Freshwater nurse tank

Now before all you agricultural purists jump all over me, I know that by the official definition a nurse tank is used exclusively for anhydrous ammonia. I just called my new 30 gallon PCO (pest control operator) tank a nurse tank because it will be used in a similar manner to transfer water to my trailer.

The tank is made of UV stabilized polyethylene and is FDA approved for drinking water. I sanitized it this afternoon and though I'd share a picture or two.

Sure will beat the 5 gallon jerry can method. If I can find a reasonably priced pump with a higher flow rate than gravity I might pick one up later but for now gravity will work fine.

Where did you get that? I would love to have one to refill our tank without having to carry all the 5 gallon jugs to the fill.

I ordered a 3/4" light duty bulkhead fitting from them also. Rest of the fittings are from Menards.

Was the hole already already in the tank for your bulkhead fitting, or did you have to drill one?

Tank does not come drilled for the bulkhead fitting. You can drill it yourself or Tankresource can install it for you. I'm a bit fussy about things so I opted to install it myself. It requires a 35mm diameter hole so I just used the 35mm Forstner bit that I already have for Blum euro-style hinges. A 1 5/16" hole saw will also work. On my tank I chose to put the bulkhead fitting on the end with the gallon marker as close to the bottom as possible.
