Water tank for a Ute

Postby Lockyer » Sun Mar 18, 2012 9:43 am

I have a back problem and have been told I am never to lift anything from below my waist and nothing heavier then 1 kg above my waist, so our 2 x 20 ltr water containers are now a no go area for me, I used happily fill them and load them onto the ute :armsup

So I need to replace them with something and came across this http://www.campingbug.com.au/40-Litre-D ... -Tank.html and would like to know if anyone has used one/owned one etc etc
A review would be nice, I'm thinking it could be setup next to my LPG tank and will take a hose along to fill and would have to think how to drain/use. :#

Cheers

a mate got a plumber to plumb up his hilux ute, the water piping runs along the chassis rails both sides under the tray, it goes up to the front of the tray for the fill point and the tap is where the numberplate sits, he keeps it full as it makes the ute more stable cornering but as he is a mechanic he uses it to wash his hands on breakdowns etc.

Its drinkable water as its just household plumbing. I would want a lockable filler though.

Cost him nothing as the plumber was a customer / mate.

I thought about doing the same and the only issue problem for me is my back I'm not allowed to bend and my ute is a 2wd so alittle lower then a 4wd plus with my back issue I most likely wouldn't be able to fit it myself - well not for the next 6 months anyway :(

Thanks for the idea :+
