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.

I was impressed with the brass ball valves supplied (much better than any of the other tanks I researched) . They have a full opening allowing high flow while not bulky or difficult to operate. I recommend this product.
One important note I forgot before I setup the tank was to pre-wash it! It even TELL you to wash it before you use it, here is why the inside is still processed so it has some scrap plastic shavings inside that need to be washed out. so clean the tank before you bring it inside the house other wise your going to be dragging it back out to do so!!! still I don't care high quality way better then 55gl drums way easier to cycle for sure!
I other important note, DO NOT USE A GARDEN HOSE TO FILL !!!!! this is a very important part that is easy to also over look. IF you miss the print you need to ONLY use a DRINKING WATER RATED HOSE!!! this is IMPORTANT!!! Why I looked at a normal garden hose and read "THIS PRODUCE CONTAINS LEAD DO NOT DRINK FROM!!!" after reading that I was like holy S*** I really do need a hose rated for drinking water!!!
Last issue I had which has nothing to do with the product, I need a male to male hose connector because of my setup.
product say 260 gl shipped to me with a label 275 gl either way that more then 4x55.
last thought are I am now thinking about getting some kind of pump for cycling the wast water to the lawn from the basement.
