Plastic Containment Sumps

Poly Sumps for Secondary Containment

Question: I am looking for plastic containment sumps. Basically I am looking for a big tub made of plastic. We need something that can hold at least 600 gallons. The tanks we are storing on going to be on a rack, would we would need something that could go underneath a tank? We need to store two 500 gallon tanks. What do you have available?

plastic containment sumpAnswer: There are a couple of different options available for the type of storage you have described. The first would be the Secondary Containment Sump. This secondary containment product is designed almost exactly as you have described, but would only be available in capacities of 275 or 1100 gallons.

The 1100 gallon option (shown right) may be able to hold the capacity of both your tanks if the correct spacing and sizing is an option for you.
