Let us put our experience to work for you. We have been manufacturing quality fiberglass potable water tanks since 1974. Our tanks are built to last. We use only the highest quality resins and glass fiber to build our fiberglass tanks. We are committed to building the very best fiberglass tank money can buy. LFM uses the latest manufacturing techniques, utilizing the most advanced chop and filament winding equipment available. This insures the utmost quality in our fiberglass products. LFM’s production facility covers over 83,000 ft2 and is situated on 35 acres just east of Giddings, Texas.
Our fiberglass potable water tanks eliminate the need for additional corrosion protection, such as interior painting and cathodic protection systems for above-ground and underground installations. Because of the anti-corrosive nature of our fiberglass tanks, the need for costly maintenance and repainting is eliminated, which offers considerable savings over steel tanks. And because our fiberglass potable water tanks are corrosion-free, the risk of leakage and content contamination is greatly reduced.
Our fiberglass tanks are built to meet or exceed the strict requirements of ASTM D3299 and ANS/AWWA D120 specifications to assure our customers of the highest structural integrity, durability, and corrosive resistance.
Our fiberglass potable water tanks are an economical alternative to steel and polyethylene tanks. A fiberglass tank from LFM weighs approximately 60% less than a steel tank, which makes installation easier and less time consuming. In addition, our fiberglass tanks are stronger, more durable, and have a longer service life than polyethylene tanks, making them an outstanding economic value.
LFM also builds tanks to conform to the Texas Commission for Environmental Quality’s specifications for storage of potable water. This allows rural water companies, subdivisions, municipalities and others, who are selling or providing water to more than one household, the ability to use fiberglass tanks for the storage of their water supply.
LFM knows the importance of keeping your water fresh and clean. Our fiberglass potable water tanks are corrosion-resistant to the minerals and chemicals found in water. Steel tanks may rust and corrode, which affects the quality of the water stored inside. Our fiberglass potable water tanks will continue to keep your water fresh and clean with no corrosion to the tank. LFM’s fiberglass potable water tanks are FDA, USDA, and AWWA approved for storage of potable water.
Our fiberglass potable water tanks are manufactured to meet our customer’s required dimensions. Standard tanks are available in diameters from 2’ through 15.5’. LFM can also custom design and manufacture fiberglass potable water tanks for almost any size, shape, or service requested. Contact your LFM sales professional to find out which sizes best fit your specific needs.
LFM can build fiberglass tanks with many different options and fittings. Some of these include various FRP flanges, manways, sight glasses, ladder cages, insulation, as well as other specialty fixtures.
At LFM, we maintain our own fleet of delivery trucks which are specifically equipped for transporting fiberglass tanks. This helps to keep delivery costs to our customers low. We employ a professional delivery staff whose primary goal is to see that our fiberglass tanks are delivered on time and in a safe and professional manner. And as an added benefit, our fiberglass potable water tanks are light-weight, making them easier to handle during loading and unloading, further reducing delivery costs.
We stand behind the products we build. Our fiberglass potable water tanks carry a one-year warranty. For further information, see the warranty section of our brochure.
