The main two types of agriculture tanks that we provide throughout the UK are potable and non-potable water storage tanks. Below is an explanation on both types of tanks that we are able to manufacture and supply. We will also cover the different purposes and applications for both;-
Potable Storage Tanks – Commonly referred to as vertical water storage tanks or drinking water tanks, potable storage tanks are tanks that provide complete safety for human consumption. Our modern plastic tanks helps to prevent the formation of algae even when the water tank is stored outdoor. In agriculture, potable water storage are also commonly used for the storage of drinking water for cattle.
Non-Potable Storage Tanks – Ridge Product Services also able to manufacture and supply non-potable storage tanks for agriculture. Non-potable tanks are non-drinking tanks that can be used for a number of other purposes, that provide an efficient way of storing water for re-use whilst minimising waste. In agriculture, non-potable storage tanks are normally used for storage of slurry.
Rainwater Storage Tanks
Storage tanks in agriculture are also becoming increasingly popular for collecting rainwater for re-use. This rise in popularity here is directly related to the emphasis on increased sustainability and being environmentally-friendly. This is also allowing farms to benefit from a free water source with over 10% of farms throughout the UK benefiting from saving costs, and better using natural resources such as water.
