Installation Instructions (continued)
Selection of Site and Preparation (continued)
It is recommended that if at all possible, dikes should be constructed around the tank. These
dikes can be earthen or whatever is available. However, they should be at least 3/4 of the tank
filled height with a minimum of a 3 ft. base. The cross section of the dike would form a triangle
with a minimum of 1.5:1 slope.
Layout of Tanks
Position packaged tank on site and proceed with unpacking taking care not to damage tank with
sharp objects, tools or with packing box nails.
Remove tank from shipping container, unfold and center in the prepared site. Remove all
pressure sensitive tape or other covering from fitting areas and inspect. Visual inspection of all
fittings should be made to insure all sealing surfaces are free of contamination. Use caution to
prevent foreign materials from entering the fitting openings. Visually inspect vent and
filler/discharge covers for cleanliness and proper sealing of "O" rings. Assemble the items and
secure to tank, following the recommended torque rates stencil the tank.
