500 Gallon Water Container
FAQ: What container is FDA approved for drinking water?
Question: I am looking for a 500 gallon water container that I can use to store drinking water inside my basement. I was originally looking at plastic containers but maybe one of the collapsible water bags would be better? I need something that can fit through a door and something that's FDA approved? Would a collapsible tank be acceptable for this situation?
Answer: A Collapsible Water Container can be a great option for drinking water storage that requires placement through a door opening or narrow space. These tanks are designed to be flexible in their nature and can completely fold up for transportation into and out of small spaces. Once inside your basement, tanks can fill with necessary water for use in emergencies or at a later time.
Collapsible Water Container Features:
Collapsible water containers have been used on multiple sites, locations, and buildings to successfully store drinking water. These tanks are available in a 500 gallon model that would be able to store your required amount of liquid. Sizing for this tank typically features a length of eight feet, a width of six feet, and a height of one and half feet (8' L x 6' W x 1.5' H).
Features for this unit include:
- Flexible Exteriors
- FDA and NSF 61 Approved Materials
- Available Fittings and Accessories
- Low Profile
- Foldable when Empty
- Equipped for Multiple Temperatures and Locations
Collapsible Water Tank Benefits:
When compared to other available water containers, such as plastic tanks, the collapsible tank can offer many advantages that other units would not be able to offer. These advantages can include:
- Easy Transportation
- Foldable when Empty
- Fits into Doors
- Lower Shipping Costs
- Fits in Low Profile Areas
- FDA and NSF 61 Compliant

When used in basements, collapsible tanks have also been frequently hooked up to hoses, pumps, and water systems as a type of rainwater collection device. Regardless of your application, a collapsible 500 gallon water container is a great way to store water.
