AQUATANK II WATER STORAGE CONTAINER
Directions to Fill
Place your Aquatank II on a clean level surface which is well supported. If the area under Aquatank II is not
smooth, it is suggested to place a plastic tarpaulin underneath the Aquatank II. To aid in the draining of the
water you might want to elevate your Aquatank II. A deck or a sheet of plywood elevated slightly will make it
easier to drain
Aquatank II has two fittings - one for filling (female connection) and the other one for draining (male
connection). To fill, make sure the cap on the male connection is secure. Screw a garden hose* into the female
connection. Turn on the water supply. It would not be prudent not to leave the Aquatank II unattended while
filling. The 60 gallon Aquatank II will take approximately 20 minutes to fill, depending on your local water
pressure. Fill your Aquatank II until it is the shape of a pillow (about 15 inches high) BE CAREFUL NOT TO
OVER FILL. Over filling may cause damage to the Aquatank II.
* If you prefer a food grade hose, - they are available at most hardware or big box stores
Store your Aquatank II in a safe, cool, dry and clean place. Before you use (or if you are re-using) Aquatank II,
purify it by placing 3 to 5 gallons of water with 8 drops of bleach per gallon of water added to it (non-scented
bleach and not pool chlorine) and then fully drain. Now you can fill your Aquatank II. The purity of the water in
Aquatank II is only as good as what you put in it. Contaminated water or suspect water is not potable and
should be discarded and not used for cooking or drinking. To give longer storage life to any stored water, keep
it out of sunlight and keep it cool as possible. The manufacturer cannot be responsible for the quality of the
water stored in the unit - please use common sense. We encourage you to do your own research on long term
! Do not stand, lie, or sit on Aquatank II and keep all sharp objects away.
! Keep out of direct sunlight.
! Keep all animals away from Aquatank II.
! Although the material used to make Aquatank II has a strong chemical resistance, do not spill any oils, solvents
and chemicals on it. If a spill should occur, wipe off immediately.
! Be wary of any spill or leak potential. Place Aquatank II in an area where leaks or spills will not affect anything
else. If water spills onto the unit while filling, the water has a tendency to migrate to the edge of the
welded seams, which may appear that the unit is leaking, when in fact it is not.
! It is advised that you not store Aquatank II (or any large water container) in your attic. Remember that water
weighs 8.33 pounds per gallon, therefore a mere 60 gallons weighs just under 500 pounds.
! If you are planning to transport an Aquatank (truck bed, etc.) you should place the unit in a simple, but sturdy
frame to keep it from rolling causing a change in weight distribution in your vehicle
