    They do have, they build tanks all the time. It's best to go see them and you can pick and chose what you need.

    All our overflows come with these fittings 45mm and 54mm but dare not even try for a price from Tunze I think they will be too expensive. Try Astore Durban Im sure I have had them from them before, the fitting is really first class with no leaks.

    Never saw the response to the post. I sent idol an email asking if they supply these fittings, snd never got a reply. The main reason I was looking for them is that the piping connects directly to the tank fitting, saving a lot of height, if you have a problem, you only have to loosen the nut and the piping disconnects from the tank.
