550 Gal.rain Water Harvesting Collecting Tanks Norwesco:
550 gallon vertical tank.

The blackcolor limits light penetration which reduces the growth of water-borne algae.
These tanks are constructed for use with water only.

Frequently Asked Questions:
The Manufacturer uses a linear, high-density polyethylene resin that provides outstanding Environmental stress crack resistance. The resin is UV stabilized but by keeping the tank sheltered or indoors you will prolong the life of your tank.
ARE YOUR TANKS FDA APPROVED?
The resins used to manufacture our tanks meet specifications contained in FDA Regulations 21 CFR 177.1520, (c) 3.2 and so may be used as an article or component of articles intended for use in contact with food, subject to any limitations in the regulation.
WHAT TYPE OF SURFACE IS REQUIRED FOR PLACEMENT OF A VERTICAL TANK?
Inspect the surface to ensure a smooth, level area that will supply full bottom support. A properly constructed concrete pad that is capable of supporting the contents of the tank is the best support and is recommended above 2,000 gallons. Other materials such as very flat blacktop, or contained, packed sand or pea gravel have been used successfully. All surfaces must maintain uniform support through freeze/thaw, erosion and other disturbances.
WHAT IS THE WALL THICKNESS OF THIS TANK?
This tank is constructed to handle liquids with a specific gravity of 1.0 or 8.0 pounds per gallon. THIS MEANS THIS TANK CAN HOLD ONLY WATER!!! Because the wall thickness varies from top to bottom on a tank, it is not the best gauge for determining the quality of a tank. The very bottom of the tank is the thinnest part of the tank and is made that way to flex when the tank is empty or full. Generally the wall becomes thicker as you go from the top to the bottom of a vertical tank. This is done to increase resistance to head pressure created by the height of the liquid in the tank. The actual weight of the tank is also not a good comparison when shopping for tanks. Just because a competitor may use more material in the tank does not make it a better tank. That is determined by the resin, mold design and the steps taken during the rotomolding process.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE THAT YOUR TANKS WILL WITHSTAND?Polyethylene storage tanks have a maximum storage temperature of 120 degrees F. Contents with a temperature in excess of 120 degrees F-even for a short period of time-can weaken the tank's structural integrity and make it susceptible to deformation and failure.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY TANK IF I LEAVE IT OUTSIDE IN FREEZING TEMPERATURES?
The tank itself does not have a minimum temperature rating. If you plan to keep the liquid in the tank and you know that it will freeze, make sure that you leave room for expansion. The most likely part to crack on the tank is the bulkhead fitting which can be easily replaced.
CAN I STORE PETROLEUM PRODUCTS IN THE TANKS?
We recommend that you do not store petroleum products in our tanks because they will soften the tank walls.
HOW MANY YEARS WILL MY TANK LAST?
There is no good way to determine the life span of a polyethylene tank. Many variables can have an effect on the tank - what type of material is being stored in the tank? Is the tank used indoors or outdoors? If the tank is outdoors, what part of the country are you located in? Tanks used outdoors in Arizona or Florida are subjected to more intense sunshine than in Minnesota for example. UV rays will have a detrimental effect on the life span of any poly tank. Is the tank being used strictly for stationary storage or for transport? Each of these factors will have an effect on a polyethylene tank.
CAN YOUR TANKS BE PRESSURIZED?
No, our tanks cannot be pressurized.
CAN YOUR TANKS BE BURIED?
Tanks specifically designed for above ground use cannot be put underground. If it is put below ground, the weight of the earth around the tank will cause the walls to collapse. We do carry septic and cistern tanks that are designed to be buried.
