One of the above tank was used for storing sodium hypochlorite at 17%
and were warranteed for three  years by the manufacturer. This configuration is shipped daily throughout the
United States because of value and availability. Taken off the truck this containment system is ready to go. Or
try our poly safe double wall tanks or our poly safe tank systems; a vertical or upright poly tank with a poly
containment basin. Read about our poly containment basins
and "safe" double wall, self-contained covered, plastic chemical storage tanks.
The Chlorine Institute, Inc., Phamplet 96 titled SODIUM
HYPOCHLORITE MANUAL, Edition 2, May 2000, Section 6.2, Storage
Containers, Subsection 184.108.40.206, Materials of Construction, paragraph c), reads:
"Sodium hypochlorite users and manufacturers have had success with
high density linear polyethylene tanks, however, high density cross-linked polyethylene
should not be used. Vertical stress cracking has been experienced with the cross-linked
polyethylene storage tanks in this service."
This has, and continues to be Sierra Sales's, and Sierra Sales's customers'
experiences. Sierra Sales offers a better warranty along with better pricing for this service. Order Phamplet 96

and see for yourself. Why has cross-linked poly been spec'd so often? At one time it was the "only" resin
available. The original cross-linked polyethylene resins are no longer available and, the rotational equipment
is usually out-dated compared to our modern equipment.
