Default Any suggestions?

This was left behind when we bought this house. I think it was some type of water treatment system or maybe for the above ground pool that the peaple had.

Anyway, I would like to do something with it, but can't figure out a use for it.

Is it stainless?

Is that the only hole in it?

It would make a great water tank for a dog box/trailer!

It would hold 23.5 gallons of water completely full. Good idea for sure.

The rusty area looks like it has a crack in it which could be a problem on an air tank.

I think it is stainless. The hole is threaded and looks pretty air tight.

Lots of black powder, a fuse and a fishing hole sounds good to me.

If it would hold air the portable air tank would be a great idea

I am going to mount it on the front of my coast trailer and use it for a mini shower when at the coast fishing.

That is a good idea Sean, you could tap another hole in and install an air valve to pressure it up like a sprayer tank.
