Hello all, does anyone have an electric hot-water heater that they are no longer using? 30 or more gallon capacity preferably and used is fine as long as there are no leaks...

I am also looking for a fuel tank that is in decent shape (i.e. no leaks), about 275 gallons or so, smaller would work too...Preferably an outdoor tank to facilitate loading the thing...

Are you looking for a home heating oil tank? My father has one in his house - he converted to gas and no longer needs it - I believe its about half full too.

Home heating oil tank is perfect, but with it inside and loaded it'd prob be a ***** to move...I guess can drain it into a few drums though...Is it still connected? How much do you want for it?

As for the hot water heater, that sounds perfect too, how much?

Its in my fathers basement - he lives in a rancher and the garage is at basement level - (driveway goes down a small hill) dont know how much oil is in it or how easy it would be to move - I will have to go look -

We moved one here at our shop that was about full of oil - Real pain - dont want to do that again anytime soon...

Let me talk to him today and I will get back with you on the details.

so do you want a stolen water heater? or just a water heater in general ... you dont heat hot water, you heat water, you dispense hot water, therefore to say it is a "hot water heater" is misleading

San - The tank is 26" wide - 50" high - 60" long - 275 gallon capacity - it is currently 3/4 full -

Its free as long as you take the tank and oil out of the house - he just doesnt want it there anymore -

Let me know what you want to do as there are serveral people now interested - you have first shot though..

Heh, to be honest, I think most are just interested because of the $500 worth of oil that's now in the tank...If possible, give me until Sunday to decide, I have to see if I can line up a few people to help...Thanks...

Thanks, but I must pass...I have a few things going on right now and I can't get things in order...I know you need to get the tank out of there so I can't expect you to wait...I appreciate it though...Thanks again...

San-Man, I manage a landfill and get 275 gal tanks all the time. I might be able to get a good one for you when you need it.
