Hi,

Is there any risk of bad things happening if I were to use a 5-gallon brand new plastic gasoline tank to store chlorine?

The gas can would be out of sight so no risk of someone accidentally filling their car with chlorine period

I would plan to rinse the gas can out a number of times before using it even though it's brand new


Thanks
Rich

Other than it being poured into an engine there's no risk I can think of. Rinse isnt needed in my opinion but it wont hurt. Id still label it bleach just incase...
