5000 gallon Collapsible Tanks
FAQ: Are collapsible tanks available in smaller sizes too?
Question: I am looking for a 5000 gal water tank and was interested in knowing more about your collapsible units. I will need this tank to store drinking water. I am actually looking for tanks 1000 gallon, 2500 gallon and 5000 gallon in size. I see that you have very large tanks and only wanted to make sure that smaller tanks were also an option. Do you have these sizes?
Answer: Sizing is one of the biggest topics customers come to us with questions about. While we do list several standard sizing options on our site (usually 130 to 210,000 gallons), a collapsible tank can be made in any capacity from 1 to 250,000 gallons.
Small Capacity Collapsible Tanks
One of our most frequently sought after Collapsible Water Tanks are in smaller capacities between 100 and 5000 gallons. These tanks are just as durable as some of our larger units and are a great choice for drinking water storage, areas that have bulk jobs, or even rain water collection. Some of the common applications you will find these tanks being used in include the following:
- Construction Site Drinking Water Storage
- Residential Water Storage
- Emergency Water Supply
- Water Storage for Rural Areas
- Rain Water Collection and Storage
- Brine Water Storage
- Short Term Water Storage during Pool Cleanings
Collapsible Water Tank Sizing
The general construction for a collapsible tank will include low profiles with a height of not more than four feet (4'). This may be adjusted as needed, but typically tanks can be as large as 50,000 gallons, and still feature this fairly small height.
To get a general idea of the filled sizes you are looking at for a collapsible tank in smaller capacities, please check out some of the sizes listed below. These will show our available listed sizing for capacities equal to or close to the range you have requested.
This can give you a guideline to the sizing requirements you will need for your space.
- 1,100 gallons: Sizing 9' L x 8'W x 2' H
- 2,600 gallons: Sizing 15' L x 11' W x 2.1' H
- 5,000 gallons: Sizing 17' L x 16' W x 2.5' H
Again, this is just a general guide. Please always feel free to provide us with specific sizing or requirements you may need.
Drinking Water Tank Materials
Like all our collapsible tanks, the 5000 gal water tank can be made from almost any fabric and thickness. When used specifically for drinking water, tanks will always have an inner liner fabric that is NSF 61 and FDA approved for safe drinking water storage.
