250,000 gallon Drinking Water Storage Tanks
FAQ: What are the specifications and options for large drinking water tanks?
Question: Can you provide me a technical specification on a large (250,000 gallon) drinking water storage tank? I'm looking for pressure ratings, inlet and outlet sizes, bedding material, etc.
Answer: Sure! We'd be happy to provide you with that information. In order to determine the exact specifications you will require for your tank, there are a couple of additional facts we would need to know:
- Where will you be storing this tank?
- How much space you have available?
- What type of water storage are you looking to achieve?
- How long are you planning to store the water?
Knowing these facts can help use to determine the best type of drinking water tank fabric you will need for your location. Fabrics for these tanks typically come in three different thicknesses that correspond to a rated contact time of either 1 year, 3-5 years, or 7 years. This contact time is designed to act as the rated amount of time the fabric on your tank will last before it begins to change. It is not a specific lifespan for your tank.
