1: "flat bottom"
2: 1" DIAMETER of the tubing

4: Width leave blank (for a rectangular tank)
5: Volume in Gallons "5"
Then click on the button for "Height" which yielded 1471 inches or 122.66 feet.
I love this tank calculator. For round tanks, mentally picture the tank (like a PVC pipe) standing on end, even if the tank will be laying on it's side. This calculator is what opened my eyes to the small amount of liquid a 10" or 12" diameter PVC pipe would hold. Needless to say, we very quickly dumped the idea of using a big PVC pipe as a holding tank. I have the web page saved on my computer desktop (Save WebPage as... Webpage, complete) and do not have to be online to use the calculator.
