Tire dunk tank is shop-built
Submerge a tire entirely, and it won’t take long to see where the bubbles are coming from (and, therefore, where the hole is). My watering tank is supported by pieces of 4×6-inch lumber and a sheet of plywood. There are lengths of flat iron braced to a vertical arm to push the tire down. Countweights on a cable in the handle make it easy to lift.
