Default Sealand container....



Advertise Here

I have a friend that is determined to bury his container, i told him i would ask around about the best sealer for this situation, presently he intends to use tar..i suspect there is a better alternative that is easier to apply & not overly expensive.
Any suggestions?

if he isnt going to reinforce him, tell him not to bother sealing it. it would more likely than not collapse anyway, so he shouldn't waste his money sealing it.

Cool seal. It comes in 5 gallon buckets and is used on mobile home metal roofs, barns, etc.
Works like tar, but a lot easier to apply.

If My Pickup Bed cost $400 Twenty Years Ago, a SeaLand Container would probably cost $1500 to RHINO LINER Today!!! Good Stuff, though. Still covering the Bed nearly 98% after Hard use over the many years.

thanx, he had already said liner but that was too expensive. cool seal may be the ticket, im not convinced container is the way to go.

role on rhino liner works well but is expensive . ship paint like the navy uses is made for harsh climates . I have buried those and they need reinforcing or the side pressure will cause them to collapse

tar is easiest and cheapest, look for products that are used to seal flat roofs or swiming, pools or fish ponds,

to reinforce the container either concrete and or some thing, the idea is to remove the pressure you can install a foot thick polystyrene sheet on the sides as that remove the side pressure problem, still need a concrete roof tho

Where in God's name do you find foot thick polystyrene sheet? That would weigh a ton!

I have heard that interior condensation can be a problem when sealing a conex, perhaps that is something to seriously look at. I read that closed cell spray foam insulation is a viable option.

Firstly ,
i'd prpare the hole deeper than spec and put in gravel and a drain .
second,
Either a pond liner or shrink wrap material (Dr.shrink) you can get sizees to fit the need .Really tough stuff I like it a lot . And drape it over the top and leave the bottom to breathe.
Build in ventelators to the out side air ,or you will have a furry green house literally, the interrior will mold very easily.
I would have a rock pile like a pond and fountain that hid my vents.
If he is reenforcing the roof and walls , Id be currious as to what his planns are .
Zink annodes on the steel will distract the corrosion effect , if done right tha Zink will deterriorate noticably , and that is a good thing .
The drain insures a path for any incomming ground water so it can't accumulate. do not rely on some pump .

good luck

if he is patient and looks long enough, maybe he can find one of the reinforced fiberglass containers. it would need a little more interior bracing, but much easier to seal up. and minimal corrosion issues.
just a thought.
