    Looks correct. But real life is a lot more difficult than paint. LOL. You're going to need a lot of reinforcement on the sides of the tank if you're using Polypropylene.

    Agreed. 1 liter of water weight 1kg. You tank volume will be 175 cubic feet. That is approximately 5000 liters of volume. 1 liter of water weighs 1Kg. So you are looking at 5000kg or 11023lbs. You will have tremendous force pushing against the sides of the tank. I would definitely engineer your tank with that in mind. Obviously, make sure the floor that the tank will go on can also support this as well.

    Have someone draw it up in SolidWorks first so you can have a stress analysis will probably not build it after you see the results...

    The reinforcements you would need to do making that thing out of PP... Its gonna look like its done in metal anyway.
