Can floating covers be used in potable water storage tanks?

Floating covers for potable water storage serve as a protective barrier, preventing contamination and evaporation. Composed of geotextile liners, these covers create a sealed layer that maintains water quality by shielding it from external elements. The floating mechanism adapts to the water's surface level, ensuring consistent coverage.

This approach is particularly important for reservoirs and water storage facilities tasked with preserving clean and safe drinking water supplies. When selecting a cover material, keep in mind that only some types of synthetic geomembranes are ANSI-certified for potable water storage. Materials with this certification should always be used when storing water for human consumption.
