Fiberglass tanks are the ideal storage solution for outdoor rainwater harvesting, water storage, fire protection, oil storage, liquid fertilizer, wastewater treatment, irrigation water, and so much more. Moreover, the easy installation and the ability to withstand harsh environmental conditions make fiberglass tanks a superb choice for storing petroleum, biodiesels, and ethanol blends. However, the price of fiberglass tanks depends on the type of tank and for what purpose it is used. Read ahead to learn more about the prices of fiberglass storage tanks for oil, and the cost of fiberglass septic tanks used for wastewater treatment.
Cost Of Fiberglass Oil Tanks
Fiberglass oil tanks can be installed inside or outside, and are meant to last anywhere from 30 to 40 years. Fiberglass oil tanks provide a sturdy and reliable option for oil and gas storage both above and below ground and are 100% fire, frost, impact, and weather resistant. The average cost of an oil tank replacement is $2,400 and the typical range for fiberglass oil tanks is anywhere from $1,200 to $4,600 depending on the tank size and whether you get an indoor, above-ground, or underground fiberglass oil tank installation. On average, above-ground oil tanks can cost between $1,250 and $2,500 and an underground oil tank is the most expensive option because it is necessary to hire someone with the expertise and experience to create the access hole for the underground tank. This can cost between $1,500 and $4,000 depending on the depth.
Fiberglass oil tanks are also available in double-wall construction which adds an additional layer of protection against leaks, and double-walled tanks are more expensive than single-walled tanks.
Cost Of Fiberglass Septic Tanks
When it comes to wastewater treatment solutions, rural and some suburban homes are usually not connected to municipal sewer lines that are usually used in more populated areas. It can be expensive to pay for sewer pipes that extend to a new construction site and septic tanks become a cost-effective alternative. These wastewater treatment systems are built underground to manage the treatment of wastewater by separating sludge while reintroducing liquids into the ground naturally.
Fiberglass septic tank costs are determined by several factors that include house size, soil permeability, and the type of waste breakdown system. Larger houses need bigger tanks, which can cost more to buy and install. The average fiberglass septic tank can range from $1,000 to $5,000 or more. It is also important to factor in that the cost of the septic tank is only one component of the overall cost of installing a fiberglass septic system. There are other expenses such as excavation, installation, permits, and any additional components such as a leach field, distribution box, and piping. These additional factors can increase the total cost of the septic tank installation.
