High qual­ity steel tanks come with a bonus

Pre­par­ing an over­all plan for your rain­wa­ter har­vest­ing and wa­ter stor­age is crit­i­cal ac­cord­ing to David Mor­timer, di­rec­tor of Tankworks, who are the largest man­u­fac­turer of steel wa­ter tanks in the coun­try.

Tak­ing the time to cal­cu­late the catch­ment area, rain­fall rates and pro­posed us­age such as stock wa­ter­ing, ir­ri­ga­tion, fire-fight­ing and house­hold sup­ply means that the im­por­tant de­ci­sions on tank size and tank con­fig­u­ra­tion can be con­fi­dently made based on all the rel­e­vant in­for­ma­tion.

“I have seen many cus­tomers think big­gest is best but not re­al­is­ing with the given catch­ment it will rarely fill or, on the flip side, they have pur­chased an un­der­sized tank and then have needed to add ad­di­tional tanks later on, which ends up be­ing a more ex­pen­sive ex­er­cise”, says David Mor­timer.

Tankworks Aus­tralia has been man­u­fac­tur­ing long-last­ing steel rain­wa­ter tanks since 1934 and is ex­pe­ri­enced in pro­vid­ing ad­vice and sup­port. With lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tion and fac­to­ries in each state on the east coast Tankworks is well set up with ex­panded de­liv­ery ca­pa­bil­i­ties to of­fer a wide range of prod­ucts to dairy farm­ers.

“The wa­ter tank game is very com­pet­i­tive and it’s tempt­ing to cut out fea­tures and op­tions to have a great en­try level price. How­ever we de­cided early on to keep im­por­tant fea­tures in the tank such as true Z450 gal­vanised walls and heavy duty ge­o­fab­ric to sup­ply a prod­uct we are proud of and know will stand the test of time. Many cus­tomers are see­ing this value and mak­ing an ed­u­cated de­ci­sion”, ex­plained Mr Mor­timer.

The Tankworks tanks come in ca­pac­i­ties from 24,000 to 370,000 litres in a wide range of colours, and with seven layer heavy duty polypropy­lene lin­ers. Farm­ers can fully cus­tomise their tank with ad­di­tional out­lets, in­lets and over­flows as re­quired. Each tank is fully in­stalled on-farm by lo­cal qual­i­fied staff.
