Onion Tank for Secondary Containment

Onion Containment Tank

Question: I am in need of an onion tank for secondary containment under some vehicles and potentially a tank or drum. I am looking at the orange tank I found on your site and I was wondering if this tank can be used for secondary containment? It seems like it is only flat on the ground. How big can it be?

This is specifically designed to help ease the containment process as tanks only have to be carried and placed under a leak once it has occurred.
