    It depends on where you want to put it. Probably the cheapest is a used propane tank, but they are hard to get in a basement. They are easy to hook up as they don't require any heat ex. I've been investigating several posibitys and have located some alluminum tanks but the cost of shipping gets in the way. Tarm has there system and it seems to work but is pricey. maybe some one will be able to help.

    leaddog - If you use a propane tank are you using them as closed system and you will need a large pressure tank, right? Are you plumbing the propane tanks in line or on some sort of bypass.

    Yes I would use them as a closed system and you will need a expantion tank but that is easy to do using a water heater or like type tank. There is a thread on here someplace on how to do that. There is also several different ways to plumb depending on your situation. there are lots of threads also on that.
