Rock Crawling Water Storage, Baffled?
Another little question for built in water storage design for 4wheeling. The point is this rig will get bounced around a lot.
14 gallons of water storage.
use two 7 gallon tanks plumbed together with shut off valves prior to the pump. Each tank 12 x 12 x 12
On short trips, I only need to bring 7 gallons. I don't want 7 gallons sloshing around in a 14 gallon tank.
On some trips, I want all 14 gallons. Then I can fill both.
Two tanks with the fittings will cost about $200
One larger tank with fittings will cost about $130
That's nearly 1/2 as much more, just to lessen the slosh. I feel that is important, but man...is it $70 important? I had two portable 7 gallon tanks in the previous build, and even the 7 gallon tanks annoying sloshed around. I can only imagine what a 14 gallon would do...but will it be that much worse...$70 worth worse?
The tank mfg cannot put baffles in.
I am going to put a 4" hole in the top for access to cleaning. Is there anything I can put in or modify to minimize the slosh if I got the larger tank.
Am I over thinking my sloshing concerns?
Thanks...I need to get this ordered ASAP, running out of time for my first trip of the season coming up.
