Check tractor supply website, they might have them or another type of feed and seed store.

If you call Twister Display at 800-637-3656, they will price you just the tub. It is rather high for just a tub (around $1000) but it will have the window already installed. I am about to bit the bullet and order a Easy Dunker 2 Conversion Kit for the spring loaded seat for $600. That is sort of steep for just a latch but I hate the old vise grips we use now. Looks home-made and works when it wants to.

I just picked up a Dunk Tank (old style with the vise grip for 1k)....needs a little cleaning, but otherwise in good shape. Already have it booked twice (picked it up yesterday!!) The tank is a 400 gallon fiberglass in pretty good shape....a fresh coat of paint will go a long way.

I picked mine up used also. I painted the tub blue (was purple) but it keeps scratching up. The frame is in great shape, only needed rewiring and new tail lights. But I still hate the vise grip latch. We were at a church event with it last week and the pastor kept complaining about it so my son and I stayed there with it to keep him happy. Once you get the hang of how to latch it, it works pretty good, but it is a ROYAL PAIN.I paid $350 for my Dunk Tank from another rental company ( they got a new one)and have rented it out 9 times in 3 months.($100.00 each rental) I take great pride in ALL my units EXCEPT this one. This is why I was thinking about getting the new spring loaded latch seat.($600)


Let me know how the paint job goes on the tub. I would suggest new paint but same color. This way when it scratches, it will not be as noticeable.

Our vise grip seems to be in pretty good working order.....As far as the paint goes, the tank was a dirty white (fiberglass), so I cleaned it, primed it with "Gripper Primer", then 2-3 coats of a quality exterior latex (teal colored). Hopefully the paint will hold up better on the fiberglass as opposed to the plastic tanks. I'll post up pics when the refirb is done.
