The Advantages and Applications of Fiberglass Tanks

Are you in need of a quality multi-purpose storage solution for your home or business? Well, look no further! Our variety of Fiberglass tanks is the best solution for your various storage needs.

In general, fiberglass tanks are great for outdoor rainwater harvesting, water storage, fire protection, oil field storage, liquid fertilizer, water treatment, irrigation water storage, and other uses. Fiberglass tanks last longer than most other water tanks because they’re durable, corrosion-resistant, and designed to withstand pressure, making them ideal for storing all types of water, including saltwater.

Now, let’s dive into the various applications and advantages of our line of fiberglass tanks.

Types of Fiberglass Tanks

At Plastic Mart, we carry three types of fiberglass tanks (with storage capacities between 1,000-1,000,000 gallons): Above Ground Vertical, Below Ground, and Oilfield tanks.

Above Ground Vertical tanks

With higher storage capacities compared to other tanks, these tanks are useful in different industries, such as: agriculture, food and beverage, government, industrial chemicals, energy and utilities, water and wastewater, and air pollution control. Some common uses include storage, transport, and distribution of various industrial treatment products.

Below Ground tanks

Underground tanks must meet strict manufacturing industry guidelines because they are a standard storage solution for different liquid materials and chemicals, including: water and septic waste, motor oil, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), and gasoline-ethanol blends (100% Ethanol, methanol or M85).

Oilfield tanks

This tank is an above ground fiberglass product that is equipped for regular use in oilfields because it’s corrosion and chemical resistant, fire retardant, and also meets the requirements for EPA vapor recovery.  

Overall, fiberglass tanks are a durable, cost-effective, and customizable option for your specific project needs. The other reasons why you should use fiberglass tanks are because of their quality design features, which include: superior corrosion resistance, high tensile strength and flexibility, customization for different applications, products and temperatures, along with repairability.

Advantages of Fiberglass Tanks

There are several benefits to using fiberglass tanks for your home or business projects. For example:

  • Durable and long-lasting
  • 12 times stronger than steel by weight
  • High strength to weight ratio
  • Strong structural design
  • Ease of transport and off-loading
  • Lower cost for medium to large volumes
  • UV Stable-resistant to environmental exposure
  • Can be used to store salt, fertilizer, and pesticides
  • Above and below ground tank options

All of these qualities make fiberglass tanks an economical solution for your multi-purpose storage uses. The tanks are sturdy enough for many applications, and easy to reconfigure or repair if necessary, meaning you won’t be forced to replace your tank for minor wear and tear (and they can be repainted).
