The Aquatank is the ideal water storage alternative to 55-gallon or smaller drums. They are compact and easily stored, using no more space than a pizza box before being filled with water. Aquatank water container bags are manufactured with FDA-approved, food-grade material as an economical solution for storing and transporting water. They can be re-used again and again.
Water becomes an even more precious commodity after a natural disaster such as a hurricane or earthquake or after a man-made problem. Water supplies can become contaminated, and the loss of electricity can prevent the running of an electric pump. Reliable storage of emergency water supplies is thus an essential component of hurricane preparedness. The Aquatank was designed with this problem in mind.
The general consensus is that 1 or 2 gallons of water per person per day is necessary for earthquake or hurricane preparedness. This number does not include water for cooking or bathing. In the past, a common emergency water storage solution was a 55-gallon drum. However, a traditional 55-gallon drum is too bulky and space consuming. Even when empty, a 55-gallon drum can monopolize the storage capacity of some buildings.

- Boats or Yachts
Aquatank water containers are reusable and can be folded or rolled up until needed again. There is no need to bother with 5 gallon drums, 5 gallon pails, or 1 gallon milk jugs. (Plus, unlike some other water storage takes, Aquatank does not need to be placed in a bathtub. This frees up valuable space that can be used to store additional water to be used for toilets and bathing.)

Note: We have discontinued our original white Aquatanks. The material used for the improved Aquatank II, is a heavy duty food grade polyurethane coated nylon, that is more puncture resistant, more durable, and more compact when stored. It will not wrinkle, crease or crack and is very flexible material.
