Large Capacity Collapsible Pillow Tanks
200,000 Liter Pillow Tank
Question: I am looking for a 200,000 liter pillow tank for use to store large quantities of drinking water at my location. What is the potential area I would need to contain this tank? Are there any special items I need to place on the ground in order for it to be stored there?
Answer: Flexible tanks are a great option for large or bulk capacity water storage. For the capacity you have requested, specific sizing will depend greatly on the type of fabric you choose. However, the maximum dimensions typically required in all directions when the tank is filled are as follows:
- 43 feet in length (43' L)
- 45 feet in width (45' W)
- 4 feet in height (4' H)

Pillow Tank Storage Requirements
The storage requirements for a collapsible tank may vary based on your location or your materials. As a general guideline, you should always make sure the area you need to place your tank is level and clear of sharp objects. Typical objects you will want to make sure the area is clear of include the following:
- Sharp Twigs or Branches
- Sharp Debris
You will also want to make sure that your area is covered from potentially harmful products in all directions. This will include objects that could potentially get in the way of your tank as it fills with water. When a flexible tank is shipped to your location, the tank will lie completely flat until it has been filled. This means you should clear the area surrounding your tank.
For further abrasion protection, you can also consider using Ground Cloths, liners or even berms. If you are looking for ground protection only, the ground cloth may be the best option to consider. These light weight liner materials are designed for ground support and can add extra protection along the bottom of your storage tank.
