    Hey Guys,

    I don't know about you, but I rarely ever need 3 huge 50 gallon rubbermaid brute trash cans... but I'm all done with my cycle and I need to export some nitrates with a 80-90% water change, meaning I'll need to employ at least three 50 gallon brute cans. But I really doubt I'll ever need them again, unless I have a crash, need to move, or do another hugemongous water change.

    So I'm thinking of basically buying the three, then just sharing them with the club whenever people need them. Almost like a DBTC except the trash cans can't be fragged.

    Kind of like a tool repository or something like that.

    I'm sure one of us at any given time would need one or two of these honking huge cans.

    Would DBTC then stand for Dont Break my Trash Cans?

    Eileen,
    would it be possible for me to borrow those trash can's. Finishing up on my chemical cycle and want to do one large water change. I really wish I had a cheap 50 gal pond.

    tim, I have two 55g brute's too. I actually bit the bullet and just bought them. Who knows when you'll need them again?

    I'm going to need them back by next Thursday, and I'm going out of town this Friday, let me know =)

    I don't know if I would trust the wheels on the 50 gallon square cans, but that may just be paranoia on my part.

    I have got one 32 gallon Brute with wheels if anyone needs it. :D

    I don't think this thread was ever for getting rid of the brute trash cans. It was a thread about seeing if it would be a good idea to share them. Maybe ask if you can borrow some?
