Tanks are products designed for storing liquids based on their usage and location. They ensure the long-term preservation of water and liquid materials, allowing us to retrieve and utilize them when needed. During droughts and water shortages, tanks become essential lifesaving products. However, if certain specifications are not considered when purchasing a tank, they can cause more harm than good.
Various tank manufacturers exist both in our country and worldwide. Consequently, there are various models and alternatives of these tanks widely used in homes and workplaces. In this content, we will provide you with information about what to consider when thinking about purchasing or buying a water tank, and the process to follow.
Choose a Water Tank Based on Its Intended Use
Water is an indispensable resource for sustaining life on our planet. We actively consume water both as drinking water and for general use in our homes. Therefore, when choosing a water storage tank, it's important to pay attention to the purpose for which you intend to use it. The tanks produced by our company are made using plastic, polyester, and stainless-steel materials. These tanks have specific purposes and applications that correspond to the materials they are made from. Therefore, when selecting a tank, the product's characteristics hold great importance.
If your purpose is to store drinking water, then a polyethylene water tank made from polyethylene material is the right choice due to its ergonomic design and affordable price. These tanks, produced using polyethylene material, come in various models, including vertical, horizontal, and corner prismatic, with capacities of up to 25 tons. Additionally, we also offer stainless steel tanks for storing drinking water. These stainless-steel tanks, produced using stainless chrome material, are available with capacities of up to 100 tons. However, stainless steel tanks are generally more expensive compared to those made from polyethylene material. Consequently, they are preferred for places with dense populations, such as shopping malls, factories, stadiums, and residential complexes. In summary, while polyethylene tanks are suitable for individual use, stainless steel tanks are often preferred in areas with high population densities.
Fiberglass tanks, which we produce using polyester material, are ideal for storing general-use water. These tanks, with capacities of up to 100 tons, are designed to accommodate high water consumption.
In our tank production, we use high-quality materials that are free from carcinogenic substances. Additionally, we use antibacterial materials to prevent bacterial growth inside the tanks. If you are planning to purchase a tank, you should choose the right one according to its intended use and pay attention to the general characteristics of the tanks.
Choose the Right Size of Tank According to Its Usage Location
In our industry, vertical, horizontal, corner prismatic, and leg-supported silo models of tanks are manufactured. Each tank has different features, capacities, and dimensions. Therefore, the dimensions of the area where the tank will be placed are crucial in your selection process. For instance, we offer small-capacity tanks with dimensions of 54 cm in height and 37 cm in width. At the same time, we produce tanks suitable for high-capacity liquid storage with dimensions of 450 cm in height and 290 cm in width. It is essential to choose products that are suitable for the dimensions of the intended area when researching and purchasing tanks.
Without considering the appropriate dimensions for the usage location, problems can arise when placing the tanks or during their use. In such cases, customers often return and exchange tanks for ones with suitable dimensions, which can result in unnecessary economic costs due to transportation expenses. Therefore, when choosing tanks, the dimensions of the products are of utmost importance.
Quality of Raw Material Matters in Water Tank Production
Various raw materials and components are used in the production of tanks. Especially in the production of plastic tanks using polyethylene material, the quality of the raw material is crucial. Various raw materials are produced in Europe, Asia, and Africa. As a company, we use high-quality LLDPE polyethylene material imported from Europe for our production. We ensure that the polyethylene material used in production does not pose any health risks. The material we use is known as "food grade," meaning it is suitable for storing drinking water and liquid food. Thanks to this advantage, our tanks are suitable for containing drinking water and liquid food.
For tanks produced using polyester material or stainless-steel chrome, we use products obtained from suppliers in Europe and Turkey. This ensures that all our tanks are manufactured to international standards. With certificates from Turkey's leading certification bodies, we validate the quality of our tanks and offer you storage tanks that meet health standards.
Pay Attention to the Color of the Tank
The color of the tank is particularly important when choosing plastic tanks. Since polyethylene material is used in production, the outer layer of the tank consists of plastic material. Therefore, if the tank is placed indoors, white-colored tanks should be preferred. On the other hand, if the tank will be placed in a sunny area exposed to UV rays, blue-colored tanks should be chosen.
Having the external color of the tank in blue will largely prevent sunlight from entering the interior of the tank. This will result in a longer period for algae formation inside the tank compared to white tanks. Furthermore, the prevention of algae growth also stops the production of bacteria in the non-algal liquid. Therefore, choosing the appropriate tank color according to the usage area is of paramount importance.
For tanks produced with polyester and stainless steel, the color does not play a significant role. Due to the materials used, these tanks are produced with resistance to sunlight.
How to Clean and Maintain Tanks?
Tanks containing water and liquids, if only intended for storage, can develop sediment at the bottom over time. If tanks are constantly in liquid circulation, such problems are less likely to occur quickly. However, during long-term water and liquid storage, issues like these often arise.
When algae growth, sediment formation, or dirt accumulation is detected inside the tank, it must be cleaned immediately. For the sake of preserving human health and the quality of the stored liquid, we recommend cleaning the tank every 3-4 months. After completely emptying the tanks, they should be thoroughly washed using pressurized water, and the washing water should be drained completely from the tank. After allowing the tank to dry for a certain period, it will become suitable for use again. Additionally, the tank interiors should be disinfected at regular intervals to prevent bacterial growth.
Warranty and Replacement of Tanks are Essential Aspects
All tanks produced by our company come with a warranty. The tanks are covered against manufacturing defects that might occur during the production process. When purchasing a product, it's crucial to ensure that it is backed by the company's guarantee. As a company, we are always here to assist our customers. As part of our business ethics, we provide support even in cases of tank problems caused by users years later. We guide our customers through any problem and provide immediate assistance with our expert team when necessary.
Which Tanks to Choose for Narrow Entrances?
Plastic products are produced using rotational mold technology, resulting in a monobloc structure known as a single-body structure. There is no additional welding or joining processes. Therefore, when looking for tanks with specific measurements for narrow entrances, you might not find suitable options in our plastic product range. However, thanks to the solutions of our R&D and Product Development departments, we provide the possibility of installing water tanks in any area.
For narrow entrances, we offer on-site installation services for polyester and stainless models. For instance, if you have a space with a narrow entrance but a spacious interior and you want to install a 50-ton or 100-ton tank, the tanks might not fit through the entrance as a single piece. However, for polyester or stainless models, we provide on-site installation options. All tank components are prepared according to the measurements of the installation site's entrance and transported to the site in this manner. Our expert team assembles and transforms these tank parts into a single piece on-site. In other words, rather than assembling and forming the tank into a single piece in a factory, this process is carried out in the usage area.
We have attempted to cover the main points to consider during the tank selection process. However, there are various aspects to be mindful of when buying a tank. As a company, we are always here to assist, and we thoroughly address all your questions with our expert team.
