Water transfer tank

Im in a position where can't have a dedicated spray rig. So I've been putting a 65 gallon tank in my truck bed. I'm finding I need more water between filling up my z spray and foam marker.

What do you think about these tanks ...

The seller says the company he buys them from does a special triple rinse with a pressure washer. My concern would be what was in it previously.

I used one for about two years but it was just to big for the space i had. I paid $60 cheapest $ per gallon tank you will find. The one i had was used for vegetable oil. I also did not like to look but if that does not matter to you then use it about 250-275 gal lots of water for the Z.

Those are some very nice looking trucks. You might start a thread on this site and post some pics and more info. A lot of guys are looking for exactly what you have designed.

A large mix of hose pulling guys as well as zspray/permagreen applicators here.

Should work. I would rinse it out thoroughly--especially if any odor remained. Then spray some flowers or weeds with the water to see if there were any ill effects.
