    Default earthquake brackets for 10" tanks

    I'm guessing this is not that unusual of a request, but I have not had much success finding tank brackets for softener/filter tanks. Additionally, with the plumbing running between the wall and the softener tanks and the standoff required by the Fleck 7000SXT valve, I can not use brackets that bolt directly to the wall and try to place the tanks less than an inch away. Probably needs to be more like 6 inches from the wall.

    Any recommends on these earthquake-country items?

    12" strut clamps work perfectly. A little fabrication for the channel and you are good to go.

    You can also use e track, simple and quick!

    Thanks for the links. I think the 12" strut clamp you mention is what I am after. I want something to grab onto the tank nicely, that I can mount to a 8" standoff from the wall without turning it into a fabrication project.
