Our 250 Gallon Rainwater Harvesting Tanks are a great size for storing your collected rainwater in almost any residential back yard! We designed this rainwater tank to sit below residential fence lines, which is required by some Home Owners Association’s. One of our most popular sizes, our 250 Gallon Rainwater Harvesting Tanks store 5 times the rainwater as a standard 50 gallon rain barrel while barely having a larger foot print. This size can feasibly be placed at each downspout in your back yard for some serious back yard rainwater collection!
Like all of our Vertical Storage Tanks, Poly-Mart 250 Gallon Rainwater Harvesting Tanks are designed with 4 Dome Flats on the top of the tank and 4 Layout Flats at the base of the tank. These 8 flats surfaces set our tank design apart from others and allow you to daisy chain tanks together or provide flat surfaces for installation of additional outlet/inlet fittings, Tank Over Flow Fittings, Float Switches, Tank Gauges and other Rainwater Harvesting Accessories. Your installer or contractor will love having flexibility when needing to install additional fittings where you need them most in your application. Poly-Mart 250 Gallon Rainwater Storage Tanks come with a 16″ Stainless Steel Mesh Tank Screen installed on the top of the tank. The Tank Screen (or sometimes referred to as a Strainer Basket) is the rainwater entry point of the tank. It’s primary job is to keep mosquitoes out of the rainwater tank and allows a large entry point of pre-filtered rainwater to enter the tank. Large debris like sticks and leaves should be filtered out prior to reaching the Strainer Basket by using a Rain Head and/or a First Flush Diverter. There is also a stainless steel mesh screened overflow assembly, outlet bulkhead fitting and a 3/4″ bulkhead fitting for a water hose spigot. The stainless steel mesh screened overflow assembly is designed for directing overflown water during large rain storms while doubling to keeping pests & mosquitoes out of the tank. Our 3/4″ bulkhead fitting is placed at a height that enables you to install a spigot and fit a watering can underneath for filling. Collected rainwater is technically non-potable. Do not drink collected rainwater without proper filtration.
