Default Water change setup help

Hey everyone,
I'm looking to make a nice tidy water change setup. I have done some googling and the cleanest setups that I have come across are all using large poly water tanks. They seem to be readily available in the states but I'm having a hard time finding smaller tanks availble in Canada. I'm thinking 55gallon. I can find lots that are gigantic but I dont need a 650 gallon tank lol. Anyone know where I can find a canadian supplier? I could order from the states but then there's duty and conversion etc etc.
Here is a link to a picture of what I'm after. Thanks everyone!

Talk to these guys, an Alberta company, they’ll put the holes for fittings wherever you’d like. The tanks are rotomolded in one piece then they cut the holes where you want them, or you could do it yourself.

His waterchange vats were too big for my application. How much water do you guys have on hand premade?
I was thinking 50ish gallons of fresh and 50ish of saltwater would be more than sufficient.

I would do a keyword search with aquaculture or foodsafe or potable water container or something like that...maybe http://www.zeebest.com/products/rectangular-tanks/ or http://www.polywest.ca/norwesco-poly...thylene-tanks/ comes up...and lotsa aquaculture stuff out there Canada wide.

I have 2 X 44 Gallon Brute garbage cans. But with my water volume, it's not enough. I wish I had more like 60-100 Gallons each. I always thought of having Glass tanks made up by concept. They would probably be cheaper than some of the plastic options. 24X24X24 (60 Gal) or even 24X24X36 (90 Gal).

I think for your application, the cheapest option would be the 44 Gallon Brutes, or those 50 gallon blue rain barrels. I really enjoy my brutes, just not big enough.

Peavey Mart sells a variety of poly tanks. I got a pair of 150 gal tanks. One ro and one salt mix. They do have smaller ones. I think they were around $140 each.
