How to Buy Large Water Storage Tanks


Large water storage tanks are used for commercial, agriculture and home purposes. In areas prone to drought, or for preparedness purposes, having access to extra water is important, and sometimes essential. For those dependent on municipal water sources, having a secondary supply for back up is a good idea. Those on wells may want a above-ground water storage tank for times when electricity is out. Here's how to buy large water storage tanks for home use.

  • Shop online to get an idea of large water storage tanks available, as well as the costs and types. You can find a 300 gallon poly tank for as little as $200. Look for a supplier near you to save on shipping. If you can pick it up yourself, you'll save considerably.

  • Decide which type and size water tank you need. Also consider where it will be placed, how you'll fill it, and what structure (if any) will house it. These logistics will likely influence your decision. If you have garage space and can fill with a hose, you might want to pick a tank that can easily fit in your garage space.

  • Check local ads (Penny Pincher type papers, local classifieds, Craig's List) for water barrels. Many 55-gallon water drums can often be purchased for under $15 apiece.

Tips & Warnings

  • Look for large water storage tanks at farm supply centers.
