    100+ gallon water tank?

    Wondering if any one with multiple machine install experience can tell me of a 100+ gallon upgrade for my Blueline Bluewave machine. I don't think sapphire scientific makes the one for my machine anymore. Maybe @wuznmee can shine some light on the subject. Thanks for any feedback.
