Why 2 Different Tanks and What's the Difference...
Numerous customers either commented or complained about the heating element and tube for the thermostat being right in the tank.
This made it difficult to stir their solution without banging against these fixtures and possibly damaging them.
For customers that need to re-heat their solution (Large Quantity), they need the heater system and have learned to use caution when stirring.
For other customers, they use all or most of their solution at once and preferred a Lye Storage Tank (And possibly use the tanks for mixing other things).
We listened to both views and decided the best way to solve this dilemma was to have 2 different tanks.
Basically, the difference is that 1 Tank has only an outlet for the ball valve to dispense the solution and the other tank has the complete heating system and ball valve outlet.
All of our electrical components are UL Listed and/or UL Recognized

Safety Precautions when using Lye
Sodium hydroxide is VERY caustic and must be used with care.
It can burn holes in clothes and leave burn marks on the skin. If you take care when using it, you shouldn’t have any problems.
Lye looks like water once it is dissolved, you must take every precaution and keep it away from kids and pets.
You should also never stand directly over lye when mixing it with water. It will release fumes into the air for about that can be harmful.
Use gloves, eye protection, and a respirator when you mix lye.
Cover your work area with newspaper, then carefully fold up and seal the used newspaper in a trash bag when you are done.
Keep vinegar handy. Vinegar, an acid, counteracts lye if you do get burned.
Make soap near a water source so you can flush the affected area if needed.
Stand back a little as you mix your lye into water, never lean over the mixture.
Use heat-proof containers (Our storage tanks are very safe, made using stainless steel).
Wash your hands and arms when you are done mixing lye. A single grain of lye can still produce pain and itching.
Never leave your lye unattended.
