Vertical Water Tank Details
The vertical poly tank is the "go to" choice for home, farm, or industrial bulk water storage. Designed for use above ground, these vertical plastic water tanks are made from virgin polyethylene resin and molded to a specific gravity of 1.5. FDA approved resins provide a drinking water safe tank, with an algae resistant black tank option also available for potable water use. The heavy-duty blue tank is recommended for use with fertilizers or other heavy water-based non-petroleum chemical solutions. The vertical water storage tank's standard features include a bulkhead fitting with siphon hose, and a vented tank lid. Tie-down grooves are molded into the edge of the tank. The vertical poly tank is a quality-made tank from a manufacturer with decades of proven results.
These vertical water storage containers are not recommended for underground use, due to potential crushing ground pressure that can cause the tank to collapse. Burying the tank voids the manufacturer's warranty.

They can also be used in storing fertilizers or other water-based chemical solutions. Vertical water storage tanks are designed for above ground use and come in a variety of sizes and capacities.
Vertical Water Tank Frequently Asked Questions
Vertical Water Tank Questions and Answers
We do not recommend using the vertical water storage containers underground. Ground pressure can collapse the plastic tank and voids your warranty. If using in an underground application, it is best to place an underground reinforced wall between the vertical plastic water tank and the ground. This can prevent outside pressure on the tank.
Vertical water tanks make better use of space, requiring less ground area. This translates into cost savings if you are preparing a foundation for the tank. They also provide better and more even water pressure naturally, offering increased flow when dispensing water from the tank and reducing pumping costs. Horizontal tanks, however, are easier to transport.
