BPA Free water tank?

Anyone know if the 10g sportsmobile water tank from 2003 is BPA free? I haven't been able to figure that out yet but hoping to be using it for drinking water, etc.

Thanks!

Re: BPA Free water tank?

Sportsmobile was able to send me the specifications for the plastic used in their water tanks. It uses a medium density polyethylene. I'm happy to say that based on my research of the material the tank *is* BPA free. Medium density polyethylene is also FDA approved to be used with food and is not known to release hazardous toxins.

I've attached the full spec PDF for anyone interested in more details. I think they are using the same material now as in 2003, but I only requested information for the 2003 water tanks. However, the spec sheet is dated 2014.
