Classic Husky® Portable Folding Frame Water Tanks
The Best Portable Water Tank on the Market
Husky® Port-a-Tank Liners are designed so there are no bulky corners or sagging liner. Our manufacturing process (patent pending) allows us to use one continuous piece of material for the side panel, which is then welded to our Husky®-Duty Floor Material. We also install solid brass grommets in a tight pattern, alleviating any liner drooping at the frame. These features give our collapsing portable folding frame tanks the best fitting, most durable liner available, making it one of the best porta ponds on the market. Our vinyl liners come in 22 oz., 22 oz. sides with a 30 oz. floor, or 30 oz. Vinyl liners are available in a variety of colors and NSF 61 approved 30 oz. potable material or chemical and fuel resistant materials that are great for oil spill clean-up or petroleum storage. Liners are also available in Husky®-Tough EXLON® which has superior UV resistance, heat resistance, abrasion, puncture resistance, and excellent cold cracking qualities, making it the best folding tank liner material on the market.
Husky® Folding Water Tanks include our exclusive "Easy Lift Handles" (US Patent No. 8,746,478 and US Patent 10,518,967 ) and Quick-Release Drain Tube, making Husky® the easiest to handle folding water tank on the market. We also use aircraft-quality frame material.
A Variety of Uses
Husky® Folding Frame Tanks are used in the Firefighting Industry for rural water supply and water shuttle operations and are used in the Spill Berm Secondary Containment market as well.
