As to your point #3, my replacement tank is a confirmed, verified, obviously different, had to wait for the new one, had corporate involved redesigned tank and........wait for it........here it comes......not quite.......yep, you guessed it! Mine is cracked AGAIN.


Hmmmmmm....

OK, here is another factor this points to:

Faulty process parameters for fabrication!

When you think about how the crack looks this could be a huge factor. The crack looks bubbly and irregular also as if the material was "falling apart" instead of being pulled apart. There are also no stress marks around the crack that I noticed...

Weird and interesting
