Drinking Water Tanks for a Village

FAQ: What's the best tank for storing a village's drinking water?

water storage bladderQuestion: Hello. I am looking at drinking water storage tanks for village use. We are currently looking for an economical way to store bulk amounts of drinking water for villages in remote locations. Would you have a tank that could serve this purpose? The village holds approximately 50 people that would need to use the tank for their water supply. We were thinking 500 or maybe 1000 gallons.

Answer: For bulk drinking water storage, one of the most flexible options available would be the collapsible water tank. This tank is well equipped to handle bulk storage (1 to 210,000 gallons) and has an extremely flexible exterior that allows tanks to be easily transported, shipped, and installed on your location.

Another great option is a corrugated tank - more information below!
