Elegantly Designed Water Tanks
Price: 22,000 Kyats ($23)
Total Number Sold: 11,083
For farm and household use, it's important for rural families to have a constant large supply of water. For use alone, or in conjuntion with one of our products, we've been designing affordable, portable storage tanks since 2007.
The latest of our designs is the Pyit Taing Taung, or "Sturdy Boy", a 250 gallon capacity tank designed for complete portability, durability and affordability. Made of PVC impregregnated canvas with a plastic rim, the Pyit Taing Taung is stored flat and grows into a freestanding tank as it is filled with water. When connected to a pump and a hose, or a drip set, it can help make irrigation a one-man, or one-woman, job.
