We realize that traditional 55 gallon drums are not the best of ways to store water, and
definitely not the easiest. We created the Aquaflex Aquatank for a variety of
reasons: they're easily stored, and affordable, they can be used for emergencies, sporting events, camping expeditions, gardening or greenhouses, farms, RV's, Boats and more, watering livestock and more. The possibilities are endless.
One customer even created a custom passive solar water heater for his log cabin with our
150 Gallon Aquatank 2.
Water storage is not an everyday consideration and is usually taken for granted. Most authorities agree that a minimum of 2-5 gallons of water per person, per day (including cooking, etc.) is essential. To the surprise of many, the need for water is much greater than the need for food. A person can survive without food for a week but without water after only 3-4 days one can be faced with serious problems. Virtually every bodily function requires water.
Storing water can also be a problem. Not all containers are intended for food content. Aquatank emergency water storage containers were specifically created to store a large volume in an easy-to-use food-grade container. Prior to actual use, the Aquatank container only takes up a small amount of space. There is no need to bother with 55-gallon drums, five-gallon pails, or one-gallon milk jugs.
Previously, storing large volumes of water using this method has only been available to military, commercial, and marine users, at a much higher cost. Aquatank containers were created to serve the needs of the average customer at an affordable price.
In fact, the only thing tougher than our Aquatank is our new and improved version, the Aquatank II. The AquaTank II is an enhanced version of the white copolymer Aquatank which is stronger and more resistant. Other enhancement include standard garden hose attachments to make filling and draining easier. Also notable is that the AquaTank is white,
whereas the AquaTank II is yellow. Click on the link on the left side to learn more.
