Underground Fiberglass Tanks
Underground fiberglass tanks are 100% watertight when installed to the manufacturers installation instructions. This minimizes your pumping costs- inflow and infiltration are eliminated, allowing the re-circulation tank to pump effluent from inlet assembly and filter return. Fiberglass tanks by nature are anti-corrosive, eliminating the need for internal and external liners concrete, and steel tanks require.
Underground Fiberglass Tank Features
Underground fiberglass tanks' water tight connections are ensured by fiber-glassing the PVC inlet and outlet fittings.
Underground fiberglass tanks offer flexible design options including configuration for riser openings with internal flanges (used to hang pump vaults for turbine pump applications), pump platforms (used for centrifugal pump applications), pump quick disconnects, slide rails, anti vortex plates, baffle walls, smoothing inlets & bottom sumps.
Underground fiberglass tanks are light & easy to install while remaining strong to withstand an H-20 traffic load.
Standard underground fiberglass tanks can be buried up to seven feet deep. If your application calls for a deeper bury we can provide a MTO (made to order) tank with thicker walls. Wall thickness of tank will be determined by burial depth.
