Need your brains
« on: December 09, 2004, 10:23:10 AM »
I am in need of a way to make up 100 gallons of water at one time. That is no wider then 22 inches and no longer then 48 inches. It needs to be light weight so that it can be moved with minimal effert.

I want to avoid using multiple containers, in example two 50 gallon garbage cans.
Any ideas????

Why so much water at once?  Can you run your RO/DI unit right to your tank and then make as much water as you need?  I have never seen a 100g drum just 50g drums.  The  most I think you will be able to get is the trashcan as you mentioned that I can think of.

possibly stack two 55 plastic barrels and hook them with PVC.   I have seen this before.   IamJosh has this in Spokane..  I need to show you a picture of it Matt.   The only problem is ...I can not send it in Raw format.

Home Depot has 65g roll away trashcans.  That's bigger than 50g but not as big as the 100g you are looking for.  But it's an option.

Hmmmm. I will have to keep that in mind. Maybe they have something else. Or maybe I could make a frame and use thick pond liner for one.

Hey Ed, what are the chances you can score me a couple of those plastic 55 drums from work. I will pay for them.
