    A large storage container for water made from plastic would work as long as it is BPA-Free such as Plastic#5: Polypropylene (PP).  The common uses are bottle caps, food containers, drinking straws and used for injection molding. It’s resistance to high heat generally makes it microwave and dishwasher safe, as well as a good option for food and beverage storage. This site http://www.reuseit.com/learn-more/materials/plastics-an-overview goes into detail about the many plastics.

    There is a BPA-Free Water Reusable Bottle, which is made from Tritan, the brand name for this copolyester developed by Eastman Chemical Company. “It is a tough, BPA-free material that has similar properties to common plastics such as polycarbonate. Tritan has chemical resistance and maintains its integrity in environments where other materials may degrade. Products made from Tritan can have the look of glass – without the weight and with more durability”.

    The largest found made from Tritan is the five-gallon size at:  http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-100694-new-wave-enviro-products-round-tritan-water-bottle-bpa-free-5-gallon?utm_source=googleaffiliatenetwork&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=k373160.

    There is also the Ultimate 250-Gallon Emergency Water Tank which is made of BPA-Free Food-grade Plastic (High-Density Polyethylene).
