I would replace them with reinforced plastic fittings like Tru Design sold in the US by Raritan.

Banjo bulkhead fittings and hose barbs might be another way to go.

Thanks Parks. I like the looks of those sst bulkhead type fittings . Do they have a gasket on each side? With it being sst I could tighten pretty good. I guess I could run a wire up thru the hole wth the fitting on it and pull it up against the inside of the tank and tight the outside flange nut .
