Feb. 26, 2010 -- Go-To Tanks, a distributor of plastic storage tanks, is offering a great discount on water storage tanks to charitable organizations. They are donating five percent of proceeds from every order to Haiti Relief Efforts.

Water tank supplier Go-To Tanks is pleased to announce that they are offering a special discount on bladder tanks for emergency water storage to any non-profit organizations working to help people in the wake of the Haiti earthquake. In addition, they are now donating five percent of the proceeds from every order to relief efforts in Haiti.

"We wanted to do our part in the relief efforts. Potable water storage is desperately needed in Haiti, and that's one of our specialties," said Todd Broom, owner of Go-To Tanks.

Many different types of water storage tanks are available, but bladder tanks are recommended for emergency use due to their ease of transport and low shipping cost. These durable, UV resistant tanks are safe for potable water, collapsible and can be folded up to fit inside boxes for shipping. Tanks up to 3000 gallons can be shipped via UPS, making it far less expensive and faster to send them almost anywhere in the world.

Bladder tanks furnished by Go-To Tanks have been used all over the world, and are often ordered by American troops in Afghanistan for water storage. Discounts on both the tanks and shipping costs are being offered to help charitable organizations.
