While any size of tank can be used to store emergency rainwater, the sizes listed below are the most suitable for residential use. If you need larger, commercial-sized tanks, please visit our complete vertical storage tank page here.
Additionally, it is important to note that these tanks are intended for WATER STORAGE ONLY! They should not be used for chemicals, fertilizers or any other product with a weight of greater than 1 Specific Gravity (the weight of water). Where applicable, the tanks will carry the appropriate certifications for potable water storage. Please contact BARR Plastics for more specific information regarding certifications(must be done at time of order if required).
Made with high quality polyethylene resins that meet FDA specifications, these tanks ensure safe storage of potable water outdoors. They do not release or impart any harmful elements into the stored water and are in widespread use for the storage of potable water and rainwater. Plus, their opaque black or dark green colour options prevent sunlight penetration, reducing the growth of water-borne algae. Most of these tanks come standard with a bottom 2" drain and a top 1-1/2" fill fitting pre-installed and centered with the top lid.
