Fiberglass is the superior material for underground fuel tanks

Sign up to learn more about ZCL | Xerxes

Today’s biofuels and ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) are causing significant concerns about metallic corrosion of fuel system components, including the internal corrosion of steel storage tanks. In contrast, fiberglass underground storage tanks are corrosion-resistant inside and out, ensuring lasting durability and longer material lifecycles.

The ZCL | Xerxes advantage

  • Corrosion-resistant, inside and out
  • Longer material lifecycle
  • Lightweight for easy shipping and installation
  • 30-year limited warranty
  • Deep burial options
  • Subject to rust and corrosion
  • Subject to premature corrosion failure
  • Underground steel tanks weigh considerably more than fiberglass tanks of the same size, usually adding cost to the installation
  • Some steel tank warranties are limited to 10 years, and/or ongoing water maintenance requirements are a condition of warranty coverage
  • Generally limited to 5’ of burial depth
