    Bought these tanks and wondered if anyone had any ideas what I could use them for?
    They are about 5 ft tall and 30 in wide. All plastic.

    I would make one a huge feeder and use the other for water.

    Collect rainwater and use for garden irrigation. Or use water for chickens/animals. Great things to have!

    +1 Cut a hole in the top and add a spigot down low and they would make for WONDERFUL rain collection tanks! I love my rainbarrel because it saves me time and energy with my watering chores out at the barn!

    55 gallon pickle barrel made into a rainbarrel. Mesh screen on top to filter debris.
