Rainwater IBC Totes

About Rainwater IBC Totes

Rainwater IBC Totes are caged intermediate bulk containers designed for successful rainwater capture, storage, and implementation. IBC Tanks offers 275 gallon and 330 gallon, rebottled poly caged IBC totes as cost effective, durable rainwater tote options. They are engineered and certified for potable water use and are ideal for rainwater harvesting, catchment, and distribution projects.

Manufacturing Methods and Materials

Rainwater harvesting IBCs feature a newly manufactured inner bottle that is blow mold fabricated from consumer grade, FDA food use approved, BPA free, virgin high density polyethylene (HDPE). The inner HDPE tank is ANSI / NSF Standard 61 certified for drinking water systems.

Stabilizing ultraviolet (UV) inhibitors are added during tote manufacture to resist the damaging effects sunlight exposure can have, making these tanks suitable for extended outdoor applications. Rainwater IBC totes have translucent sidewalls for easy sight gauging of internal rainwater volume levels.

Engineering of Rain Water IBCs

Rainwater storage IBCs feature a protective galvanized steel exterior frame and integrated pallet base. The frame and pallet have seen prior service but have been reconditioned, inspected, and certified according to top industry standards for continued use.

The steel frame is made of tubular, zinc-plated steel and is designed to be resistant to rust, warping, physical impact damage, and environmental stressors. The steel frame has two top support bars that can be removed, providing access to the inner HDPE bottle.

The single unit steel frame and HDPE composite pallet base increases the overall durability and maneuverability of the IBC. Rainwater totes have 4 way cross-directional pallet jack and forklift access channels. The integrated skid allows multi-directional approach for organization, stacking, loading, and unloading. Empty rainwater IBCs can be stacked 3 high and are not recommended more than 2 high if holding water.

Rain Storage IBC Specifications and Dimensions

Caged rainwater totes have a 6″ screw cap made from HDPE with buttress threads and EPDM gasket. As standard, totes feature a 2″ ball valve with male camlock, quick disconnect that allows easy connection to the garden hose adapter valve commonly used with IBC totes for rainwater harvesting.

  • 275 Gallon Rainwater IBC Tote Dimensions: 48″ L x 40″ W x 46″ H
