Flexible Water Tank, 39.6gal., 27 1/2" x 55 1/16"


Model # 296899 | Mfg # 16656
In stock online.

Flexible, light and form-fitting, this tank uses a PVC bladder inside a tough, abrasion-resistant nylon outer “envelope.” Maintenance is easy because the inner bladder can be removed for cleaning and inspection. The bladder is slightly oversized so pressure is exerted on its nylon shell rather than on the heat-welded seams. 1 1/2" 90° fill and 1/2" straight outlet fittings ready to install.

Comments about Plastimo Flexible Water Tank, 39.6gal., 27 1/2" x 55 1/16":

Poorly designed it, and poorly constructed. If you don't watch them like a hawk, they will overfill, and eventually burst on you. The bragged about nylon sleeve does not contain the bag so that it will not damage itself if overfilled. The connections are not well-made, and because the bag will have a tendency to move somewhat, the connections do not hold up well, leading to leaks.

Strongly suggest you save your money and buy a quality bag if you insist on having a bladder.

Service and delivery comments:

attempted to deal with Plastimo about this, no response. Eventually the American distributor made good on one of the two bags. However the replacement has been no better.
