Self-Rising Onion Tanks
Question: I am wondering if you have a 1,000 gallon onion tank? I see that you have both low side and high side tanks. Is there any specific difference between these tanks other than the height of the side?
Answer: Thank you for contacting us! The Onion Tanks are designed in both a high side and low side tank version and typically features a self-rising foam collar. The typical height of a low side onion tank would be around 33 inches (33") while the height of a high side onion tank can be anywhere from 40 to 96 inches (40" to 96").
Onion Tank Construction
The construction of an Onion Tank is similar to the design of our collapsible tanks in the sense that the tank will be made from the fabric that is best equipped to handle your liquid material. Fabrics can include materials equipped to handle drinking water, as well as fuel, chemicals, and several other contaminated items.
In general, each Onion Tank typically contains the following features to help create a safe and self-supported containment tank:
- Reliable Material Construction
- Self-Rising Foam Collar
- Flange Fittings
- Several Specific Fittings Available Upon Request
- High or Low Side
- High Side Capacities: 250 to 20,000 gallons
- Low Side Capacities: 250 to 10,000 gallons
Due to its open top and ability to be self-supporting, these onion tanks have been used in a wide range of applications for storing liquids, such as drinking water, chemicals, fuel, nonpotable water, and more. Applications where you might find the Onion Tank in use include:
- Temporary Dump Containers
- Firefighting Water Storage
- Construction Site Water Supply
- Drinking Water Storage
- Decontamination Pools
- Secondary Containment for Tanks or Parts
- Chemical Mixing Tanks
- Hazardous Material Storage
When compared to other tanks, the 1,000 gallon Onion Tank can offer a self-supporting style, reliable storage options, and several different material options. Dimensions for both a high side and low side tank are as follows:

One of the best advantages for this type of tank is its ability to be deployed quickly in several different locations. When empty, this Onion Tank should lie flat, allowing the tank to be easily moved from one location to the next. This can be especially useful in emergency situations because it allows the portable tank to be quickly transported to new locations.
