Can I install a home heating tank outside?

Yes, a tank can be installed outside, however exposure to the elements like rain, wind, and snow, will take a toll on the tank’s structural integrity. Certain tanks have been specifically designed for outdoor installation like the Roth or the Granby Green Shield, but still need additional protection for the filter and lines. At CommTank, we recommend finding a suitable location inside the home, or building a containment shed to protect the tank. All outdoor tanks must be placed on a poured cement pad. Please see our Aboveground Tank Installation page for our outdoor recommendations.
