    You would need to reinforce the ends with ribs at right angles to the end sheets like in a star pattern maybe, then a half inch rod down the middle just to be sure. But really need to find a PE to do some analysis for real, the cylinder walls may be kinda thin. Welding could be done with the right precautions, but pretty scary nonetheless. For that money a propane tank shouldn't be out of reach.

    If nothing else get a couple propane tanks,they are most likely clean inside,you be able to weld fittings on them,like me I could not handle a big tank so I hooked up 4 smaller tanks in a loop,works great, and I used one for DHW with coil worked out good,this 2nd, year for me with this.
