You need a tank that was manufactured to handle pressure. It doesn’t take much pressure to balloon a thin walled tank with flat ends.Looking for input on using a Fuel Tank 1000 gallon for Thermal Heat Storage in a closed system. No luck finding LP tanks in the Western New York area.
I’d keep the fact that you’re going to make a thermal storage tank to yourself. Tell them you’re going to cut it in half to make a big planter or something.All makes sense. Ill keep looking. Most scrap yards around have them but will not sell them. They say its a liability....
I can tell you in 04-2009 a brand new delivered 500 underground LP tank was 1,312.00 for a job I ordered in SE Mass from Eastern Propane. I have the slip in front of me to prove ownership and it was asked for when we dumped Eastern for price gouging. When you add in the cost for installing proper fittings you really don't save a lot.I've always kind of wondered if anyone tried to but a new LP tank? Maybe from a LP place? And how much they cost?
I was starting to get desperate until I found a mountain of used ones at a scrap yard an hour away.
