we bought two galvanized livestock water tanks from a local feed store. One is five feet in diameter and the other is six feet in diameter. We then nested them, leaving a gap on both sides and on the bottom. We filled this gap with that canned spray foam to create an insulated barrier (the last three inches around the top we filled with concrete for a better aesthetic). For plumbing we simply provided two openings for filling, draining and circulating. by billie

Barley straw cleans ponds and it's safe for fish.It's also safe for livestock. We use barley straw bags in our horse tanks. As long as you change them regularly (see the label on yours for info), they work great!
