Types of Water Tanks

Your drinking water supply can only be as fresh as the water tank and water supply system it comes into contact with.

The capability to harvest rainwater is becoming more prevalent for every day Australians.

Every day people are seeking to enhance current water supplies, or supply a water supply where one does not exist.

From city locals trying to find a compact water tank for their smaller block, to rural farmers counting on water to live and keep their plantations or animals alive.

Before determining what type or size water tank you may want, you need to spend a bit of time considering a series of elements to aid your decision making procedure.

So what styles of watertanks exist, and which one would be recommended for you? Should you acquire an above ground watertank or a below ground rainwater tank? Read on to discover more.

Plastic Water Tanks

There are a handful of selections for plastic watertanks, such as those produced from fibreglass, polyethylene (poly), and plastic bladder rainwater tanks. These all have their own strengths and downsides.

Poly Water Tanks

Poly rainwater tanks or polyethylene tanks, are some of the most popular plastic storage tanks that you can choose.  They are lightweight, prefabricated and easy to install. Polyethylene is a food grade plastic, which implies your water tank won't involve a plastic liner if utilised for drinking water. Poly tanks are commonly cheaper to create than lots of other water tank styles, typically making a poly tank more affordable.

A common characteristic among squat, round and slimline poly tanks, is that they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, catering for a vast array of domestic goals.

A slimline storage tank is produced to match places that have confined footprint accessibility, like down the side of a home, or on the side of a garden shed. These slimline storage tanks are generally smaller, and efficient for gardens and laundry, or supplementing a larger water tank.

If elevation is an issue, the squat poly tank may be an answer. This design of storage tank is commonly smaller than other styles which can enable it to sit beneath structures, and be out of the way.

For those with intermediate to medium water storage requirements, a round poly tank would be worth considering. With a capacity up to 50,000 litres, property owners can use one or multiple tanks together to create a water storage solution.

For some people seeking to eliminate a watertank from the eyeline all together, setting up an underground tank could be an alternative. The trad off for such an outcome might be ease of access if something were to fail with the tank, or if it needed to be moved.

Fibreglass Tanks

The fibreglass tank solution is more in line with an industrial or semi commercial application. It's not a recommended selection for those looking for a residential application.

If you are looking at making use of a fibreglass water tank, you need to be aware of the possibility for it to become fragile and leak over time, so routine checks are suggested.

Bladder Tanks

bladder tank suburban types of water tanks

Incorporating a plastic bladder with a steel frame is the plastic bladder storage tank.

These water tank are commonly installed under decking or related areas where there is very little space, and capture rainwater through a series of pipes.

If your prospective water consumption is on the scaled-down side, then you may discover that a plastic water tank will more than accomplish the job for you.

This situation will start to change however when water storage capacity needs near the fifty thousand litre mark.

Poly tanks similarly perform badly in bushfire scenarios compared to steel or concrete water tanks, with the water tank melting, and the water inside evacuating rapidly.

Steel Water Tanks

The steel water tank has been a water storage option for a long period of time. Just like most things, more recent technologies have made it possible for the steel rainwater tank to become a lot more stronger and more resilient.

Problems steel rainwater tanks previously had with corrosion and tank roofs have been resolved with changes to the product as time has passed, with liners and modular designs revolutionising the product.

Liner Tanks

Found on most rural properties across Australia, steel rainwater tanks consist of external panels bolted together, with a tank liner inside protecting the steel tank walls from the water. This tank liner is made from a food safe plastic, or in Pioneer Water Tanks’ case, an antimicrobial polyethylene film inside the liner, which helps keep drinking water fresher for longer.


This plastic lining is one of the most important parts of a steel tank, and is why most steel water tank manufacturers recommend never entering your water tank, or attempting to clean it without the assistance of an expert.

These steel tanks also typically come installed with a sacrificial anode, which protects the steel in the tank walls from corrosion. Once made of galvanised steel, liner water tanks are typically constructed of Zincalume® or Colorbond® steel, which are metal alloys stronger and more corrosion resistant than the traditional galvanised tank.

These steel tanks can also come installed with a roof catchment or gutter system, in order to increase your rainwater harvesting capacity.

Stainless Steel tanks

Water Tanks made from stainless steel do not have the drawbacks of corrosion like other metal tank systems do, and do not require a tank liner. However a plastic lining or seam is still required where the sheets are joined.


Stainless steel tanks are, however significantly more expensive than other water tank materials, and a stainless steel water tank is typically not required when steel tanks with a liner, or glass reinforced plastic tanks can do a similar job much more affordably.

One of the key advantages of a steel water tank is their strength, 

with many steel water tanks having survived fire fronts,

and providing key assistance in firefighting efforts all across Australia.

Concrete Tanks

concrete types of water tanks

The concrete water tank is, as the name may suggest, the most heavy-duty of the water tank options, and with the advent of modern plastic and steel tanks, the concrete tank has gone slightly out of vogue.


The weight of concrete tanks makes them difficult to transport, and they require flushing and sealing before use for drinking water, as their construction can increase the pH of water. If a concrete tank cracks or leaks, the tank must be drained completely before repairing.
