Fol-Da-Tank Collapsible Tanks for Water Shuttle and Storage (Pillow Style) Please Note: The tank dimensions show a /- of 6" when filled. Once the tank is filled with water the length and width will shrink.
It was more than fifty years ago that the first Fol-Da-Tank was introduced to firefighters, who recognized its value and quality immediately. In fact, the quality was so good many of these original models are still on the job, performing like new.
Fol-Da-Tank has proved to be the practical answer as an extra water supply for rural areas, where water pressure is low or as a back-up facility for municipal fire departments.
