Hi, I'm building a water table to go with my soon to arrive bulltear 4'x4' gantry kit. I'm considering using a 42 gallon plastic water tank for the air bladder water table drainage reservoir. Does anyone have any experience with this type of tank? I would lay it on its side with the 1 1/4" hose barb closest to the floor and have the air in and out on the top. The water table will have 3" walls with 2 1/2"- 2 3/4" of water in it.

Yes, the plastic tank should work for you fine. My question is how are you going to attach the slats to the plastic without making potential leaks...?

I'm welding a steel tube to the bottom of water tray, the hose clamping a vinyl tube to it and the tank. I'm just waiting for the gantry kit now.
