Do you offer tanks that can take water from bores, dams & rivers?
Yes. We can provide you with a water tank that has facilities ready to take on water from most water sources.
What set up do you recommend for a cattle tank?
If you are taking water from a bore, dam or river, we recommend (where possible) that you install your water inlet at the bottom wall of your water tank.
It might seem unusual but the best water tank performance comes from bottom inlets. As a last resort you can use a top inlet. Call our consultants about your solution.
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.
