Are 2nd hand IBC tanks safe to use as water butts?
Giant water butts cost £200-£500, but 2nd hand 1000 litre "IBC" tanks are £20-£40 on ebay. Tempting, but the adverts often don't say what they originally contained. I don't want to poison my plants. Some people seem to store fuel in them. Is it possible to clean them out sufficiently for use watering garden, or should I avoid?
