Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We get questions all the time about our tire tanks. Here are some of the most common ones.

Are the tires you use new or used?

The majority of the tires we use are used. They have been taken off equipment because they have been punctured or just worn out. Most of the tires have been punctured in one of the sidewalls. That would be the side we would cut off. We acquire tires from mines and tire recyclers across the United States.

What if a rubber tire tank springs a leak?

This doesn't happen very often. But if it does, the best thing to do would be to contact us. Tell us exactly what the problem is and we can advise you on how to get it fixed. We will help you in every way possible. Our tanks are guaranteed and we stand behind that guarantee.

Do you deliver? If so, how far?

We are located just outside Mitchell, South Dakota. We can deliver our products to almost anywhere in the continental United States. Just give us a call and we'll arrange something.

How much water do your rubber tire tanks hold?

An 8' rubber tank typically holds about 650 to 750 gallons of water. A 10' rubber tank typically holds about 1,000 gallons of water.

What to use for the bottom?

When installing a water tank portland cement can be used. A small amount of gravel and water will be needed. There is no need to call your local concrete plant. This can very easily be done by yourself. You must have the tank on a good firm base. Only 5-6 inches of cement in the center of the tank is necessary. Be sure to mix the cement up so it is good and runny. This will allow it to run down under the bead and insure a good seal.
