Dear forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Using the Capacity and volume conversion page we can find that 275 gallons are equal to 36.76 cubic feet.

If we are talking about cubic container, by taking the cubic root of 36.75 we get approximately 3.33 feet. That means the container of 3.33x3.33x3.33 feet would be enough.

If your container does not necessarily have to be cubic, you can use almost any dimentions for the "base" and calculate the third dimention. For example you can make the base 5x5 feet, in this case the height of the container would be 36.75/(5*5) = 1.47 feet.
