5000 Gallon Frame Tank Information
FAQ: How long do frame tanks last? Can you customize them?
Question: What is the price of a 5,000 gallon frame tank? Also, what is the longevity of frame tanks in sunlight for an aquaponics application? Can you install a drain in frame tanks?
Answer: A frame tank features a flexible design that can be adapted with several different fittings including drains and connection ports. The types of fittings available include camlock, storz, or bulkhead fittings made from polypropylene. They can also be fitted with aluminum or brass fittings when required. Frame tanks are commonly used for a wide variety of applications such as aquaponics, emergency water storage for fire fighting or emergency relief efforts, fuel storage and secondary containment.
For aquaponics a food grade option may work best. FDA and NSF 61 approved interior liners allow the frame tank to safely store consumable goods. In addition to the safety inner liner, the outer exterior of these frame tanks are made from a highly durable fabric that is designed specifically for outdoor storage and dependable use. While the fabrics used for the tank can vary based on your application, but each fabric is UV resistant for extended use in outdoor conditions.
Frame tanks typically come with two different frame options:
Aluminum Frame: (Standard)
- Uses 1" x 1" x 1/8" 6061 Square Tube Aluminum
- Laser cut hinges
- 20-25% weight savings over steel
- Aluminum MIG-welded construction
- Uses 7/8" 4 gauge Round Tube Steel
- Equipped with heavy-duty laser cut hinge

Longevity on a 5000 gallon frame tank will depend on your application, outdoor conditions, and wear and tear that is placed on the tank. Different applications may allow the frame tank to last longer than others.
