No rubber gasket will last if you get a potent cleaning solution in the tank. Are you going to heat the cleaning solution? I keep my hot tank in a shed outside the main working area. The fumes from the hot solution can get intense..

Get saturdays paper and look for used dishwasher - usually $25-$35. Give it a shot of Simple Green or your favorite... and let it rock. Don't use the one in you kitchen!
