Default 35 Gallon Plastic Conical Question

Looking for some advise. Found this on ebay. Is anyone using them? If so how are you liking them? Thanks

Thanks. Really thinking about pulling the trigger on it.

They are much cheaper at www.spraysmarter.com

131.94+ shipping

I ordered my 15 gal conical from them and shipping was under $20 and it got here in just a couple days.

RuralKing has the exact same tank for $136.99. They mention free shipping on the site, but there may be some exclusions. I'd call them before ordering.

I use that same one. Works well. I drilled a hole about the 2.5 gal mark for a "weldless" racking port and went with 2" TC butterfly valve for the dump.
I then mounted it to a wood platform with 10" wheels so I can roll it from my barn to the front garage when full.
For cleaning I use a stainless trash pump and a spray ball.

I'll be buying one of these as well.

FSR402, I have some questions about your set-up. I'm doing 15 gallon batches now (about 18ish into the fermenters) Looks like this tank would be a good size for those.

What spray ball are you using?

Are you using an Airlock, if so how did you rig it up?

Thanks! ill post my pictures when I'm done.

Where did you get the valves for that? Are they sturdy on the fermenter with it being plastic and all?
