Waste water container

10 posts in this topic

Anyone have any ideas on sealed plastic containers for transporting waste water (mainly soapy water from doing dishes) back to shore for proper disposal. Thinking 15-20 gallons is perfect size. I know I've seen them before just can't imagine where to get one. Prefer western TC, St. Cloud, or Willmar area. Use another forum site where a smilie is available that gives the finger. That would be for the pigs that leave their dump on the lake.

We have ones that we use for transporting water to the lake. You can get them almost anywhere. Now if you don't want to spend money I may be able to talk to someone that could get me a couple for you. Our place is on Rice Lake. Let me know and I can see if I can get you one. I will be up there this weekend fishing. e-mail: MinnesotaSports@safsc.org

Bryce,
I have one that I would be willing to part with. The cover screws on and has a built in gasket. Drop me a line at tstifter@pressenter.com

Thanks for the replies. Wish I had time to meet up with you and see what you've got. Alas, the life of the laid off outdoorsman is a busy one. Really looking for info for somewhere that I can just stop by, run in and buy one. Checked my trusty rv dealer and not willing to pay that much for their storage tank.

Bryce, I don't know if you do alot of deep frying fish/turkey, but those plastic containers that contain the peanut oil would work great. When I'm done with the oil I save the containers and use them for just about anything. They also have a screw on top that will stay sealed.

P.S. Hey Stiff when are you headed up to LOW again?

Exactly the type of container that I'm looking for only bigger(10-15 gallon). I know they are made. I just hope to find one somewhere to buy. Thanks.

Fleet Farm comes to mind. They have almost everything. I should be going there at lunch so I can check for you.

Bryce,
Drop me a line or provide an e-mail address. I think I have just what you need and it won't cost you anything. I work on the NW side of the cities and it will just be a matter of making arrangments to meet.

Fritz,
We are planning to head up to LOW in mid March (19-23 I think). Sounds like we will have a very large (and fun) crew going up this year.

Fry oil for restaurants come in 10 or 15 gallon jugs with handles like milk jugs. The bung hole is usually about 3" in diameter, so a pour from a bucket is easy. Try any restaurant in the Pepsi-Co chain of franchises - Pizza-Hut, KFC, Burger-King.

    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
