Benefits of MARS Stainless Steel Test Tanks

Stainless Steel provides a longer lasting test tank system of 25+ years (as compared to a 5-7 year life span of galvanized tanks)

Reduce space requirements in the meter shop

Unlike galvanized tanks, stainless steel tanks do not leech elements and other contaminants into the water system as the tanks deteriorate.
