In-ground floating roof water storages are now a genuine alternative to steel water tanks when considering larger installations
Floating roof structures have advantages over steel tanks:
The construction costs of an inground floating roof reservoirs dramatically reduces, as the stored volume and the depth of the storage increases
The development of high strength, UV resistant, polymer materials used in the construction of floating roof storage’s has progressed rapidly in the last 10 years. A wide variety of polypropylene, elvaloy and polyethylene sheet is available with tensile strengths up to 8000kg/m width. Materials typically come with a manufacturers 20 year guarantee against UV degradation.
