    I dont have a big house, yard or garage so im a bit more limited than some of you country folk.

    They got these at Tractor Supply Company. 305 gallons. Made for water storage.

    How would something like this work? Can they deal with sunlight?

    Is about 4 ft tall and 3 feet across.

    I suppose durability in the harsh sun, water going bad, freezing and cracking and if it needs to be on a flat concrete slab or can sit on the grass are my main concerns.

    Potable Water??? Food Grade?? Yes on a good flat surface. Don't know what you drive, but check craig's list Houston. 275g +/- Square with Aluminum cages and Food grade. I stacked 2 in garage, add a shot of bleach then fill. I rotate water into flower beds every couple of months. She, I and 2 labs will not be thirsty.

    FOOD GRADE WATER CONTAINERS/TANKS 275 Gallons

    I hate to take up that much space in my garage but that may be a good spot for this. Flat surface, out of the sun (but not heat). Yes these are meant for water so i suppose that makes them food grade. Super expensive though. I have also considered going with multiple barrels so if i bust one i still have the others instead of one large container.

    Ill need to buy local and probably have someone deliver it. Me being a backwards Texan and not having a truck and all.

    I bought and installed the 1550 gal. tank from Tractor supply last year and hooked it up to catch run off from my roof. Check out this website for everything you need to know: catchtexasrain.com

    The black ones are for potable (human) water, the white (clear) are for stock or gardens only.
