Did you know there’s a way to store drinking water? Learn more about pillow tanks and why they’re important! Click To Tweet

Aqua-BarrierⓇ Water Storage, formerly Insta-Tank™, is a pillow tank made from heavy-duty vinyl to store freshwater. With a number of different sizes, this way to store water transforms commercial use and emergency response.

What’s a “pillow tank”?

In a few words, a pillow tank is a collapsible storage container made of heavy-duty vinyl to hold liquid. When the container is filled to maximum capacity, the tank takes the form of a large pillow, hence the name. It’s also known as a bladder tank, collapsible water tank, or our renown Aqua-BarrierⓇ Water Storage.

Why would you store water?

There are a number of reasons why residential or commercial property owners might want to store water in a collapsible water tank.

  • Pool Repair: Store the chlorinated and clean pool water in a storage tank to conserve water and prevent unnecessary pool drainage.
  • Events/Festivals: Use a portable water pillow tank to store septic water temporarily for a large event or festival. 
  • Hurricane/Tropical Storms: Keep floodwaters at bay by setting up a tank to collect the dirty and contaminated water during natural disasters.
  • Irrigation: Protect your crops with the use of a portable tank to collect rainwater for droughts.
  • Relief Efforts: During emergency situations, store drinking water safely in a durable tank to minimize bacteria and provide aid.

Pro Tip: Depending on your environment, installation may look different for your pillow tank. Knowing the difference between dry ground and moving water is important for your pillow tank’s success.

Other Benefits of Aqua-BarrierⓇ Water Storage

Compared to other water storage solutions, Aqua-BarrierⓇ Water Storage is available in many different sizes so that you can easily transport your pillow tank. In addition, the portable and compact design allows any user the ability to store and reuse the tank as many times as necessary. This renewability feature conserves resources and saves money. Instead of having to dispose of contaminated liquids, you can easily fold the tank up for the next use.

Conclusion

From pool repair to relief efforts, there are a number of ways to use a pillow tank. The accessibility and reusability of collapsible water tanks make them a water storage solution that allows any user the ability to get their job done faster and more efficiently.

Water Storage Applications for Bladder Cofferdams

Inflatable cofferdams serve more purposes than just blocking water. What if you need to store some water for later or transport hundreds of gallons of water to another location? For water storage, the Aqua-Barrier is an excellent way to store and transport water.

Depending on your needs, a bladder tank or cofferdam can store drinking water or non-potable water or even collect rainwater. The durable vinyl prevents tearing and keeps the water inside safe and clean. Regardless of why you need special water storage, the Insta-Tank water storage bladder is sure to help you.

Compact, Portable, and Reusable

Similar to the Aqua-Barrier cofferdam, Aqua-Barrier Water Storage products are made of high-grade vinyl that is nearly impossible to tear. No water will leak out. These products are also conveniently sized for portability even when completely full. Just like the original cofferdam, these “pillow tanks” are fully reusable. Best of all, you can choose between two different versions of the Aqua-Barrier Water Storage tank depending on whether or not the water must meet safety standards for drinking.

Gradual Watering

You may need a steady stream of water released into the ground at a constant rate. If the weather stays dry and you can’t afford to wait for it to rain, the Aqua-Barrier Water Storage can help you out. Connect a few special pipes and you can structure the bladder to provide a constant stream of water into the ground at your specified rate. Adjust the flow as needed. The ground will stay as moist as you need it to. 

Long-Term Water Storage

A fully inflated Aqua-Barrier cofferdam can hold 9,000 gallons of water. While it won’t necessarily be safe for drinking, this water can be used for plants, refilling drying ponds, and more. This massive collapsible water tank will keep the water ready as long as you need it!

Pro Tip: Aqua-Barrier water storage products come in different sizes and types. Browse our full selection to find the right one for your unique applications.

Sustainable Water Storage

With potable water bladder tanks, you can be confident that your drinking water is safe from evaporating and being contaminated. Even with standard bladder storage tanks, there’s no risk of the tank leaking some of your water. For a reusable, sustainable method of long-term water storage, you can’t go wrong with Aqua-Barrier Water Storage.

3 Ways to Master Pool Water Conservation

3 Ways to Master Pool Water Conservation

water park repairWith El Nino patterns leaving many areas in drought conditions, homeowners are suffering from “pool guilt”. Water is scarce and putting thousands of gallons into a hole in the backyard does not sit well with some. However, pools do not waste as much water as you think and do not require refilling often. Many contractors and pool repair companies are turning to pool water conservation to reduce the impact on water supply even more.

Nonetheless, many contractors and pool repair companies are turning to pool water conservation to reduce the impact on water supply even more.

3 Options for Pool Water Conservation

Here are three ways you can conserve water, and still do a perfect job for your client.

Reduce Water Evaporation & Leakage

While the amount of water that escapes from your pool can sometimes be less than what’s wasted from a leaky toilet, evaporation and leaks do occur. Help your clients with water conservation tips that reduce water evaporation and leakage.

  • Recommend a good pool cover to reduce evaporation by about 90-95%
  • Check the pool pump to be sure it’s the correct size and speed for your client’s pool.
  • Have your client monitor their water bill for any changes that might indicate a leak and repair leaks right away.

Inflatable tanks

At times, conserving water during a pool repair job can seem impossible. You may be forced to drain all of the water (a precious commodity!) from the swimming pool to properly repair the pool. Storing the water during a repair like this allows you to manage pool water conservation while still performing quality work. Add an Insta-Tank to your pool repair equipment. These reusable inflatable tanks are designed to be swiftly deployed and suitable for storing fresh potable water – making them perfect for pool repair! Compact and light, they are easy to store, deploy, and move around if necessary. When you finish the repair, simply drain the water back into the pool, deflating and storing the Insta-tank for future use.

Partially Draining the Pool

Sometimes you can make a repair without completely draining the pool. Use a water-filled temporary cofferdam to dewater only the section of the pool needing the repair.

When strategically placed, the Aqua-Barrier® temporary cofferdam allows you to completely drain one side of the pool while holding water in the other side. Combine the Aqua-Barrier® with Insta-Tank to store the water removed until the job is done.

Clients can rest easy knowing that pool water conservation is just as important to you and your company as it is to them. Not only will they appreciate the quality of your work, but your clients will be able to enjoy their pool that much more knowing they had a part in protecting our water resources.
