RE: Water tanks
Wright brings up a subject I have always wondered about. In the past I have
garden hoses to fill my outside ponds, only to kill all the fish. Learning
the hard way,
I bought hose that was rated for "potable" water, for campers, etc, and that
problem. I have never had the same trouble with plastic storage trays or
but the potential seems to be there, and most have no such rating as
Wright was able to find.
I wonder if anyone has had unpleasant results with containers leaching toxic
the water.I use about two dozen Rubbermaid shoe containers for my killies,
so far with excellent
results, but I will admit to raising a few expendable guppy fry in one
before I trusted them
enough to use.
I went to Smart and Final, and found they had some big dark gray heavy-duty
ones that were less compact (round) but food grade and with nice stiff flat
lids. As I recall, they were about 40G, and not much more than what Kent
paid (version 2). About 2' across, and 28" tall, they have been a nice
secure way for me to store water. The slight closet rearrangement to
accomodate the larger footprint has been well worth it, IMHO.
