Flexible Tanks - Recent Price Trend

Prices for flexible tanks declined at the start of the three-year period to 2017, but an uptick in prices at the beginning of 2017 has flattened the annualized growth of market prices during this period to virtual zero. The lack of price growth, in addition to heavy competition among suppliers (which encourages them to keep price shifts minimal), has benefited buyers. The resulting low price.

Flexible Tanks - Total Cost of Ownership

The total cost of ownership for flexible tanks is low. Luckily for buyers, there are minimal hidden costs associated with flexible tanks. The primary cost that suppliers may encounter is the cost of a pump, which is typically $300 to $1,000. Since, on average, the most common sized flexible tank ranges from 10,000 gallons to 20,000 gallons, filling the tanks is a slow and sometimes difficult.
