I should also clarify that the FRESH in my case is never used for driinking, only washing.

Agree heartily. Also there are several suppliers with reasonable prices.

Using plastic is only viable if you can use a stock size, tons of which are available.

Dave Park, who originated the question is a skilled builder so he must have in mind a special size.

Metal is the only reasonable way in that case. A plastic blow molded tank would require paying for a mold and if you need to bend sheet goods you need an giant oven so special size plastic will be cost prohibitive.
