    160 Gallon Water Reserve

    I ordered one of these from Emergency Essentials last week. Seems to be a real nice product and I like that it is stackable & will fit thru normal doors. Two of these stacked would take up very little floor space but provide the water of about six 55 gallon drums. The FDA-approved high-density plastic is non-permeable and BPA-free. Enhanced with a special UV resistant formula to provide the longest shelf life for both the water and the tank. Filling and draining the tank is easy with the two included lead-free faucets. https://beprepared.com/160-gallon-water-reserve.html

    One thing I've learned when ordering from these folks is to place the item in your shopping cart, then close out the page & ignore it for a bit. When you come back, they will offer you all sorts of deals to complete the order. Can be free freight or in my case it was an additional 15% off the entire order. This is of course based upon you having an account setup so that the shopping cart is not deleted when you don't checkout immediately.

    The unit cost $369.99 but I got a $55.50 discount with that 15% off. Freight was only $12, which amazed me.

    I like the stack-ability but went with the cheaper 260 gallon tank from Sure Water $429.99 + S&H. It too fits thru standard doors. Thanks for the tip about making them think you changed your mind to get a discount. Dang smart. Sure Water

    Do you use a hand truck to movie it around?
    These would be great during hurricane season to have something ready to fill.

    Haven't got mine yet but I'd sure think filled that would be heavy... maybe too heavy for a dolly. I know a full 55 gallon drum by itself is very heavy & this is about 3 times that size. If it had to be moved, I'd drain it first, I think.

    going to weigh in at 5/4 of a ton when filled - it needs to set very flat on a well supported piece of home real estate ....

    These things look great. I'd love one, but the wife would freak out.

    Very nice Redneck. 1 Querstion; Did they actually ship a Metro-Sexual wearing Skinny Jeans and why is he leaning on your stackable water reserves?
