Fol-Da-Tank Self-Supporting Tank (Forestry Service Model)
The self-supporting frameless portable water tanks have been designed to meet the most stringent requirements of rural/urban fire fighting. Problems with inadequate or unusable supplies of water are eliminated by the use of open top self-supporting portable water tanks.
In remote areas the self-supporting tanks are designed for standby water containment and water shuttling situations and they provide a continuous portable water supply. In remote areas, the SST may be filled by pumping water from a natural water source, such as a stream or creek, with a small gas-operated pump. As the self-supporting tank begins to fill with water, its unique design allows it to become self-supporting automatically.
The SST does not require any additional supporting framework, assembly or frame installation. When no longer in use, the SST may be quickly drained through a fitting on the side. The SST is totally collapsible and easily stored in its own compact storage bag. It can be stored in the side or back of a truck, or in the cargo compartment of a helicopter.
