Solution Overview & Benefits

The Sturdy Boy water tank (aka Pyit Taing Taung) is a 250 gallon capacity tank designed for portability, durability and affordability. Made of PVC impregnated canvas with a plastic rim, the Sturdy Boy 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-person job. The tank is intended for both farm and household use.

At half the price of 55 gallon cement or plastic alternatives, the Sturdy Boy makes irrigation and household water accessibility more attainable for low-income households.
