Try your local importer of olives. I bet they have a problem trying to get rid of them. The ones around here are sometimes dark brown or blue but it is a long way to send back empty plastic containers.

1000 Ltr liquid crate. Ideal.

They come with a tap. I'd be tempted to rig one up as a header tank if poss. and run a larger than garden (32mm maybe?) hose down to a pair of muffs. That way, you'll get a clean reliable supply.

Trying to manoeuvre the leg of a 250 into a tub isn't too easy and the exhaust will soon turn a limited amount of captive water into smelly grey yuk. Also, the salt is being re-circulated, albeit, very dilute.
