Convert dip tank to rinse tank

TroubleTrouble Posts: 327Member ✭✭✭
Moving up to a bigger tank and thinking about converting my old 4 ft tank to a heated rinse tank. I was thinking of keeping all the tank functions intact so I have a back up tank if I ever need one, and using my sump pump from my existing rinse tank. Any ideas?

    Sounds like a great idea, I've thought about doing the same thing myself if I ever move up in the world.

    @Trouble not the worst idea I have ever heard, but it is a big rinse tank. If space is no issue then thats not a problem. I am thinking you are going to waste some energy on heating all that water all the time. Maybe put something in there to displace the majority of it?

    My small Rubbermaid trough rinse tank gets full quick so the 4 ft tank would be nice. I wasn't going to fill it all the way I plan on using my sump pump in my existing tank hooked to some K-ball nozzles. Its hot down here so it doesn't take too long to heat up. Hoping someone ad done it before so I could get some ideas.

    Drop a dirty pump into the tank connect it to some spray heads & recirculate the water. As Jim would say, "easy peasy" or something like that

    Do you have a picture of Rubbermaid rinse tank and how you have it set up 'm trying to gather ideas for a small rinse station myself and not really sure where to start

    @SingleAction52 How big of a pump are you running with 24 heads?
