Water tanks are used as reservoirs for fluids of various types. If you’re looking for a water tank to transport fluid for your business, it is important that you find a good tank that offers the functionality and safety required for a successful haul. To give you a better idea of what you should be looking for when you purchase your water tank, we’ve provided a list of important features to check. Use this list to determine whether or not the water tank you’re looking at is right for the job.
Make sure that the chemical you will be storing is compatible with the material and fitting of the tank.
Make sure that your tank is properly vented to prevent pressure or vacuum from developing.
Check for leaks and cracks on the exterior of the tank to be certain that it is in quality condition to safely transport chemical.
If purchasing separately, confirm that the size of the tank is compatible with the trailer/truck that you have to carry it.
Once you’ve found the right tank, you’ll want to make sure that you have an experienced installation team to properly locate and secure it on your truck. If you purchased the tank and the truck/trailer together, check to make sure that it is properly installed and ready to go. After you’ve got your tank set for transport, develop a list of safety requirements for operators. These will include important steps like preventing excessive heat in and around the tank and using Material Safety Data Sheets for each stored product.
