Rain Water Storage Tanks

Benefits and Installation

Let us put our unmatched experience to work for you.  LFM has been building fiberglass reinforced plastic tanks and process vessels for a wide range of applications since 1974.  We utilize the latest chop and filament winding equipment available in the industry today, thus supplying our customers with the highest quality fiberglass structures on the market.  Our 83,000 ft2 factory is centrally located 50 miles east of Austin in Giddings, Texas, which helps us to better serve our customers.

Clean Drinking Water

Clean drinking water is a fundamental necessity of life.  Sometimes we take for granted the supply of clean drinking water.  LFM knows the importance of keeping your water supply clean and fresh.  We manufacture quality fiberglass Rainwater storage tanks that allow you to store water in an environmentally safe manner.  Our fiberglass tanks are corrosion resistant.  LFM’s fiberglass tanks keep water fresh and clean, and they are FDA, USDA and AWWA approved for the storage of potable water.


LFM fiberglass tanks weigh approximately 60% less than steel tanks, making installation easier, which can save money in the long run.  Also, our fiberglass tanks save money because they are more durable and have a longer service life than steel tanks.

Strong & Lasting Construction

Our fiberglass rain water storage tanks are engineered for the specific service conditions required by our customers.  LFM builds fiberglass tanks to provide a long and trouble-free service life.  Rain water 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.  We maintain individual inspection reports for each tank, recording such information as resin system used, actual material usage, fittings, accessories, and delivery destination.  The inspection reports are filed for future reference and copies are available upon request.  Our excellent inspection program assures that each of our customers receives the highest quality fiberglass products available.

Professional Delivery

We maintain our own fleet of delivery trucks which are specifically equipped for transporting fiberglass tanks.  We employ a professional delivery staff whose primary goal is to see to it that our fiberglass tanks are delivered on time and in a safe and professional manner.  As an added benefit, the light-weight nature of our fiberglass tanks also helps to cut delivery costs by making it easier to load and unload fiberglass equipment.
