Onion Tank Applications
Onion tanks are designed for on-going use and have a long service life when well maintained. These portable tanks can be transported while empty and easily relocated, but they are not meant to be used to transport water.
Onion tanks are especially useful for bushfire fighting in remote locations, particularly as a water station for helicopter water buckets where they are filled from a shallower source. They can also function as a remote site's reliable water supply, such as drilling or exploration operations. The tank's lightweight flexibility allows it to serve as a temporary water storage that fits on the back of a vehicle or as a temporary farm and rural water tank that can be moved when needed. In addition, onion tanks can function for spill containment applications, particularly where fast deployment and filling of a tank are critical.
Waterplex onion tanks are versatile enough to be used with almost any fitting, including standard tank fittings, cam locks, and Storz fire fighting fittings.
