Potable water or drinking water is more important than ever in today’s world. Today the world has seen an increase of pollution. Also, the threat of severe weather such as hurricanes, tornados, and flooding can also be a source of unsafe drinking water.Forms of pollution include
  • Chemicals improperly disposed
  • Fertilizers including chemical fertilizer from run off after heavy rains
  • Human and animal waste
  • Landfill wastes
  • Wastes injected underground
  • Pollution from acid rain

In some part of the world it is extremely hard to find clean drinking water. Those pollutants and lack of rain has made it difficult to find water that can be treated for drinking in other parts of the world.

In many other areas well water can be hard water. That means it must be cleaned before drinking. Once sanitized, it must be stored. Underground fiberglass tanks make an ideal storage unit that guarantees the water stays clean and safe.

Potable water can be stored safely underground. Underground potable water can be stored in fiberglass tanks made by Fiberglass Tank Solutions.

National Storage Tanks is a proud dealer of FTS fiberglass tanks.

Why underground fiberglass water tanks?

Fiberglass tanks are also good for underground because they are made with a special resin. NSF resin is used to make the tank and then a heated post-cure is done to the tank. That ensures that you get high-quality drinking water wherever you need it.

When buried under the frost line underground drinking water storage tanks will not freeze. This means they can be used in harsh climates that get extremely cold. They can also be used in warmer climate that do not often see a frost or freeze.

Another reason is because fiberglass underground water tanks are stronger than the poly counterpart. They also withstand UV ruin if they are stored outside.  Also, fiberglass has a longer life cycle than any other tank made from poly, steel, or concrete.

Underground fiberglass storage tank allows for collection of rainwater for on-demand treatment. After the on-demand treatment the water is safe for drinking in areas where well water may not meet the quality demands.

Finally, fiberglass underground water tanks work well in small spaces. You do not need to worry if you have enough space on your property. Burying a fiberglass underground water tank allows you to store enough drinking water for any size operation or family.

Underground fiberglass water tanks are the best option and most often chosen. That is because they are designed to prevent bacteria and other foreign elements from contaminating the drinking water. Foreign elements include animal feces, dead animals, and other bacteria.These underground drinking water tanks are meant to be installed underground. They are custom made to your needs, including the system sections.These underground fiberglass drinking water storage tanks meet all standards. These standards come from the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and other regulating bodies. Some of the standards include:
  • NSF Standard 61
  • Safe Drinking Water Act

Then, there are state standards that must be met as well. These standards may differ slightly by state. NST knows the state and local regulations of each state we serve. We make sure we meet all the regulations governing underground potable water.

Where can underground fiberglass water tanks be found?

There are many areas that can use underground fiberglass water tanks. Some of those are:

  • Native Tribal Lands
  • Seaside Communities
  • Rural Communities that do not receive city water
  • National Forest Facilities
  • Campgrounds
  • Rural industrial or agricultural centers
  • Resorts even in large cities, so they are not a drain on the city water

  • Municipal (city) drinking water who use systems that are not as secure or who are expanding and the water supply is no longer large enough
