Curious as to how you're switching the pump on and off when you move the
hose from tank to tank...
Or have you put some type of on/off valve on the hose? If so, blocking the
flow of water with a valve doesn't harm the pump?

My real question is whether one of these things is likely to leach
chemicals into the water... is there a particular type of plastic I
should try to get/try to avoid?
I have used plastic garbage cans, the type you can buy at the local Rono or
Home Depot that have wheels and have used them for years with no trouble.
Just recently I have been in contact with a plumber who is getting me two
barrels from an R/O water supplier. They are about the size of a 50 gallon
drum although another person told me that actually hold closer to 80
gallons. They have a threaded fitting on the bottom. You could always check
with local R/O dealers but those garbage cans are cheap and work well. I use
a little pond pump and enough line to reach all of my 40 tanks. Put the pump
in the garbage can , plug her in and fill away.
