brite Beer Tank or Keg to avoid the inadvertent contamination of fermentation by-product in the finished brew.
We test all our tanks for optimum quality before placing our 5-year warranty on them. This covers any issues with the tank’s function that would be considered a factory error. We also replace broken or faulty parts should this occur in the 5 year warranty period. We require photos of the damaged part(s) before helping with warranty related issues. If we determine it is an operator error we will not cover replacements or fixes. The warranty becomes absolutely void if you make any alterations or fabrications to the tank after purchase. We do not guarantee other people’s handy work.
