I agree with what you’re saying but your numbers are off. Universal Gold goes for about $40 per gallon. A 5 gallon bucket of universal gold is only about $200.Ready for some foam fun facts?
A sealed container of foam has no shelf life. Once you dump it into a rig’s tank, the clock starts. Foam concentrate will harden from its gel form.
I’m wondering if that plays a role in tank size. Cost also factors in to it. A 5 gallon bucket of Universal Gold is around $1,000. Ideally you would dump the tank after a year but with the heightened EPA concerns you can’t just flow a hand line until the tank is drained anymore.
