Am looking for advice.
I will be pulling one of my Atlee 30.5 gallon tanks to repair a leak that has developed. Would prefer to take them some place locally to save time but just found out that FAD can weld them. Obviously there are advantages to having the manufacturer perform the repair.
At this point the tank is still in the wing so I haven't pinpointed exactly where the leak (more like a seep) is occurring. although it seems like it's on top at the rear corner. Does welding these tanks take more skill than an average welder (I would use someone who has repaired aircraft tanks before) has? Would I be better off just sending them to Atlee?
They told me that right now there's up to a 3-1/2 week turnaround. Worth the wait if they are the best ones for the job. Thanks for your thoughts.
