Don't know dp thanks...

I've pretty much settled on the Lowes pump.  They last about a season and a half running constantly.  And give me just the right amount of water.  70 bucks for 3 years use is tough to beat. Wink

Unless a motor problem this type of pump is easy to rebuild. We use air driven one at work all the time.

thanks for the pics and tips. But I am wondering, since this is about half the total floor space that I was planning on using  (24 sqft vs 11.xx sqft) how many are you able to hold per tank?

In a 4x10 shedder you can put about 500 peelers.

ahh that explains why went with the smaller size tanks.  If i can find a longer tank like that while maintaining the same same depth , I'll go with that else it just be cheaper if I just build a wooden tank.

I generally start out with 200-250, 2 bushels filled to the strap.

But when things get full I have put 4 bushels to the tank...

How long do wooden shedding box usually last? Do yall line it with something to extend life? For example, shower wall/floor material available at the Hardware store.  Or is that more work then needed. I am going to guess most of ya'll use something other then just wooden boxes )on the professional level) such as plastic liner, fiberglass, or even concrete.

I thought about making a box with the wood as the mold" and just fiberglass over that, but not sure how cheap i be able to get the fiberglass material now days. (3x8 ft with a 10-12in walls and the corners cut off at 45 degree angle to promote water flow)

Thanks for all those pictures, I like how you have your drain cover notched out on the bottom...  How did you get the pipe to stick up from the drain like that? does the bulkhead fitting allow for a slip fit of a smaller diam pipe into it?
