iTrader: 4 / 100%

Joe I think there is something wrong with that trailer. You don't need hazmat placards for food or water trailers, except maybe high proof alcohal, so I would never use something that ever had those kinds of labels on it for water storage. It's also only rated for 25psi so your still going to need a proper pump and pressure system.

I will say the nice thing about a water trailer is you could tow it to a water source, lake or river, and fill it. It would still require filtration after you got it home but it would be doable and something that sized is going to need a rig to tow it with.

You could probably get a smaller water trailer, say 500 gallons, and use that to transport water from your source to a underground storage tank. Obviously your going to want several layers of filtration.
Some people will do skanky things for $25, and not all those people are crack whores.

Correct me if I am wrong, and tell me why if I am.
Your logic is sound, imo. That should work fine.

I think that photo was not of the actual water trailer for sale. I know about the placards.

I am just looking at options. Tomorrow I will call the plastic tank companies and ask them about what pressures they can handle. I just like the idea of having 10K or 20K gallons of water on my property.

I have 2 55 gallon drums stored away in my garage. I use $14 water preserver from amazon. Its slowly releases the bleach over 5 years. The trick is you have to quickly seal the barrel and never open until an emergency or after 5 years when its time to rotate. The intraweb says to keep out of sunlight and never place ontop of cemented floors. The cement can leach chemicals up into your plastic barrel. To be safe I built a small platform and place them ontop of it. This is my first time using the Water Preserver I wont know if it worked until 2017. Good Luck

Be fit everyday.
