    Default Zero bulk tank help

    I am trying to find a conversion chart for a Zero 250 gal tank T-20. I have
    the dipstick but need the inches to litres chart. Anybody have any idea where
    I could locate or ideas where I could try to locate? The Zero company is no
    longer in business. Thanks for input on this.

    If the tank stood on end you could do the conversions your self but being sideways makes for complicated math.
    maybe 50 taps for 2011
    Finally ready to boil when I get enough sap
    I just might be crazy.( make that I know I am)
    Trees all tapped except the ones with 5 feet of snow.

    Rich, yes the dipstick goes to 32". How approximate would it be? Has to be fairly close as it would be used to buy milk.Is the model of the tank on the chart? Thanks so much for now.

    If you Could get a cheap flow meter you could fill the tank and take notes as it fills

    Cheese genie,
    Don't know about you guys 15 miles north of here but all our tanks are calibrated on the farm by the Bureau of Weights and Measures after the tank is in place. I have had several new tanks in my lifetime and none came with a chart from the manufacturer.

    Doug, yes that is true. The people who do it here are in Prince Edward Island, there calibrating until the end of May. I kind of need it before that.
    Might have to do it the hard way... pour some in and measure...pour some in and measure......Thanks.
