Get a 5 or 3 gal bucket and count how many times you need to fill it before the tank is full.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Then water the garden, yard, or house plants with it lol. Its not really all that much water to waste considering the amount most people use daily. Just realize that those measurement will be calculated as square shaped, not hexagonal. You will probably be best caculating the volume of your hexagon in square inches then going to gallons.
