View Full Version : Water storage

10-20-2013, 01:50 AM
So I have a medium size tank at 90g and a nano at 24g. So when I make water and mix for two water changes I'm making at least 25g of water. Not to mention the ATO water for both tanks and for mixing supplements etc. so I was storing RO/DI water in a 50g garbage can. Not a great solution obviously so I've been searching for a water tank that was food grade, more or less exactly the same size as the water itself, rugged, etc.

I found this online http://www.ufa.com/products/product.html?open&/products/transport-tank and picked it up this morning. I got a 55g tank with vented lid for $140 that is food grade, has the volume measurements on one side, and is essentially a cube the same size as the water. I am going to drill the lid for my RO/DI line and cords etc. Eventually I am going to put a tap in so I don't have to use a pump.

This is where I got my barrels...one for mixing sw, one for ATO water.


very reasonable prices.
