  • Assess the site to make sure it's suitable for the installation

  • Choose an appropriate tank type based on your intended use
  • Decide on the tank size and capacity
  • Mark the excavation area and clear any obstructions
  • Dig the pit to the required depth and dimensions
  • Lay a stable, level base to support the tank and prevent settling
  • Lower the tank into the pit carefully to make sure it's level and properly aligned
  • Anchor the tank if necessary to prevent floating or shifting
  • Backfill the area to protect the tank and provide support
  • Compact the soil to ensure stability
  • Connect any required piping while making sure all connections are secure
  • Perform a pressure test and inspection to verify that the system works correctly
