Contact Times

The contact times for these collapsible water tanks vary depending on which fabric you are using. Rated contact times for the fabrics shown here include:

  • Up to 1 year: Medium Grade Fabric
  • 3 to 5 years: Commercial Grade Fabric
  • Up to 7 years: Industrial Grade Fabric

It should be noted that the contact time for a tank is rated as the moment where the fabric on the tank MAY start to change. This has no bearing on the lifespan of your tank.


Where the Tank can be Stored

The outer materials used for these pillow tanks are typically made from a polyester or nylon material. This type of fabrication is well equipped to handle outdoor or indoor temperatures and elements.

For more demanding climates (such as extreme temperatures, changing temperatures, or constant sunlight exposure) the industrial material options can be a reliable choice. These pillow tanks are made from a thicker fabric material and offer more durability and strength for these climates.

If you will be using these tanks in an outdoor location, please make sure that the ground is level and properly cleared of glass or other sharper objects. For added support you can also check out the Berms and Liners.


Large Capacity Tanks

Have an application that requires more storage? There are also several industrial material tanks that can be used to store larger quantities of potable water. See the list below for filled sizes of these tanks.

The larger capacity collapsible water tanks are typically used for industrial or demanding applications. They have been built from high quality industrial grade material to help hold up in demanding conditions.

When using a larger capacity pillow tank, berms and liners are recommended for increased support. Large capacity tanks can be much heavier in weight, so its never a bad idea to consider added a little extra lining between the ground and your tank.
