Onion Water Tank Construction
FAQ: Will An Onion Tank Hold 1,200 Gallons of Water for Temporary Storage?
Question: Hello. I am looking for a 1200 gallon onion tank. I currently have a tank that is around 1000 gallons, but I require one that is larger. I need to empty up to 1200 gallons of water while I clean a hot tub. I would need this water to stay in place while cleaning so I can refill the tub after I'm done. What are the sizes available?
Answer: For cleaning and temporary storage of water, the 1200 gallon Onion Tank can be a great choice. These tanks are typically designed for easy setup and filling, and can come in sizes as large as 20,000 gallons. Based on the standard sizing we have available online, the best choice for your application would be the 1200 gallon high side onion tank. This will give you the exact gallon capacity you requested in a reliable, high-sided tank.
High Side or Low Side Onion Tanks
