Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bolicious Bo (senior chocolate lab) loves his downsized pool. He used to have a Rubbermaid 300 gallon trough as his private pool with a added on ramp. But between age and his arthritis he had to downgrade. Bo is satisfied!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, exactly what we needed! This was perfect for our 4 little duckies! It DOES NOT have a drain so we added our own for easy draining every night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’d Buy This Again This is a very heavy duty tank that I expect to last for a long time. I like the lower sides which make it easier for my pups to get into and chill out. There’s no drain but I’ve got a section of garden hose I’ll use to siphon most of the water out. It’s light enough to tip over to get the remaining water out and clean. No problem bring it home either. It fit in the back of my Ford Edge easily. I’d buy this again and would recommend this product to anyone that has a use for it.

Does this stock tank have a drain ? A hole for the de icer? I don’t want to start messing around with drilling my own holes. 

Asked by: Hayescamp
Customer can drill a hole for a drain -this will void the warranty. Drain should be installed in the flat recessed area on the long side of the tank. drill a 2" hole. customers were surveyed and advised they do not use the drain that they typically "tip" the small 50-gal units over to empty.

Does the tank have an emptying valve? Worried about trying to dump out it by lifting it over.

Asked by: Ernie Beekeeper
No, this does not have a drain plug or valve. However, there is space on the front for a hole to be drilled.
