    If you insulate it and give it a good lid I see no issues

    Even housed within small wooden Wendy house or tool shed. As long as it is enclosed and insulated.

    Bigger Wendy house and you got your own fish room... With space to put away all those empty drums, pipes, RO unit, salt mix drum...
