250 Gallon Emergency Water Storage Container - Poly-Mart manufactures a line of Emergency Water Storage Containers equipped with all the necessary fittings needed to store an emergency drinking water supply at home. Many families elect to store water in their garage, basement or empty closet in anticipation of Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Power Outages or an unexpected Contaminated City Water Supply. Storing potable drinking water is usually at the top of the list in practical emergency preparedness. Poly-Mart Emergency Water Storage Containers enable you to store water outdoors as well! If storing water outdoors, select our Black or Dark Green color to block algae growth from occurring inside your Container. These two Container colors block all UV Rays from penetrating the plastic since the material has been through a process called "compounding". If you would like a color other than Dark Green or Black, but still want your Emergency Water Storage Container to block all the sunlight, check out our SunShield Emergency Water Storage Containers!
Poly-Mart Emergency Water Storage Tanks are made from FDA/NSF Approved, Food-Grade, BPA-Free Polyethylene and has built-in UV Inhibitors to avoid color fading and breakdown from harsh sunlight. Plan on getting several decades of life out of a Poly-Mart Water Storage Container even if kept in the full sun! The Poly-Mart 250 Gallon Emergency Water Storage Container is made in Austin, TX and is available in a wide variety of colors.
Poly-Mart Emergency Water Storage Containers are also available in the following gallon capacities: 100, 125, 150, 200, 500 and 1150 gallons. These Containers all come equipped with (2) factory-installed 3/4" Polypropylene Bulkhead Fittings and ship with (1) 3/4" Lead-Free Brass Spigot and (1) 3/4" Lead-Free Brass Ball Valve Assembly. The Brass Ball Valve Assembly is used at the base of the container and can be used for filling or draining. The other is located 14" off the ground and off-centered from the fill/drain fitting so that there is never any interference when filling a 5 gallon bucket or pan with water.
Included Hardware Installation: The image to the right is an example of the included Lead-Free Brass Hardware. Make sure to apply thread tape to all threads of all included brass hardware prior to installing them into your tank fittings. Be sure to wrap your thread tape against the grain of the threads and be sure to only wrap 2 revolutions. Thread Tape (Teflon Tape) is not included. Install slowly to avoid the chance of cross-threading.
Lockable Stainless Valve Upgrade Option: If you select this option, your Emergency Water Storage Container will come with (2) 3/4" Stainless Steel Lockable Ball Valve Assemblies (Pictured) in replacement of the above pictured Brass Hardware.Stainless Steel is less corrosive, higher quality, doesn't rust and is great for potable drinking water applications. However most importantly, this option will allow you to lock your valves with a standard pad lock (pad locks not included). Whether you're trying to deter curious children from emptying your water supply in your garage or basement floor or attempting to keep someone from tampering with it, this is a great option to consider!
