A Practical and Durable Solution for Harvesting Rainwater
Looking for a way to build a rainwater collection system? Would you like to know how to start and what you will need? Portable Tanks, a division of GEI Works can help answer these questions and help you set your project up for success.
Collapsible tanks (also known as Rainwater Storage Bags) are a great choice for a rainwater collection system. These tanks have been used under decks, in crawl spaces, and even in basements for rain water harvesting projects. In addition, they are also highly durable and UV resistant for use in outdoor locations.
Rainwater Collection System
Typically, rainwater is collected off the top of a roof or downspout. This water is then directed into the tank using inlets. Water may be pumped out of the tanks using standard fittings such as bulkheads with cam lock, storz, or threaded adapters. These will attach to hoses to discharge water from the tank.

Compared to other options, collapsible rain water tanks can be an extremely economical and reliable option. This type of tank benefits from having a low profile and large capacities. These features allow it to fit in tight spaces such as under porch decks, in basements, and in various crawl spaces that may be present in your location. When empty, the rain water tanks lays completely flat and can be brought into areas that have an opening hard tanks could not get through.
Some common advantages you will see for collapsible rain water tanks include:
- Long-Lasting Construction
- Flexible Fitting Options
- NSF 61 and FDA Approval Options
- Sizes up to 210,000 gallons
- Multiple Rainwater Reuse Options as tank may be connected to:
