Default 3 Pt Aerator Weights

I bought a 3 point aerator and now I am looking for water tanks to mount to the top of the aerator for added weight. Any suggestions on where to purchase? W 20" x L 22" x H ?

What about the square water jugs you would by at the grocery. Might work if you do not use it very often.

Wake boarders all use water ballast in their boats. they are not all hard tanks most are out of a PVC substance so check the sporting section for used water ballast.

I poured my own weights for my aerator, using concrete. I made one for each side and cast a lifting eye in each, so I could lift them to install/remove. I think mine weigh 250# each. You could make 4 smaller ones or any combination/weight.

I made some for a friends aerator once using milk crates, I just lined them with heavy plastic and filled with concrete making sure to leave the handles accesable.

Appreciate the concrete advice, but I too would be interested if you find such jugs.
