Split water tank!

If it's not one thing it's another! Found out my fresh water tank split. Now trying to find a replacement and haven't been able to find one the size I have. Mine is 52" long, 11" wide and 12" deep or high.
It holds 35 gals. I have no extra space for width or depth and everything I find is larger in those area. I could use a lower gal. but can't still can't find anything to fit in the place I have. . So frustrated, was planning to leave this coming Wed or Thurs. . Anyone know of any place that custom makes them??? That would probably be high $ if there was such a place. No junk places around. My Delta is from 1979 also, I'm in a quandry here!!!! Any ideas from anyone out there. You're all so clever at improvising, maybe you can come up with some ideas....
Thx for reading...

Don't know if you'll get one by Wednesday, but try here: http://www.thetankssource.com/sandie...d=0&Itemid=703

Or this place, they have a store in Georgia: Water Tanks, Plastic Tanks, Poly Tanks, Storage Tanks

If they don't have one tank to fit your space, you might find two that would fit and then you could plumb them together to reach the capacity you wish.

AdventureRV.net. Finally found this one, I will have to settle for the 20 gal. instead of the 35 gal. But it will fit, We figured we could squeeze the extra inch for width in. I hope, fingers crossed here. Thanks for all of the help and suggestions to all of you.
1 x Barker Fresh Water Polyethylene Tank 20 Gal. (S078-881023) = $105.86
------------------------------------------------------
Sub-Total: $105.86

Once you get the old one out, and the current emergency covered, you might look into methods available to repair the tank that's split, then replace it into the RV at some point...

Sorry, but from what I could make out from pics, unclear as to damage area - but too bad it can't be repaired...

Before you throw it out, try using the plastic welding technique with metal mesh reinforcement. You just might salvage the situation.

Thanks to one and all for the responses, I did get a new tank, but Son made some miscalculations and now has to 'jerry rig' it to make it work. So may need the suggestions you all have posted. Thx again, irv2 is the best!

Flex-Set by Marinetex, I've repaired tanks w/it. You might need a patch, but many types of plastic will span a gap. Great stuff for many RV repairs. I had a leaky brass hose nozzle, did a wipe of Flex-Set around the leaking crimped seam, now it holds 60psi. don't think it would do that for a big gobby repair on a plastic tank, but then the tank won't hold real pressure anyway and it doesn't have to. You just have to figure out what to use as a patch.
