Where to find a clear water tank?

Postby Rocky5000100 » Tue Sep 09, 2014 10:30 am

Hi all,

I'll be doing a Cargo Trailer to Toy Hauler conversion build this spring, so I'm in planning stages right now.

I'm looking for a clear water holding tank, between 3 and 5 gallons. I found some that are those sizes, but they're all white. Ideally I'd like to see inside the tanks to judge fullness. I've seen some people with clear ones around here.

Here is one I was looking at, but it looks like it's white. http://www.plastic-mart.com/product/227 ... ank-rvb267

Does anyone have any links to some?

Thanks!

HDPE is food grade I picked up several 15 gallon carboys that originally had car wash soap in them to use as tankage in the tiny house.

Check eBay out.

I am sure you can see water levels on many of the translucent models. Kind of like home sprayers and such.

A bright LED flashlight brings out the water level line on my translucent white tanks.

I use a 16gal ebay tank kit with this faucet and pump and it works great and you can see the level easily
