The notion of keeping an emergency water supply in your pickup truck may appear convenient and efficient, but you also might be wondering what’s the best possible way to do it without losing the entire space in your truck bed. Thankfully you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other. There are plenty of options for tanks that will keep your trunk spacious and have you ready to go should an emergency arise.

It is made from non-toxic translucent material and has molded-in bottle holders in the top, with a heavy-duty lid.

Flat Bottom Utility Tank

As the perfect choice when looking for a tank to put in the bed of your pickup truck, free standing flat bottom tanks can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. These tanks feature gallon indicators for easy and level viewing and are manufactured from food grade medium-density polyethylene with U.V. inhibitors, making them great for storing fresh potable and the ability to be transported safely. Available in standard and heavy duty models, this tank is meant to be fully supported on the bottom.

Low-profile Pickup Truck Water Tank

This applicator tank has a distinct shape and allows for full use of truck bed space, but with the added benefit of providing improved rear vision. The 205-gallon capacity tank is ideal for trucks such as the Nissan Frontier, GMC Canyon, Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger, Dodge Dakota and Chevrolet Colorado. It features translucent walls and gallon indicators for easy and level viewing and is designed to contain liquids of up to 1.7 specific gravity. The special roto-molded one-piece seamless design enables the tank to rest over the wheel wells of the truck bed, allowing for maximum available space.

Horizontal Flat Top Loaf Tank

This loaf tank is ideal for situations where a rectangular tank is required, making it easy to transport into the back of a pickup truck bed.

Using Water Tanks for Disaster Relief and Preparedness

With the tragic disasters of Hurricane Harvey and Irma this past week, we’ve seen first hand how much damage can be done overnight to your home. It’s a reminder for being prepared for when the worst comes and also demonstrates how the right people with the right resources can have a dramatic impact on helping their community during disaster relief. 

Chief among sought after resources in natural disasters like these is water. We take water for granted most of the year, but when moments like this happen it becomes in high demand. Maybe you saw headlines of retailers skyrocketing their prices on bottled water, making it harder to survive if you don’t already have your home in order. It’s a terrible thing, but water tanks can help prevent you or your friends and family from having to endure these types of problems and focus on keeping everyone safe.

Bladder Tanks

Bladder tanks are one of the best resources you can keep around in case of a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis like the ones being experienced in Texas and Florida. Their flexible design makes them easier to store when you don’t need them as well as easy to transport. Having one filled up and stored away in your home is a great assurance. You hope you never have to use it, but having it available is better than not. There are smaller sizes in the 20-50 gallon range for your home, but larger sizes are also available all the way up to 20,000 gallons. Larger bladder tanks are great for humanitarian services assisting the community, providing water to multitudes of people who may otherwise not have access.

Pickup Truck Tanks

Having a pickup truck during a disaster is almost like having a superpower. You have the power and space to haul all the supplies you need and then some. This is especially great because the one hamperer of water tanks is often transporting them. Thankfully there’s an array of hauling tanks great that fit great in your truck. Whether it’s an actual pickup truck water tank or a flat bottom water tank that’s the right size for your vehicle or flat bottom tanks you can stack against each other in your truck bed to distribute to others, you have plenty of options.

Natural disasters like these are harrowing, trying, and even deadly. Having the right tools at your disposal is important. Consider investing in a water tank to prepare you and yours before the next disaster hits. It’s better to be prepared than to not.
