Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
TANK COMPOSITION AND CONSTRUCTION: All 260 gallon tanks is made without BPA, is food safe, is high capacity and structurally sound, has two valves for easy use and water rotation, and fits through doorways. This tank comes with everything you need to store water at home: a food safe drinking hoses, a coupling, and long term water purification systems. The tanks are made as one composite piece at 700 degrees F by rotational molding. They are molded from a polyethylene composite independently certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF). The tanks are molded as a one piece composite and have no seams. Some ask if there is a seam around the top, but there is not. The line that appears to be a seam around the top is a seam in the metal tank mold, not the plastic tank.

Almost had to temporarily remove a section of overhead duct chase in front of the door to the basement because when I measured I did not take into account the fact that the tank would have to be tipped off vertical to pass under the top of the doorway. So factor that into your planning. Water weighs about 8 pounds per gallon, so full, these tanks weigh over a ton and need to be on a very substantial floor, such as concrete, which is why I put them in the basement.
I love the fact that I now have 550 gallons of pure, potable water stored in about half the floor space that four 55-gallon drums used to occupy. Half the floorspace, and over twice the volume. The top hand hole is large enough to reach your arm in with a garden hose for clean out, and the second spout above the floor makes drawing water from the tank easy. The tank and valves are all top quality materials that will last many years. Highly recommended.

The problem of water leakage from these plastic pieces happened immediately! I used teflon tape twice with the same results of water leakage. Than I used aqurium silicone, let it dry for 3 days, however, it still had a slow drip of water. Enouigh to have to put a pan under it.
THIS IS A VERY BAD DESIGN. Plastic threaded with brass just doesnt work!!!
Mine did not come with the hose and water preserver by accident but customer service quickly sent them to me no problem. The flexible hose that comes with it should be screwed to the bottom faucet and the faucet open to fill the tank because the hose is made of a drinking water safe cloth type material and if you just try to drape it over the hole in the top of the tank it will come flying out because the hose is floppy and not stiff.
Not too heavy empty at around 70lbs I think it is but very awkward to move around by yourself, if you put 2 straps around it for handles that is very helpful. Nice to have for peace of mind. Water preserver makes water last 5 years, maybe more but is easy enough to empty and refill tank every 2 years with untreated tap water. (no water preserver). I put mine on a piece of plywood on a concrete floor, it weighs around 2,160 lbs full!
