Drinking water storage in detail

1. The flexible tank, a simple and safe solution for storing drinking water

Regardless of the solution used, installing a drinking water tank comes with quite heavy environmental, earthmoving and logistical constraints to implement. In addition, conservation standards are strict because drinking water is a resource at the heart of ecological and health issues.

Choosing a self-supporting closed flexible tank or an open storage tank (self-standing or reinforced) means choosing a complete solution for the collection, treatment and distribution of drinking water under the best conditions.

Expert opinion

Is the flexible tank liable to alter the stored water?

Elisabeth Neyrand, Export Sales & Humanitarian Officer

One of the questions most asked of our teams is the deterioration of liquids stored over the long term or even at certain temperatures.

Our fabrics meet the REACH standard controlling the use of hazardous chemicals in products. Laboratory tests also confirm insignificant interactions between the tissues and the water stored in our tanks. Our technical fabrics also withstand extreme outdoor temperatures ranging from -30°C to +70°C, without altering the stored liquid. The liquid will remain around room temperature.
