The Fol-Da-Tank foldable Forest Service Water Tank is a portable, self supporting tank (SST) used by firefighters to fight forest fires in remote areas. Available sizes range from 250 gallons to 20,000 gallons.

This tank includes a light weight design with vinyl material. These portable water tanks are frequently used for water storage.

As self supporting frameless water tanks fill with water, the unique design allows it to become self supporting and stand on its own without the need for heavy frames. When no longer in use, the SST tank can be drained through a fitting on the side.

The tank is easily collapsible and is stored in a compact storage bag.  Store the folded up tank in the side or back of a fire truck or in the cargo compartment of a helicopter.
