Build Your Own Tank

topic posted Sat, September 9, 2006 - 5:23 AM by  Charlie
I am wondering if any one knows where I can find plans on building my own tank. It would be preferable if I can source the parts rather than buying a kit.

Much thanks.

    There is an advertiser on google who has tank plans for $20. I have not purchased the plans yet, but I do intend to. I recently opened a floatation center and have Samadhi tanks. If you intend to use the tank for any extended period of time, I would spend a little for a pre-fab tank. There are subtleties that can become quite pronounced when floating. Things like condensation dripping from the ceiling can really affect your experience. If whatever plans you use doesn't take into consideration condensation, simply figure a way to put a heater into the top to keep from condensation forming. I also moderate SF-Float Matrix if you have any more questions. Best of luck.

    May love continue to expand your Creation,

        I did recently purchased the plans from I do not recommend these plans as they are very hard to follow. The diagrams are not very clear. I do have a copy available at my center. You are more than welcome to view them, but they are copyrighted, so I can't pass them on. I have been talking to Samadhi about a low cost tank. They used to carry a cardboard tank, of all things. They said that nobody would buy it. I am pushing for them to design another. The tanks shouldn't be as expensive as they are. Again, best of luck. I would like to hear what your plans are.

          I thought it would be good to build a tank at home and am interested in seeing what is out there, I will still have to sort a number of things before this becomes a reality though. Thanks to all that have offered info.

            If you check out my bio it will tell you about the tank I'm building with a photo. I estimate $600.00 before hardware.

              That looks like quite an installation, it has got my mind churning with ideas.

              Thanks a lot.

              Please be sure to let us know how it works when completed.

                This week I'm working on the door and the roof (trying to get a design that won't drip and such). I've been taking a bunch of pictures as I go and when I get time I'll start putting them up in my site.
