    Generally recovery tanks weigh about 10 pounds. If yours is at 28 pounds, put it in your back yard and crack the vapor valve. After a weekend it will be at Tare weight.

    Do each one for a year or so. See what you like. Also, be an install apprentice for a few years. Learn how to bend tin, etc. That stuff is golden when I look to hire techs.
