Water tanks Thu, 11/10/11 10:32 PM (permalink)
What size water tanks does everybody have? I am looking into a 21gal fresh water and 30 gal grey water for my food truck. Is that to small or should that be a good size to last a few days?

    We dump waste/fill fresh tanks daily. We just prefer it that way. We are running 10 gallons potable and 30 gallon waste with a tankless water heater. Most HDs require your waste tank be a certain percentage larger than potable water (including what your water heater holds). Our waste tank is much larger as it was a freebie.

      21 gal is nothing. You can easily go through that in one batch of dishes.
      Use the biggest tank you can. Most hd's require 15% larger grey water tank.

        We have a 10 and a 15 gal due to space, but go as big as you can..

          I agree - we have a 21 fresh and 35 grey tanks - go as big as you have room for.  If I had my way I would have put a 100+ gallon fresh and greywater tanks and fill/empty them every few days instead of every day. Then use a larger pump system with tanks in the back of my truck. We were at a fixed location most of last season. It is a real pita to have to be there to do the water every day.
