Jason’s Home Improvement Water Storage Journey

Jason Maurer from Batesford, Victoria


Jason Maurer is in the process of making a few changes on his and his family’s one-acre block in Batesford, Victoria.

With plans to install a large shed, 2000 sqm2 worth of grass and eventually become more self-reliant for household water consumption, Jason found himself in the market for a reliable water tank early this year.

He took to Facebook and discovered a few water tank providers, and ended up settling on local business Specialised Tank Services – a proud member of the Pioneer Dealer Direct Network®.

“I liked that they were local, and they were also the cheaper option – plus the tanks looked good,” reflects Jason.


Settling on a GT110 (110,000L) in Monument, the Specialised Tank Services installed Jason’s new tank in March this year.

“Initially I want to use the tank to irrigate my new area of lawn,” says Jason.

“Down the line, especially if I find the tank has more than I need in the summer, I’ll look at setting up a plumbing system in the house.”

Jason’s new shed will also be connected to the tank, allowing him to capture a considerably larger amount of rainfall.

“Originally I wasn’t going to go so big, but I think it’ll work well now that we’re connecting the shed.

“I’m happy that I’ve put it in now so I can catch the winter rainfall in preparation for spring and summer.

“When I was thinking about purchasing a water tank, in the back of my mind I was thinking about being more resourceful with our water consumption. If I don’t need to be paying a water bill, then all the better. It’s something I’ll be planning over the next 12 months.”

What was Jason’s experience with the Specialised Tank Services team?

“They were good – they turned up on time and the build was done in a day. The installers cleaned up after themselves, there was no rubbish, and everything was really good.

“The communication with the office was also very straightforward.”
