After some discussion with a friend who has his own rain barrel system, we decided that a couple of intermediate bulk containers would be suitable for our purposes here.
We got on Craigslist and happened to find two, 275-gallon tanks for $85 each. Sure, free would have been swell, but the chances of happening across a couple of free ones in the time we needed to didn’t seem likely. Plus, these things new are upwards of $600-$700. So, we won’t complain.
They’re kind of gross inside, so they really need a good rinse out. The previous owners seemed to have left a power washer in the barn basement. I don’t know if it’s got all it’s parts, but we’ll see, get whatever it needs, and then the insides of these tote tanks are toast (say that three times fast).
