    Overview for Fol Da Tank SSTFS50025FNST Self-Supporting Frameless Collapsible Water Tank (Forest Service Model)

    The Fol-Da-Tank Self-Supporting Frameless Collapsible Water Tank (Forest Service Model) is a portable, easy-to-set-up water tank designed to be used as a temporary water reserve for rural and forestry firefighting and emergency relief operations. Made of soft but tough material, it automatically self-supports as it fills with water without assembly, frameworks, or other supporting frames required. Its versatility and portability make it the ideal solution to get quick access to water in case of limited storage space of water tanks. 

    Save precious time and manpower with fast setup

    The Self-Supporting Frameless Tank collapses to a portable size for easy storage and transport to the job site. Once on-site, it can be positioned to a convenient spot and fully setup in less than a minute using the easy-lift grab handles placed evenly around the base. 

    In remote areas, the tank can be filled by pumping water from a natural water source such as a creek or stream using a small gas-operated pump. As the tank begins to fill with water, it automatically self-supports without the need for additional assembly, frame installation, or foot pumps. The solid foam collar doesn’t need to be inflated. This drastically saves time, allowing you to perform a fast initial attack on the fire and get it under control while it is still small. 

    Specially designed for forest firefighting

    This portable tank is versatile and can be used as mixing tanks, relay tanks, and reservoirs in forest areas prone to fires especially during dry seasons. The Forest Service Model of the Self-Supporting Frameless Tank also comes with special high sidewalls that allow it to be used as a dip tank for helicopter bucketing. Its large opening at the top allows for easy bucket access. Please note that users are responsible for choosing the tank size that will work well with the size of the helicopter bucket. 

    In rural areas, which often lack fire hydrants, the tank can also be used for standby water storage, water shuttling operations, and for providing a continuous portable water supply. It comes with an installed threaded flange coupling, and any number and size of hose connections can be added for bottom drafting. 

    Tough materials for maximum durability

    The Self-Supporting Frameless Tank is made of tough PVC chemical-resistant polyester material known as Fold-a-Tank’s new High Performance Rubber or HPR. This proprietary formulated fabric replaces Hypalon and is known for its superior tear, abrasion, and puncture resistance. Tested in the extreme Middle Eastern heat and Alaska’s coldest winter, the HPR is guaranteed to withstand rough working conditions and last for years. All 2-inch seams are welded and heat-sealed for longer life.
