Does anyone have any sites online (or local places in Orlando, FL) that sell 100g plastic drums? I'm looking to putone in my garage and hook my RO unit up to it so I can have 80 or so gallons on hand for WC's and other small needs for my tank. I think Brendon had one, but not too sure where he got it from.

Anyhow, TIA and hope someone can refer a good place.

I got mine from a place in TX. I had looked at several local places like tractor supply. I liked the one in TX because it had a small footprint and was tall so it did not take up much room. With the shipping it actually came out to be the same price as local and I did not have to pay tax. Mine is 300 gal but they have one that is 100 gal (23" diameter by 63" tall) Best SW hobby investment I have made. I bought a 60 ft hose and put it on a mag 12. Now 200 gallon WC are a snap. If you want me to look up phone number where I got it from PM me.

my suggestion would be to check feed stores or even places like lowes/HD. Look for large Rubbermaid water troughs, seems they also refer to them as "stock tanks".
