Best tank available.
I just bought one of these, and by far they are the best tank available. I spoke to the manufacturer, and it is recommended to store these on a flat concrete surface. Do not store this container filled on top of a pallet, because over time the open spaces in the pallet + the pressure on the tank could cause the tank to deform. If you don't want it to have contact with the floor, they told me to just cut 2x4's to length, and just place them tight next to each other to cover the area the tank will sit on.

Well worth the money
This water tank is what is known as "Plug and Play". I received it, installed the included faucets and gaskets (2) and filled it, drained it, and refilled it. Has an inspection hatch with a vacuum valve. Plug for fill hose inlet. It is very well made. The pallet it came on is what I used as a stand for it. I highly recommend this tank.

160 Gallon Water Reserve
This looks great. My space is very limited and I've trying to find a way to store water efficiently. This I give a two thumbs up.

- Additional Info
Q: Can I put this tank in-line with my house water?
A: Because your house water is pressurized and the tank is not, you cannot run water back into your house without a pump. You can, however, put your tank "end-line" using standard 3/4" male hose-thread and connecting it to the utility connection on the upper front of the tank.
Q: Will my tank freeze over?
A: It is not common for the tanks to freeze all the way through. If frozen, find water through the center cap.
Q: Should I clean my tanks before filling?
A: Tanks are sterilized prior to delivery through an extremely high-temperature molding process. Rinsing your tanks may be helpful but washing them prior to filling is not necessary. Vacuum drills are used in the manufacturing process to minimize plastic shavings inside your tanks. To remove any shavings that may have fallen in during assembly you may use a vacuum or simply fill as normal then scoop the shavings off the top. Plastic shavings are harmless and will float on top of your water. Chlorine, chlorine tablets, and other substances approved for treating water may be used upon filling your tank to kill bacteria that may have appeared during delivery.
