500 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!
