Collapsible Backpack Tank

Rigid Back Tank Pumps

When you travel into areas of our land where wildfires are a serious risk, the sight of the rigid back tank is a common occurrence. Often you will encounter a pickup truck with 1 or 2 of them mounted and ready for quick action. Upon entering camp or park areas, you may see small crude fire stations shelters where 1 or more may be housed along with other basic wildfire fighting equipment such as axes, shovels, brooms & rakes.

The back tank with its 5 gallons of water can be quickly slung on a person’s back and hurried to a hot spot. Discovering a fire in its early stages is crucial. The backpack tank provides a means to do something about the situation. For the cottage owner, one of these backpack tanks should be prominently placed and ready for deployment -- to the campfire, the burning barrel, or other area of concern.

Rigid Back Tank

WATERAX Back Tank           $212 Cdn

The all-new WATERAX OT-4NX is a modernized poly backpack pump that was conceived with the comfort and safety of the user in mind. The tank is made of lightweight yet rugged UV-resistant polyethylene making it easier to carry without compromising on durability. Ergonomics can be felt through the sleek contours of the tank, the integrated lumbar support, and the comfortable shoulder straps. The robust carrying handle makes for easy lifting and also serves as a port where the hand pump can be neatly docked. The large diameter filler neck allows convenient filling, cleaning access, and features a filler strainer to capture and prevent unwanted particles from entering the hand pump's water supply.
