    Before I send this tank to the scrappers, I'm wondering if there any good uses for the old pressure tank I used? It's not rusty or damaged, just that it no longer holds pressure.

    I figure I've gotten plenty of good and useful answers on what and how to do things the correct way, so thought I would ask about this.

    Thanks!

    Interesting ideas! I could use the yard roller, and I would need to find some kids to use it as a teeter-totter. I don't have any little ones.

    Put it out by the curb with a sign $200 it will be gone in the morning.

    I used a locomotive air tank stood on end and buried with the top cut off as a grease trap for my leach field. The top I cut off I added 3 legs and it became a raised fire pit.

    I have seen them used as protectors that were half way in bedded around driveways and loading docks to protect gas pipes, oil tanks, stairways .
