    Just rember you can't buy a water tank, the stuff is too heavy it will buckel a water tank. I know the liquid we will be using is 14lbs/gal. Supplier said the tanks are $ 5-6/gal. I found a fiberglass brine tank same that he has used for an awesome deal on craigslist. I have to have capacity to take a tanker at a time (5000 gal) or more (only way he'll deliver), other wise I have to P/U. Good Luck.

    That's not true. We have used 3000 gallon poly water tanks for the last eight years. Never a problem.We store 21,000 gal at a time

    Just relaying what I was told, but water weighs about 8.35 lbs/gal, this stuff is nealy double that (14 lbs), So you 3000 gal tank is designed to support say 25,050 lbs at the bottom, your loading it with 42,000 lbs. If the tank lets go what are the cleanup costs going to be ? Let alone loss of product & tank. Remember that one teaspoon of salt can contaminate 5 gals of water, how much soil/ground water will 3000 gals contaminate. Personally I'd rather spend the upfront cost than have a tank buckle or burst.
