    This is what the OP needs...

    But i have got the agitator! I thought I needed a central column to put the reel on, not an agitator? Now I'm confused. With my multi reel tanks there are columns and agitators, and I never use the latter.

    Can anyone clear this up?

    Thanks

    Ritchie you just need the central column, otherwise as already been said your tank will not be light tight and the reel will just move around in the chemicals.

    Re: new tank?

    Why don't you just take that tank back to seller and buy a brand new Patterson tank from Freestyle, or another vendor that supports this website. I recommend supporting production of new equipment whenever possible, and these tanks are expensive.

    You need the center column, which is part of the package sold by Freestyle (as shown in the link I've provided in a previous post). Here is the link again...

    If you don't want the extra agitator, just throw it away.
