Bladder Water Tank and Grey Water Questions

Hello All!

I am looking for water tanks now and am having trouble finding reasonably piced tanks that will fit the space I have allotted and be shipped in a timely manner.

I will have a kitchen sink and shower hooked up for pluming with a compost toilet, so no black tank is needed.

I have found a 21 gallon holding tank for my grey water here-> https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

The tank fits my budget, shipping requirements and sizing requirements.

As far as fresh water tanks I was contemplating using a bladder water tank such as this one: _->

Has any one tried a bladder tank before? And at 30 gallons for a fresh water tank, will a 21 gallon grey water tank be enough?

Thank you so much for the help!

Right now, I'm using a 7 gal water jug available at Wally's for <$40. It lasts me a bit more than a month. I will ultimately be installing a 50 gal potable and a 50 gal grey water tank. I don't have a black water tank because I use a composting commode.

I am planning on having a larger gray than fresh. If you don't have a place to dump, or the tank hits full while your taking a shower, it's going to back up into the lowest point (probably the shower). I am assuming that you are going to be piping the urine diverter to the gray(unless you are sending it to different jug). So a 30gl fresh tank I would think a 35 gray?
I have seen sealed poly barrels in the 30-35 gl range for $25.00
Don't know if they will fit your space.. just throwing it out there.
