been thinking of using poly type tote tanks (used in all types of Mfg.
for liquid storage).
I would build a insulated housing around the tank(s)

has anyone ever thought/tried this type of setup?

Been using 350USG Poly Totes, around my neighborhood for years.
One of the Fish Processing Plants, local, buys Sorbital in them,
and they have to PAY to get rid of the totes. Locals can get them
from the Processor for free, and they make a really good Potable
Water Storage Tank.  The have a 2" NPT  Nipple on the output of the
Tank Valve, that couples up to a Galvinized Reducer to 3/4 Pipe
for water systems.  One neighbor has three of these in Parallel,
that he fills with a 1 1/2" PVC Pipleline and Honda Pump, from
his creek, then uses a DanKoff Solar 12Vdc Vane Pump and Bladder
Tank for his Pressurized Domestic Water System for his cabin.

Has/is anyone using them to store hotwater(120/160 deg.)...
anyone know if they can withstand any heat...if so how much.

My thinking is to connect 2/3 of the together for 600/900 gallon
thermal(hot water) storage from the solar panels.
I'm looking to install a solar heat system(space heat) to get away
from Propane(sorry Hank Hill)
