Grey Water Collapsible Tank for Emergencies
FAQ: What grey-water tank's best for use in emergency relief camps?
Question regarding a grey water tank for emergency setup: I am interested in a grey water tank. I am heading to Japan to assist with relief efforts in response to a tsunami. I want to set up a shower and wash area. Do you have any tank that can help with those applications? I would need something collapsible so that I could easily ship it to my required location.
Answer: Thanks for contacting Portable Tanks, a division of GEI Works. We're happy to help with your emergency relief efforts. There are a couple of different options you could consider depending on the type of water storage and shower supply you are looking to achieve. Tank options will include both closed top bladders for bulk water storage, as well as open top models that could function as a shower or wash area.
Open Top Storage Tanks
Onion Tank: The onion tank is a self-rising water storage tank designed to store large or small amounts of water. These tanks are sized in capacities ranging anywhere from 25 to 20,000 gallons to successfully store water in your location. Tanks may be used as water storage areas or as open top locations to collect water during a shower or wash down.
Frame Tank: Very similar in both design and application, the frame tank is another open top product commonly used for both water storage and shower water collection. Tanks will feature a folding frame design that can quickly collect water during a wash down.
Closed Storage Tanks
If you are looking for something that can be used for more of a storage purpose, we do also offer a Collapsible Bladder Tank that can be used for easy water storage in your location. These tanks can be built in sizes anywhere from 25 to 210,000 gallons to store grey water in your location. Collapsible tanks can be folded up when not in use for light weight shipping and transportation to your location.
Collapsible tanks are also available with several different fitting options to allow connection to hoses, drainage ports, and other requirements to hookup to your shower. Please let us know if what size fittings you require, and we would be happy to see if we can meet your requirements.
