I'm looking for a quote on a potable water cistern tank. I would like it to be rectangular with the following dimensions: 18'L x 8'W x 5'H. There is no existing cistern; I'll be building a box to contain the cistern to those dimensions.
Hello! I'd be happy to help you with this. One of the most common options for rainwater storage of this kind is one of our Collapsible Cistern Tank for Potable Water. These tanks (also called Pillow Tanks) are flexible, economical, and can be built to almost any specification to store and collect rainwater.
Pillow Tanks can be built to the specification that you have requested above, though they can also be built to several different sizes including sizing based specifically on a capacity. Standard capacities for these tanks can be built anywhere from 1 to 210,000 gallons.
Since you have mentioned that you are specifically looking for something that can be used for drinking water, the fabrics used for your tank will be designed from an FDA or NSF 61 approved material. This will allow the unit to be approved for the safe storage of potable water.
The cistern tank for potable water is easy to use. Once the tank arrives to your location, the exteriors will typically be folded up and tightly packed. In install the tank into your specified sizing unit, simply unfold the tank and place it inside the box. Once in place, tanks can be connected to appropriate hoses and other fittings to meet required storing capacities. Tanks can be connected to downspouts or other hoses depending where you are intending on storing this tank.
