250 Gallon SunShield Emergency Water Storage Tanks - The SunShield line of Emergency Water Storage Tanks by Poly-Mart are the most advanced Emergency Drinking Water Tanks on the market today! Featuring a molded-in layer of Food-Grade, FDA/NSF Approved, BPA-Free, Black polyethylene for completely blocking the sunlight. If sunlight cannot enter your tank and it's pitch dark inside, algae cannot grow inside your tank. Have you ever wondered why the majority of plastic tanks you see on the market are black or Dark Green? It's because those are naturally dark colors. With SunShield Technology, select any color tank you'd like and still block all the sunlight! Testing from Texas A&M University also proves our lighter colored SunShield Tanks keep stored water cooler than a standard dark green tank. Our Arctic White color preforms best as it will keep your outdoor stored drinking water up to 14 degrees cooler! Select from 11 tank colors and get a tank color that matches your home or surroundings. Featuring an industry leading 10-Year Manufacturer’s Warranty, these tanks are built to last and are manufactured with BPA-Free, FDA/NSF Approved Polyethylene made specifically for Drinking Water Applications. If you command top of the line quality in the products you buy, seriously...here's your tank!

You don't have to take our word for it. Here's the independent testing conducted from Texas A&M University: SunShield Research Paper

The Poly-Mart 250 Gallon SunShield® Emergency Water Storage Tank is 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 preparation of Hurricanes & Earthquakes, Power Outages or a Contaminated City Water Supply. Storing potable drinking water is usually at the top of the list in practicing practical preparedness. The Poly-Mart 250 Gallon SunShield Emergency Water Storage Tanks enable you to store water where ever you have the room whether that be inside or outside! Have the peace of mind knowing there is not another plastic tank on the market that will give you better performance!  

Poly-Mart 250 Gallon SunShield® Emergency Water Storage Tank are made from FDA/NSF Approved, Food-Grade, BPA-Free Polyethylene and has built-in UV Inhibitors to avoid color fading and breakdown from harsh sunlight. The Poly-Mart 250 Gallon SunShield® Emergency Water Storage Tank is made in Austin, Texas and is available in 11 colors! Boasting the largest color selection in the plastic tank business, Poly-Mart SunShield® Emergency Water Tanks are also available in a wide range of sizes including 100, 125, 150, 200, 250 and 500 gallons. These tanks are all preinstalled with two 3/4" Polypropylene Bulkhead Fittings that are located in positions that are advantageous to this application. The tank also ships with (1) 3/4" Lead-Free Brass Spigot and (1) 3/4" Lead-Free Brass Ball Valve Assembly. The Brass Ball Valve Assembly is used in the fitting that is located at the base of the tank and can be used for filling or draining. The other tank fitting is located 14" off the ground and off-centered from the fill/drain fitting. That way there is never any interference with the bottom outlet fitting when filling up to a 5-gallon bucket. This is a turn-key tank solution. There is no need to go out to your local hardware store and source brass hardware in order to make your tank work how you need it to. It's all included and ships on the inside of the tank!

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. 

Lockable Stainless Steel Ball Valve Upgrade Option: If you select this option below, your tank 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 locks not included). Whether your trying to deter curious children from emptying your water supply or keep someone else from using it, this is a great option!
