I use rubbermaid totes for when ever I need them. Regular laundry baskets.

White Vinegar and hot water to clean. Then rinse well and let it air dry out.

I have right now a rubbermaid tute holding my extra LR that I picked up with sw in it awaiting for the new tank arrival hope to have at the end of the month or the first part of Jan. if it takes that long I can move the LR into the tank that I have now but it will be very crowded if I do that. It is only a 55g. and I am already running out of room for I have been slowy adding small pieces of different types of Coral.

Thanks guys.

I just went to Home Depot I thought they had the Rubbermaid (Brute) trash can with wheels on them and could not find any nor on their website the only ones I could find with wheels already on them was the ones called RoughNeck by Rubbermaid can those be used to hold the saltwater to the water changes?

You should have no prob with any of those as long as they don't say they are treated on the label!

Search Results for brute

It's on their website. Did you ask an employee? They might just be out of stock. What about Lowe's or Menards?

I could not find a brute series with wheels 30-42 gal not even on their website. I did see one of those things that you can put under the can that has wheels but that is another $30+. I will look again.

any of those containers in walmart/home depot/lowes are fine. that's not true that they are treated with chemicals. why would they do such a thing? they are made for trash.

The cheaper plastics should be thorougly cleaned. I would not store salt water in those either. However all BRUTE containers are food grade and after a rinse to remove the dust, etc. I would be confortable using those with no worries of leaching.

Walmart does not carry the Brute series only the Roughneck series. I looked inside the ones at walmart and they are kind of shinny inside almost kind of greasey looking so back to Home Depot it is. Will just have to do without the wheels.
