I was wondering if anyone has tried to make a stock tank out of a thermal mass of a RMH for maybe inside a barn. Is there inherent problems with this idea? I'm sure I would need a sealent or a liner for the cob but anything else?

I have actually been thinking about it, but the costs may be kinda high trying to store water in something that you make. Making something water tight is tough, making something water tight then heating it with fire is even tougher. This is a good idea for a thread though. Start throwing out ideas and somewhen we may find a completely viable idea.

Easy enough if you run the bench tubes under ground below a standard metal tank.
