Frequently Asked Questions:
Are your tanks suitable for irrigation purposes?
Yes, our water tanks manufactured and built for all sorts of applications and they will handle the rigours of irrigation.
Do you offer tanks for my home on a farm?
Yes, we can provide you with a water tank that has facilities ready to take on water harvested off a roof.
What setup do you recommend for an irrigation tank?
If you are taking water from a dam or bore, we recommend (where possible) that you install your inlet at the bottom wall of your water tank.
It might seem unusual but the best water tank performance comes from bottom inlets. If you water is coming from a roof we recommend the standard roof lead filter basket.
Why is a bottom inlet helpful?
Top inlets create tiny wave actions on the water service when water enters the tank and sometimes water can splash into the roof area. If you can, you should avoid this.
What other steps should I consider with a bottom inlet?
When you fill from a bottom inlet you should be pushing into a volume of water, water levels simply rise and fall, and there’s no splashing. You might be thinking there’s a lot of water inside pushing back into your inlet, that’s not the case.
When you send water to the top of a two-metre water tank you have two metres of head pressure. With this in mind, if the water level inside your tank is sitting at one metre you have one metre of head pressure, two metres equals two metres of head pressure and so on.
Do you have a gutter system for your tank?
No. In more than 30 years of trading, we have come across only a small number of people who have insufficient roof area to collect water. If you’re not sure, call our consultant for advice.
What features come with my water tank?
We provide a full suite of features; AQUALINER FRESH® tank liner, double fusion-welded liner seams, adaptive swivel foot roof truss connector, roof access hatch, external hook on ladder, 80mm overflow, 80mm outlet and valve (multiple if required), and 50mm inlet.
