Water Reserve Storage Tanks
FAQ: What should I use for 1 year of home water supply reserve storage?
Question: I have a well and want to keep a reserve of water in the event my well runs dry. Do you have any tanks like that? I have a family of 3 and a 4-bedroom home. I guess I am looking for a 1,000 gallon water tank. In the event my well runs dry and I don't have the $6,500 to drill deeper, I would like to store water for at least one year reserve.
I was thinking that something like the collapsible water tank would be the best option for this kind of storage. Do you have any flexible tanks in this size that could work for this application?
Answer: Our Flexible Water Tanks are some of the most versatile storage tanks available and have capacities ranging anywhere from 25 to 210,000 gallons. This can certainly include a 1,000 gallon tank to help your keep water supply on reserve in the event that your well runs dry.
