    Hi all,

    On Saturday I need to collect 700L of water from 2 oceans aquarium.

    Does anyone in the Durbanville / Cape Town area have big water containers I could borrow?

    Thanks

    I have a number of 25l containers. Some filled already with 2Oceans water. You are welcome to use. I'm out of town from Wednesday to Friday - so you would need to collect tomorrow afternoon, or Saturday morning.

    PM me if interested.

    Ok, I can sort you out.
    I have 25 x 25l container (=625l). All empty.
    I also have 2 x 50l drums (=100l) - full of 2Oceans water. Suggest you use the water in the drums (been standing for a month or so) - if you are happy with it and then fill up all my containers when you go.

    Let me know

    Good luck with the new tank - and I learned something new today - 25 x 25l jerry cans can fit into an Opel and you can still drive it!

    Hi Sammy - can you arrange with @LCornelius? He has all my 25l jerry cans. You are welcome to borrow them.
    If you can arrange a suitable time etc you are welcome to pick it up from him when he is done and drop it off at my place later.

    @Sammy

    I'm doing one trip Saturday at around 13:00, first need to pick up the new tank.
    You are welcome to pop in first thing Sunday morning to collect the drums!

    Think it is going to take a while emptying 25 x 25L drums :lol:
