Might have to reinforce the tank internally with some braces.

Would work if you were building a LectroSUX though.

Mount a couple vac motors on top.
 
a techno viking can crush a 50 gallon drum just as easy as jimmys empty head.

( you should be over on mb warning all of the non virtues of electrosuck machines errr myteees )

you have to plumb the round tank correct if not your going to have water getting sucked into the blower

it needs to be braced because of he flat bottom and top will have to be enforced so it does not cave in

better to look for a used waste tank
