Emergency Water Storage Tanks

Protect your family from water shortages or outright shutoffs with emergency water storage tanks. These simple containers come in 13 different colors, but most people appreciate the light-blue hue. In an emergency, you know that this color indicates fresh water. Emergency drinking water storage tanks come with two spigots for easy access. One bulkhead is perfectly located about 14 inches off the floor. Fill any small container with water when you access this spigot.

The majority of emergency drinking water tanks can fit through the average doorway, including the 100-, 125- and 150-gallon models. Keep the tank indoors or opt for an outdoor location. You have the option of adding SunShield to these home emergency water storage tanks. Every model, however, always comes with BPA-free polyethylene and food-grade certifications. Polytank-Mart.com is pleased to supply you with water storage tanks for emergencies, including our largest model at 1,150 gallons.

Why use an Emergency Water Storage Tank?

“Having an ample supply of clean water is a top priority in an emergency. A normally active person needs to drink at least two quarts (half gallon) of water each day. People in hot environments, children, nursing mothers, and ill people will require even more.”

"Food and Water in an Emergency", FEMA and the American Red Cross, 2006 (PDF / 824 KB)

Our 100-, 125-, and 150-gallon Emergency Water Storage Tanks are designed to be thin enough to fit through the average 32-inch wide doorway and allow simple installation in any home or business, keeping drinkable water available indoors during a prolonged interruption of tap service.

All Emergency Water Tanks ship with a brass spigot and a ball valve with hose end fitting, which fit onto either 3/4" fittings, so you can, for example, fill a five-gallon bucket (not included) without needing to detach the hose.

Do I need the heavy duty variant?

That depends on your situation and requirements.

The heavier weight version is certainly an upgrade over the standard model and offers significantly increased durability compared with the standard tank's already robust construction. If the tank needs to be placed in a basement at risk of flooding, if it's in a space where large objects or buildings might knock into it, or if your bulk water storage will be placed close to a fault line, upgrading your tank is likely worthwhile to ensure to have access to clean water when you need it most.

If you plan to install your emergency tank in an area where those aren't considerations, the standard weight version is available.

*All Tanks of all colors are BPA-Free and manufactured with resin that complies with U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulation 21CFR 177.1520 (1) 3.1 and 3.2 for storage of potable water
