This Poly-Mart 500 Gallon Sunshield Heavy Weight Emergency Water Storage Tank is equipped with all the necessary fittings needed for long term water storage applications. Poly-Mart is proud to bring the most advanced line of plastic tanks to the market! This premier line of patented tanks feature a molded-in SunShield Layer of food grade black polyethylene to eliminate UV light penetration from the sun. This inner layer is made from the same virgin food grade material as the outer layer of the tank, but with the added benefit of being compounded for complete sunlight protection. These two layers are seamless and are molded together at the same time, making the inner and outer layer one complete seamless wall. Testing from Texas A&M University proves these tanks measure Zero UV light intensity when placed in the full sun, even in the lightest colored tanks. Ever wondered why plastic storage tanks are mainly sold in Black & Dark Green colors? Those colors are naturally dark so they typically let in less light than other colors. With SunShield, color is no longer an obstacle! Testing proves our new Arctic White color w/ SunShield will keep your stored water up to 14 degrees cooler in comparison to your standard colored dark green plastic tank on the market as the Arctic White color reflects light! In hot climates, this is important for controlling evaporation and allows the water pumped indoors in Summer months to be a little cooler! Featuring an industry leading 10-Year Manufacturer's Warranty, these tanks are built to last and are available in our Water Storage, Rainwater Harvesting, First Flush and Emergency Water Storage versions! Poly-Mart offers the largest tank color selection in the industry with 13 available colors. Our Black and Dark Green colors allow zero light in the tank so the SunShield layer is not necessary in those two colors. However we are proud to continue setting the standard by offering the SunShield Tanks in our remaining 11 colors! No matter the color or tank size Poly-Mart's SunShield Tanks are superior to any other option available today and will best protect your water from the effects of the sun. Thirteen Colors. Zero Light. One Clear Choice.

Heavy weight water storage tanks are extremely durable and the tank of choice for earthquake prone areas. Poly-Mart Emergency Water Storage Tanks are made from FDA/NSF Approved, Food Grade, BPA-Free polyethylene and has built-in UV inhibitors to avoid color fading and breakdown from harsh sunlight. The Poly-Mart 500 Gallon Emergency Water Storage Tank is made in the Great State of Texas! Poly-Mart Emergency Drinking Water Storage Tanks are available in a wide variety of sizes ranging from 100 gallons to 500 Gallons. These tanks come with two 3/4" bulkhead fittings & ship with one 3/4" high quality brass spigot & one 3/4" Brass Ball Valve Assembly. The Brass Ball Valve Assembly is for the bottom fitting of the tank and is used for draining and attaching a hose. The 3/4" Brass Spigot is used for the raised fitting that is located 14" off the ground and off centered from the fill/drain fitting. This is for filling a 5 gallon bucket or pan with water. These tanks come standard in our light blue color as it resembles fresh water in an emergency situation. However, these tanks are available in all of our available colors!
