Tanks are constructed with slightly conical bottom to help provide complete drainage of most liquids. Skirt supported tanks have a 2” x 2” rolled angle at the base of the skirt to provide stability on concrete or other solid supporting surface. The standard outlet on skirted tanks is a 2” line piped out to the skirt perimeter-ADD $60.00 for 3” line. I-Beam supported tanks have a 2” threaded outlet in bottom center of the tank.
