Create RO/DI Water Storage Ideas

I'm gearing up to start a large SW setup in my garage in a month or so. I have been looking into water storage systems and have seen some trash can and small tank setups. I'm thinking about a 20-30 gallon food grade water storage unit and a larger rubbermaid container that will possibly fit over it when empty for mixing. The larger trashcan won't work in my garage. I'd like something to possibly fit under a workbench.

Does anyone have a filter and storage setup (or seen one) they'd like to share? Also, any links to containers or good places to get them?

Here's mine. Tanks are poly, water storage tanks from the local ranch supply store. They come prefitted with the bulkheads and come in assorted sizes.

Any chance you could get me a link for the same thing online or the info on those blue stickers? This is exactly what I'm thinking about doing. How many gallons are they?

This is pretty insane. This is what I'm thinking on a smaller 30-40gallon scale more like yours.

Holy cow, shipping is over $100! I'm going to see what places might carry something like this around town.

I can't seem to find anyone selling storage containers locally so far except for 1 place and they aren't sure if they are NSF or safe for drinking water. I was wondering if RV water storage units would work. If so I was thinking I could find some of these locally. Either way they are cheaper.
