Potable Tanks for Emergency Drinking Water

What is potable water? The term simply means water that is safe for drinking.

Imagine a world where drinkable water is hard to come by. We can survive days without food, but water is another story. That’s why we focus on emergency tanks for potable drinking water at Hydroflex Systems, Inc.

We design our products to anticipate needs and manufacture them to the highest standards of quality. If you, your business or another organization needs water storage for drinkable water, turn to the experienced provider: Hydroflex.

Advantages of Hydroflex Systems' Large Capacity Potable Water Storage

Hydroflex Potable Water Storage Tanks can be used for the storage of drinking water since they are equipped with a properly certified potable water liner.  Tanks with greywater liners are also available for use in irrigation and rainwater catchment systems.  Due to their overall light weight and flexibility, very large Hydroflex tanks can easily fit through standard doorways and down stairs. Hydroflex tanks are durable and do not rust.  They are delivered completely manufactured and ready for a simple installation process.  We have been manufacturing these tanks for nearly 30 years.

Critical Storage for Drinkable Water

We often take our household water supply for granted.  However, when safe drinking water is unavailable, it is more than just an inconvenience.  It can become a health emergency.  Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and winter storms are examples of natural disasters that can interrupt the supply of safe drinking water.  Interruptions may be for only a short period of time, for a few days, or longer.  Every household should have an emergency water supply to meet its members’ needs during these situations.  You may be able to purchase bottles drinking water or distilled water at the time of need, but stores may quickly sell out.

Having an ample supply of water is a top priority in an emergency.  Everyone’s needs will differ depending on age, physical condition, activity, diet, and climate.  Hot environments can double the amount needed as the body uses water for cooling.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Red Cross recommend at least one gallon per day per person for drinking purposes and food preparation.  However and additional gallon per day per person is recommended for personal hygiene and dishwashing.

Sizes of Tanks

Hydroflex Systems Standard Potable Water Tanks come in 250, 500, and 950 gallons.  However, other sizes ranging from 100 to 5000 gallons can be special ordered at no premium cost.


The tank itself requires virtually no maintenance.  To keep water safe, commercially available products such as chlorine tablets or stabilized oxygen can be used.  Please follow directions from manufacturer of these products.  Tanks do not include a water purification system.

Your needs are unique, which is why we offer a variety of emergency tanks for drinkable water. View our selection or contact us at Hydroflex to learn more.
