Elliptical Poly Tank Applications
With a low profile and low center of gravity, elliptical leg water tanks are used to store potable or non-potable water, for backup water supplies for farming, and for fire suppression. The tank is UV stabilized and can be stored outside. To further improve water quality in storage, consider using a black tank, as it helps prevent algae growth. Elliptical leg water tanks are also easy to move with a forklift of frontloader, as the legs are built from the same impact resistant poly and provide clearance for the forklift tines beneath the tank's body. They can be mounted on tank stands to increase water pressure or mounted on trailers and used as spray tanks.
