Our industrial water storage tanks can be made form one of several materials, depending on your specific application, material requirements, capacity needs and budget. Our standard materials include:
Each material is paired with either a EPDM rubber, Buna-N or Viton gaskets depending on the application, and either standard, galvanized or stainless steel hardware, which can be poly-capped or fully encapsulated to prevent leaks and corrosion. The types of materials used depend on the contents of the tank, as potable water, non-potable water, contaminated water, wastewater and other fluids have different properties, some of which require enhanced protection against corrosion, chemical reactions or other causes of gasket failure.
At Gulf Coast Tank & Construction, we offer a wide variety of water storage tanks. Our tanks can be used to store both non-potable water for agricultural or industrial uses as well as wastewater for treatment and disposal. We also offer food-grade tanks for potable water storage that meet EPA, USDA and NSF Standard 61 requirements for storage of drinking water.
At Gulf Coast Tank & Construction, we manufacture some of the highest quality water storage tanks available, using materials that are second to none. Each water tank meets or exceeds all applicable industry specifications, including the AWWA, NFPA, API, and FM Global standards. Our knowledgeable staff has more than 100 years of combined industry experience, ensuring that our tanks are constructed to precise standards, with reliable performance and long-lasting quality.
At Gulf Coast Tank & Construction, our extensive industry knowledge and experience allow us to offer a storage solution that goes above and beyond those offered by our competitors. We use only the highest quality materials in our storage tanks, conforming to strict ASTM and API guidelines. We feature a dedicated manufacturing, sales and project management team, along with experienced, safe, and responsible field staff who work diligently to provide you with the best storage solution for your budget. Our tanks install quickly, offer superior durability, and they are built to last.
We also offer full project management services to help you through the construction process, from building the foundation to connecting the last fitting, and we also offer full repair services for both bolted tanks and other types of storage solutions. If your capacity needs increase in the future, we can also help you consider options for expansions, such as adding to your existing bolted tank or installing additional tanks.
Cost depends greatly on several factors, including the type of tank, the materials used, the capacity of the tank, and the specific installation requirements. Bolted water storage tanks often cost less than concrete or welded steel storage tanks, or are extremely competitive, especially when the extra labor, maintenance and overall lifespan of the competing products are considered. Tanks that require stainless steel for food purposes typically cost more than carbon steel tanks. Specific installation characteristics—such as a limited amount of space for the installation or complex plumbing requirements—may also affect the cost.
Installing Water Storage Tanks
At Gulf Coast Tanks, we install all types of water storage tanks for a variety of purposes, from fire protection to industrial wastewater storage. The first step is to find the ideal location for the water storage tank’s installation. For instance, farmers will want the tank to be near where there livestock feeds, while certain industrial guidelines might dictate where wastewater-holding tanks can be placed.
Once a spot has been chosen, the soil will be tamped down and have all rocks and other foreign matter removed from the area to ensure that nothing interferes with the tank’s base. A minimum of three inches of road based crusher will be added and the soil tamped down again.
The next step is the concrete foundation. Our foundation experts will determine the exact needs for your foundation depending upon the project at hand. This might mean a simple grade band foundation, concrete ring wall, or a complete concrete slab foundation. As a good rule of thumb, this foundation will be at least 24-inches larger than the selected water tank to ensure complete stability. We also recommend instituting a retaining wall circling this concrete base as washout, burrowing animals, and other environmental factors can degrade the base over time.

The Benefits of Underground Water Storage Tanks
Underwater ground storage tanks are the ideal solutions for a variety of situations. From property owners in remote rural areas who need a reliable water system to commercial properties requiring steady water supplies for manufacturing, there are a whole host of reasons people come to us for their water storage needs. Here are a few of the benefits of underground water storage tanks we tell them about:
Investing in Underground Water Storage Tanks
Underground water storage tanks offer a variety of benefits for both residential and commercial clients. Having a fresh supply of potable water on hand enables your facility to better handle extreme weather and natural disasters, as well as expedite operations for agricultural-based businesses.
However, to guarantee potability, it’s important to ensure underground water storage tanks are correctly installed to protect against foreign contaminants. Make sure your underground water storage tank has key safety features like:
“We opened a large manufacturing facility for baked goods and required several food-grade tanks for ingredient storage. Gulf Coast Tank & Construction worked closely with our team to meet our budget requirements and local regulations.”
“We require significant amounts of water for cooling and cleaning during our manufacturing process, and our old tank was simply not enough to store contaminated water. The folks at GCT worked with us to install a new tank, with minimal disruption to our daily operations. Great job!”
