Easy-to-fill water tank holds 6.6 fl. oz. of water that`s easy to measure with the included water cup.
For square and rectangular tanks, all you have to do is measure the length, width, and depth of the tank, then multiply them together and divide by 231, the number of cubic inches in a gallon.
For large properties with significant landscaping and a large home we recommend a minimum of 10,000 gallons. For smaller properties and homes that don`t have to worry about fire considerations, 2500-3000 gallons is a common tank tank that will give you plenty of water for daily needs.
