I paid $503.00 for my 150 Gl. tank whith aluminum straps ( I had the gaskets replaced) because they were not compatible with SHC. and they will probably leak soon.
is this a fair price?



Ask for a refund!!!!! You got gouged.

Hey,

I just got to tell you guys that it seems tropo and I {both new to this buisness } will be out looking for jobs pretty much in the same area. He was nice enough to give me his phone number and we talked for atleast an hour. I could not believe how nice he was, not only his knowledge of this work, but his knowledge in general. He said he may be able to even help me out obtaining some material that is needed for roof cleaning. I offered him my assistance in the future and I am looking forward to speaking with him again soon.

hey Tropo,
just a suggestion, you might want to check craigslist in your area if you have`nt already.. I know here we have stores such as tractor and farm , rural king and farm and fleet they all have them.
But u might get lucky on craigslist

Make it a great day,
KID

I am glad you at least gave it a try and looked, sometimes on ebay you can find deals used but barely abused and even new tanks heck even sometimes, right in your backyard

Thanks Mike,
These water tanks are going to make No pressure chemical roof cleaning in Baltimore MD a breeze with up 2 550 gallons of tankage available to me. I just got my first order of SH and TSP 4 days early and dropped in my yard. I wasn't up @ 5:30 when it got here the delivery man woke me up lol. I hope to test it tonight after a water sealent job we are going to today. My rental roof is a perfect test subject. Monday I have a 4500+ sq. ft roof to do in 55 degrees so it will have a good potency test there.

I didn't read through this whole thread so disregard this comment if already mentioned:

From what I've seen, it is the shipping of these tanks that usually kills you on cost. There are Tractor Supply stores all over the place, have you checked there? They have a good supply of tanks on hand of various sizes.

Totally Jeff, the shipping is murder so I drove an hour and a half away to get these. A 250 gallon round tank runs almost $500 ea at my local tractor supply and some other farm supply places around me.

I have been searching but not finding actual amounts. Maybe not looking in the right place. I have a 200 gal. tank, how many square feet of roof will I be able to clean ? Nothing extremely dirty. Would hate to be on the road and run short of Love!
