500 Gallon Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Container - Poly-Mart manufactures a 500 Gallon Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Container that is equipped with all the necessary fittings needed to store an emergency drinking water supply at home. These Containers carry all the same benefits as the regular version, just simply molded with more material. The Heavy Weight version is popular for two main reasons. In earthquake prone areas of the country, these Containers can be preferred if storing your water indoors or in a garage as items stored over head could fall in an Earthquake and cause damage to the Container. The second reason is because a lot of people think the price difference isn't substantial. So if there is a higher quality version of something, sometimes it's preferred. Regardless of the version, these Containers will be around in upwards to 3 decades in left in the full sun, and there is no telling how long they will last if kept out of the sun!

Our 500 Gallon Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Containers are made from FDA-Approved, NSF-61 Approved, Food-Grade, BPA-Free Polyethylene and has built-in UV Inhibitors to avoid color fading and breakdown from harsh sunlight. The 500 Gallon Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Container is made in Austin, Texas by Poly-Mart and is available in a wide variety of colors. The Poly-Mart Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Containers are also available in these gallon sizes: 100125150200250, and 1150 gallons. These Emergency Drinking Water Containers are all outfitted with two 3/4" Polypropylene Bulkhead Fittings that are factory-installed, and ship with (1) 3/4" Lead-Free Brass Spigot and (1) 3/4" Lead-Free Brass Ball Valve Assembly. The Lead-Free Brass Ball Valve Assembly is used at the base of the tank 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: 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. 

500 Gallon Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Container | Stainless Steel Ball Valve | Water Container StoreLockable Stainless Steel Ball Valve Upgrade Option: If you select this option above, your Container will come with (2) 3/4" Stainless Steel Lockable Ball Valve Assemblies in replacement of the pictured Brass Hardware. Stainless Steel is less corrosive, higher quality, doesn't rust and is great for drinking water. However most importantly, this option will allow you to lock your valves with a standard pad lock (pad lock is not included). Whether you're trying to deter curious children from emptying your water supply or keep someone else from using it, this is a great option!
