WARNING!
DON'T EVER CONSIDER THIS COMAPANY FOR ANY OF YOUR PLASITC NEEDS!!!!
Custom Plastic Fabricators in Fort Meyers Florida. They made me a tank - It leaked, made me pay return shipping. Repaired (NOT REPLACED) the leaking one. It leaked worse. They repaired it so poorly they blamed UPS for the problem and then completely rejected my calls and emails when UPS rejected their claim. If it wasn't for my credit card company giving me a refund I would have suffered a total $$ loss. I am going back to aluminum out of pure frustration. Spent the last 2 months of the season without a fresh water tank

Wow, that sux.

I do alot of plastic fabrication of tanks and structures. It is not that difficult. The repairing side is just as easy if you know what you are doing.

You're right for posting it here. Boating is too expensive as it is without that aggravation.
Glad the credit card company protected financially

UPDATE.

It appears that customplasticfabricators.com uner the direction of Lana Warren has gone out of business. Website is down and phone numbers are disconnected.
Big surprise.......

I wound up buying an aluminum tank from Luthers Welding out of Rhode Island. Best price, Great service and Great product.

Is the inside of the tank coated? Aluminum will impart a taste into your water wont it?

yes it's coated, but in my opinion holding tank water never tastes right. When I want a nice fresh tasting glass of water it comes from another 2 1/2 gallon tupperware type container we keep for that.
