Self-Supporting Tanks

Frameless, Portable Water Containers

Self-Supporting Tanks (SST’s) rise and expand as water is added to the tank, and self-level as the volume of water in the tank changes while in operation, without the support of a rigid frame. This makes SST’s easy to handle, store, and transport.

These tanks can be filled from other tanks, by hose, aerially or by pumping water from natural water sources. For standby water containment and water shuttling/relay situations these portable, folding water tanks are easy to handle, set up, fill and empty. From rural wildlands to municipal streets, FOL-DA-TANK® has been at the forefront of equipping first responders with the tools to get the job done since 1954.

Construction Features

  • Totally self-supporting with no framework or supports
  • Onion- and pumpkin-style tanks have welded seams for long life
  • Improved grab handles spaced around tank for easy handling
