Hi everyone,

I have been thinking about getting a 45g vertical storage tank for salt water storage and found some for $102, but the site says they're not economical to ship individually.  I expect individual shipping to be probably $100 or so.  I think we could get that down to $25 if we ordered a pallet worth and shipped it LTL.  10 fit on a pallet.  For that matter, you wouldn't have to order a 45g if you need something else.  They have lots of other sizes.  I'm going for a 45g because I'd like something I just dump a full bag of salt into and let it mix.  :)

Here is the website I'm looking at: https://m.plastic-mart.com/product/8707/45-gallon-vertical-bulk-storage-tank-tc1851ia

Would anyone be interested?

Well I have good news and I have bad news...

First off, bad news.  There will be no group buy.

The good news is the reason... One of the manufacturers has a location just south of Columbus, so we can go pick them up locally.  You have to call the website below to order them for pickup with no shipping.  They also said pickup takes 24 to 48 hours to arrange.  Pretty sweet deal!

This is the one I'm talking about:  https://www.plastic-mart.com/product/11545/

Is that the Norwesco warehouse in Lancaster, I bought my 165 from them.  Shop around, several distributors will allow you to order and pickup at the warehouse.

I found this place for tanks. They are a few dollars more but might be closer for some one near Lima.  https://www.usplastic.com/catalog/item.aspx?itemid=23178&catid=871
