Hey locals,

I'm still looking for a home for my IBCs.  I have two food-grade, already cut to one 200 gal tank, and either 2 growbeds and a sump or three growbeds, however you want to lay them out.  No pluming holes have been made.  All of the cages and tanks have been cut, just looking to get the $200 I spent on them originally.  May be able to deliver in the Denver area.  Save yourself a weekend with the angle grinder!

Water with a little pressure would probably suffice. You could fill it and let it sit so if there are chemicals in it then they will leech into the water and you can drain and refill. But it sounds like you wouldn't really need to.

I was told these totes were used to store water on the trains. I did ask before I bought them and the man who sold them to us said he cuts them in half and feeds all his livestock with them.

Do you know what was previously in the IBC totes?

Yesterday in the middle of nowhere out the front of a mans property we found 3 IBC containers in amazing condition. 330 gallons each and we got them $60.00 a piece. I cant believe it was such a find! We delivered them to the house about 30 minutes ago. So now we can warned I'm going to be asking some questions...Like what should I clean them out with to make sure there is no kind of residue in the IBC's?

I found a post on craigslist for a dozen galvanized stock tanks in Morrison. If anyone is interested you might check it out.

I'm not sure the cost.I appears he is wanting to swap or perhaps there are free.

I just found out that the Gator Farm near Alamosa is selling white Tilapia. I was looking for a place in Southern Colorado.

The Gator Farm is 17 miles north of Alamosa CO on Highway 17. Phone: 719-378-2612. 

Do we need a permit to buy them here in Colorado?
