Anybody keep their mixing station outside?
What ext. mixing pump do you use?
Due to the limitation of my RO and tank distance I need to build my mixing station outside. 2 55 gal drums HDPE plastic with removable locking tops. Thanks.

I use an internal pump for mine (mag18) so no help there. I would suggest building a small "shed" to protect them from, well, the outside, as much as possible.

Where do you live? Will heat or cold be much of an issue? I know that around here, the water would easily hit 90+ in the summer and freeze solid in the winter.

I live in San Diego California so winters no lower than 55 and summers, well sometimes up to 110. Overally not too bad. I'll look into a canopy or a shed
