Default Best barn find

I was at a guys house to blow out his winterize his sprinkler system when I say these tanks in a back corner. I asked him what he was planning to do with them......................................He said he was planning on making his wife happy by getting rid of them AND! would I like them Free get them the hell out ASAP So being the kind sole that I am I traded the $35.00 blow out charge for them. They were installed and removed never used. The tall tank is a 120 gallon Epoxy lined storage tank $350.00 new and the short one is a 85 gallon pressure tank $935.00 new. Came with pressure switch, guage plenty of ball valves and copper scrap.
I plan on storing all extra Permeate that doesn't get used for washing the unit and use it for all sugar house and equipment cleaning. I would like to circulate the the water into a crude preheater in the flue stack to warm it up. I do have a hot water heater but don't need hot water to wash tanks and floors.

Thats a great find. Friday I cleaned out a storage trailer at one of my customers. 4 double squirell cage blowers, 4 gast vac. pumps, 6 bigger vac/blower pumps 2 which are brand new and one big dusk collection pump. Keep an eye on the classifieds once tested and checked out they are for sale minus the dust pump.

Free lol. I got them on the cheap but I do the 100point inspection, replace worn parts, hone the cylinders etc. and test run and check hgs. Parts and labor is what gets paid for. Great try though.. ..........
