There are three primary types of water tanks that can be used for underground purposes.

The three primary types of water tanks used underground are:

  •       Concrete
  •       Fiberglass
  •       Plastic

Concrete underground water tanks when placed underground are fireproof and it helps to take any acidity out of the water. They do tend to keep your water at very cool temperatures which keeps the water from having an abundance of bacteria.  Concrete tanks are very sturdy and completely free of chemicals.

They are the least expensive of the three choices which makes them an obvious choice for some. However, concrete water tanks are extremely heavy and take up a great amount of space. They typically only last between 15-20 years before some of the components will need to be replaced.

Fiberglass underground water tanks are the least popular and the least effective of the three options. They are however, made of corrosion proof materials that eliminates that the problem that other tanks have with corrosion.
