Collapsible Tank Placement

ground clothWhen using a 20,000 Gallon Collapsible Water Tank in any location, there are a couple of general precautions you could take to help extend the life of your tank and prevent damage to your storage unit.

In general, the collapsible tank works best when used on a flat or level surface. This helps to prevent the tank from moving or rolling. In addition, the use of a ground cloth or other surface protector can help to protect your tank from damage during storage.

The standard ground cloth that we offer for tank protection is a coated PVC or Vinyl material. Different materials can work, as long as your goal is for protection from ground elements.

If you are looking for a ground protector that can serve as more of a secondary containment item, something that includes more of a berm wall might be a better option. Additionally, you will also want to make sure that material you use on the ground is equipped to handle or contain the liquid you will be storing inside the tank.
