A plumbing attachment system according to a first embodiment includes a pipe, a flexible spud, and a gasket. The flexible spud may be sealingly attached to a hole in a tank to provide a liquid proof seal therebetween. The flexible spud includes a flexible ring portion, which enables the system to be inserted into and to be retained within the hole of the tank. A plumbing attachment system according to a second embodiment comprises a new pipe, drain gasket, collar, and compression gasket, where the system is configured for attachment to an existing pipe construct. In a third embodiment, the system includes a pipe-guiding connector, sized and dimensioned to mate with a pipe and to provide a guiding track ("shelf) for positioning the pipe relative to a hole in a tank for ease of installation. Methods of installing the attachment systems in plumbing applications are also disclosed.
