Water Soakers Description

How Tank Water Soakers Work

Simply lower the Water Soaker through the fill point or inspection chamber of your fuel tank, letting it sink into place at the bottom of the tank, and secure using the attached cord.  Water is fully absorbed, the nylon bladder expands into the mesh containment tube and then should be removed and discarded responsibly. It is recommended that each Water Soaker should be inspected weekly and replaced at least every three months.

Condensation occurs in all fuel storage tanks & causes contamination in the form of water that settles on the bottom of the tank - remove this water using a "Water Soaker".

How To Use:

  • Lower the water soaker into the tank, attach using the 3m cord (ensure it’s sitting on the bottom of the tank)
  • When water is fully absorbed, the nylon bladder expands into the mesh containment tube
  • Check weekly
  • All versions are 300mm long
  • WS2 (diameter when full of water: 56mm) absorbs 489ml
  • WS3 (diameter when full of water: 100mm) absorbs 1.59L

Bio Diesel Bugs

Water can enter your tank and contaminate the fuel stored inside. Due to its density, water sinks to the bottom and is a fundamental cause of bacteria growth when in contact with new Bio Diesels. Commonly called 'Bugs in Fuel', if not removed, these 'Bugs' reproduce and create a Bio Film which contaminates the inside of your tank. Their waste produces more water and a sludge that is the main cause of machinery damage and failure, leading to costly downtime and loss of productivity. Using Water Soakers can limit the risk, as its clever design means that it attracts water and absorbs it.

Water Soakers Delivery Information


The delivery of a tank can be confusing as each manufacturer offers a slightly different service and lead time. Please refer to our Delivery Information page.  Standard tank deliveries are "kerbside" which means the tank will be delivered to the kerb only and not positioned further. Should you have specific delivery requirements or restrictions, please contact us to discuss.


Tanks Over 2500L – Articulated Lorry – Customer Offload:

These tanks will be delivered on an articulated vehicle (approximately 16.5m long x 2.6m wide x 3m high) which has no offloading on board, it is the customer's responsibility to offload the tank, which may require a telehandler / forklift.  Curtain sided vehicles are also used, so please note that if there are obstacles or hanging branches on the road to the delivery site etc, the driver may refuse to drive the vehicle to the customer's location due to the possibility of damaging the vehicle. Please let us know if there are any obstructions before delivery, so we can arrange alternative transport.


18 Tonne Tail Lift HGV

This vehicle is the size of the largest bin lorries (for comparison) and is approximately 8.2m long x 2.6m wide x 4m high, often curtain sided so please note that if there are hanging branches etc, these vehicles will not attempt to drive down due to the possibility of damaging the vehicle and so it is recommended that a smaller vehicle is requested. Tanks will be lowered to the ground but not positioned as this is a kerbside delivery.  If a smaller vehicle is required, please email us at sales@fueltankshop.co.uk quoting your order number and name.


HIAB Delivery

HIAB delivery is available but must be requested and there will be an additional cost for this service. If a HIAB delivery is required, please email us at sales@fueltankshop.co.uk quoting your order number and name, and we will come back to you with a price for this service.



Most accessories will be delivered within 1-3 working days (certain products and postcodes may take longer, please check the product page for update to date information). If you require them quicker, we can on occasions offer a next day service (please contact us to discuss).
