What is the water capacity (in gallons) of this $25.00 reservoir (sounds like a kiddie pool from Walmart. Is it constructed of material that will enable it to maintain any integrity over time?
Sometimes customers want things that they just cannot, in reality, afford. They should be diplomatically informed of this. Again, quality should NEVER be compromised in order to bring a project within budget. Any low grade installation is a no win for both the customer and the contractor.
