Plastic Water Tanks Are Black Inside, White Outside

Delivering plastic water tanks to dealers across Canada, Don Kohle, sales manager with Free Form Plastic Products in St. Brieux, Sask., found that during the summer, the black tanks tended to "cave in." "The sun made the black poly soft and extremely hard to secure to the trailer," he says. "I kept insisting that there must be a way to build a stronger tank but with the same algae - preventing qualities of a black tank."
  The good thing about black tanks is that they stop photosynthesis, which causes algae growth in tanks.
  In response to Kohle's questions, the company's design team, headed by Neil Eisner, came up with a patent pending process to create a poly tank that's black on the inside and white on the outside, which eliminates algae growth inside and prevents heat damage on the outside. It's called the Generation II Water Tank.
  The plastic is seamless and won't flake or peel. Tank sizes range from 1,500 to 4,440 U.S. gal.
