The Problem

Using a Reliance Aqua-Tainer is a simple way to make a portable grey water tank in a campervan conversion, because they are cheap, readily available, and portable (useful to carry where it can be disposed). That’s what we did in our first Ford Transit campervan conversion, and it’s been working well for several years living full-time in our van.

The problem is that Aqua-Tainer covers have proprietary threads, so no existing fitting will fit in the spigot threaded hole

The Solution

We designed a fitting (adapter) that allows to install a garden hose quick-coupler into an Aqua-Tainer, here is our setup:



We use 4 gallon Aqua-Tainer, but 7 gallon works too.

Do It Yourself.

We couldn’t find an Aqua-Tainer adapter, so we made one.

This is an homemade product.

Each adapter is individually 3D printed, takes over 30 minutes to complete, and requires manual labor. This is not a mass-produced product. This is a crafted, hand-made product.

Low Volume.

We created this product for our own needs, to make a single unit. There is no way for us to ramp up the production and lower the price, unless we take it to injection molding manufacturing but that’s a whole another level we’re not considering at the moment.

  7. the piece is exactly what I needed, a bit on the expensive side of things, but seeing as I am using Far Out Ride’s guides extensively, its probably fair.

  9. Bonjour à vous deux. J’ai bien reçu le produit dans les temps prévus. Il serait intéressant cependant que la transaction puisse se faire en français… Merci

    • Bonjour,
      Nous avons tenté de faire la traduction du site web il y’a de ça quelques temps. On a alors réalisé que ça représente une charge de travaille immense, il faudrait soit:

      – Engager quelqu’un pour faire la traduction et maintenir le site web à jour durant les mise-à-jours (que nous faisons constamment).
      – Laisser tomber la conversion et création de contenu pour plusieurs mois afin de faire nous-même la traduction.

      Pas idéal dans les 2 cas, puisque que Isabelle et moi assumons à nous seul la charge de travaille à 100%… 🙁
      On a donc prit la décision de laisser le site en anglais et de mettre l’emphase sur la création de contenu et le partage de connaissance.

      Merci de votre compréhension,

About us



Hello! We’re Isabelle and Antoine 🙂 In 2017, we sold our house (and everything in it), quit our engineering careers, and moved into our self-built campervan. Every day is an opportunity for a new adventure... We’re chasing our dreams, and hopefully it inspires others to do the same!
