With the classic galvanised or coloured corrugated finish on the round or slimline tanks they are well suited to a range of properties from the modern, contemporary, colonial, beachside, or rustic styles.

Being manufactured from steel, the tanks can be made to meet council requirements for firefighting purposes, be incorporated into a whole of house rainwater harvesting system, or to have as your very own water supply in times of need. Your own harvested water supply is so beneficial if you love to garden, keep your car sparkling or just lower your council water bills. In times of water restrictions, you will still have your own water supply to use for your property, and by lowering the demand on the council or town supply water, you can save some money too.

"I recently ordered a 7500 litre stainless steel round tank from Select Water Tanks and couldn't be happier with it. The process from order to delivery was perfect and I was kept in the loop with manufacture times and a set delivery date. Communication was great through the process and I had to change the delivery date to suit me and there was no issue with this.."

"We have just bought 3 tanks and have now installed them. We found Select Tanks very easy to work with right through to delivery. We had to change the delivery date on a number of occasions and it was never a problem. We are very happy with the quality of the tanks which look great."

Colorbond Water Tanks FAQs

Why Aquaplate / Colorbond?

Aquaplate/Colorbond tanks are slightly less expensive than ones made from stainless steel and they come in a range of colours to match or compliment existing structures or colour schemes. These tanks come with a 20-year warranty for corrosion and a 10 year manufacturers warranty. Research has shown, that they keep their structural integrity during a bush fire.

Are rainwater tanks worth it?

Rain can be harvested from your roof for example, instead of flowing away from your property, via a pipe from the gutters for example into the top of the tank via an inlet strainer. If you approximate the cost of the tank as say $2500 and it is serviceable for over 30 years, then the cost is well less than $2.00 per week to provide water to your household, your stock, your crops or your lawn and/or garden.

Do you connect the tanks up?

No. We suggest you get a local plumber to connect them up. That way you have a local expert to make them compliant to local conditions.

What other fittings are available?

There are a wide range of additional fittings we can provide. One example is we can install a bucket height tap on the side of your tank.

Are the tanks resistant to bush fires?

Yes. University research shows that both Stainless steel and Aquaplate/Colorbond tanks maintain their structural integrity during bushfires.

How do I work out the size of tank I need?

Normally we recommend that you get the largest size tank you can to suit your site. Round tanks can be made to much larger sizes whereas slimline tanks can be made specifically to fit neatly into a confined space.

Deciding a size can be influenced by a number of factors. These include:

  • The number of people living in a house if it is for domestic use
  • The catchment area of the roof
  • The annual rainfall

For more information visit our “Custom Shapes & Sizes Section”

Do the tanks meet Council Overlay requirements?

Yes we can build the tanks to meet specific Council Overlay requirements.

What fittings come with the tank?

Three fittings come with your tank. You will be asked where on each tank you want them.

They are:

  • A 400mm inlet strainer with light guard which allows the water from your roof for example, into the tank, with protection from the sunlight and mosquitoes.
  • An overflow attachment which is a round plastic outlet which can be either 90 or 100mm in diameter and which come with mosquito proofing.
  • A 25mm outlet with a ball valve located at the bottom of your tank.
Can the tanks be made to be fire-fighting compliant?

Yes we can fit the tanks with the required fittings to make them firefighting compliant,  with a Storz fitting for NSW or the Camlock for Qld.

One particularly efficient tank we can build is where the normal outlet system is built a certain distance up the side of the tank so that you always have 10,000 litres in the bottom section of the tank in case of fires, while still using the water in the top of the tank for normal use.
