It was more than 57 years ago that the first Fol-Da-Tank was introduced to firefighters, who recognized its value and quality immediately.
In fact, the quality was so good many of these original models are still on the job, performing like new. Two men can unload the Fol-Da-Tank from the truck and set up in less than 30 seconds. While the pumper empties the Fol-Da-Tank a tanker can be bringing more water. Fol-Da-Tank has proved to be the practical answer as an extra water supply for rural areas where water pressure is low or as a back-up facility for municipal fire departments. Fol-Da-Tanks come standard with grab handles and hinge protectors pinch free design (U.S. patent #7,938,291, Canadian patent #2624553) to help firefighters when folding the tank. Grab handles can be placed on the bottom side walls or floor of the liner to eliminate any snagging of Low-Level strainers or hose. Fol-Da-Tanks are a great resource for oil spill containment and oil spill clean up.

Fol-Da-Tank Company introduces HPR®
HPR is a formulated fabric made specifically for Fol-Da-Tank Company with proprietary rights.

HPR® (High Performance Rubber) has been designed with UV, heat and puncture resistance, along with abrasion and cold cracking (-60° F) qualities. Fol-Da-Tank® Company guarantees this fabric with a "LIFETIME WARRANTY" on the hot air or R.F. (Dielectric Radio Frequency) heat sealed seams! (Call for further information) The HPR® formulation allows Fol-Da-Tank to offer the best fabric on the market today.

New "H2² Aluminum:
Fol-Da-Tank announces a new aluminum extrusion for folding frame tanks 31" or taller. The H2² frame combines the strength of an "I" Beam and square tube to create the strongest available frame tubing in the industry. Time tested and approved. The "H" Tube has much greater resistance to bending than a standard square tube, which is necessary for taller water tanks, and thus eliminates the need to weld on additional tubes or flatbar". The new H2² aluminum can also be offered on standard size Fol-Da-Tank frames.
Two men can unload the Fol-Da-Tank from the truck and set up in less than 30 seconds. While the pumper empties the Fol-Da-Tank a tanker can be bringing more water. With the fire out, Fol-Da-Tank can be emptied quickly with the exclusive 10" dia. quick release drain sleeve.
