sorry i havent been on the boards for a while...ive bought a new home and its been busy. anyways...i am in the planning(and buying) stage for a large in wall tank and am trying to track down some 100gal rubbermaid stock tanks. i have found them on ebay and the internet but the shipping costs more than the tanks. i figured with our proximity to lancaster there has to be a way to get them locally. ive called a couple of feedstores that i found on the internet but with no luck. thanks.

Try tractor supply down in Dover. I think they stock them. Also, try Stoltzfus Feed and Storage. They are located just outside of Gap, PA. off of RT 41. There is a slight chance I may go to That Fish Place this weekend. If I do, I will stop off at Stoltzfus and find out.

Since your in Wilmington, The Tractor Supply in Elkton might be closer but there is also tax. I would still think that with the shipping cost, overall it might be cheaper.
It's located on RT 40 west bound about 1/4 mile on your right hand side just after you pass the MD/DE line.
You can call them ahead of time to get a price and availability 410-392-2227.

I got one last week from Tractor Supply Co. 100 gallon for 69 plus tax. They even had black or gray.

heres the quote i got from rubbermaid direct. can you believe they use to have free shipping for these?
The cost of each 100 gallon stock tank is $118 and the shipping cost for both to zip 19701 is $117 to commercial address or $177 to residential. If you have any other questions or would like to order, please let me know. Thanks and have a great day!

everybody is right about tractor supply. the one you want is there for $70.
or you might try this one i have been using for some koi outside. the TUFF TUB 110 OVAL is a bit more compact because the bottom is flat and the sides are smooth planes, unlike the rubbermaid 100. but its a sort of soft tub. so i dont know how it would take to bulkheads drilled into it. but for just a basement sump, perfect. and only $56
one or the other should be just fine.
