Site Preparation

Construction of the water tank base is critical. The base must
be flat, level and fully supporting the bottom and the rim of the tank
and at least 100 mm greater than the base of the tank.

Damage to water tanks caused by poor base construction may not be covered under warranty.

Concrete slab

  • A concrete base is preferred and should be 100mm thick
  • Concrete blend should at least 20 MPA with F72 reinforcing mesh
  • Tanks positioned on sloping ground may need extra reinforcing (we recommend seeking further advise from a qualified concretor)

Crusher dust

  • Crusher dust can be appropriate for larger diameter round tanks
  • Base should be at least 100 mm thick
  • It should be retained with a border to prevent erosion (the edge of the tank should sit well inside the edge of the border in case of subsidence)
  • It is recommended that gravel/course aggregate should be spread over
    the exposed crusher dust after the tank is positioned to prevent erosion

Concrete pavers

  • Concrete pavers should be placed on a bed of crusher dust or a
    sand & cement mix over 75 mm thick
  • Unless compacted properly, the base will settle.
  • It is advisable to fill the tank to only a depth of 100mm for at least 48 hours

Will You Need a Crane?

Any tank under 25,000 Litres in capacity can be managed without the use of a crane assuming access is unobstructed. However, we do request at least one other person on site to give us a hand in many circumstances, sometimes two.

Should a crane be required it is the responsibility of the customer to arrange.  Select Water Tanks can then co-ordinate the timing of the delivery with the crane operator.   Select Water Tanks can supply the lifting gear but we request the crane operator supplies the spreader bar.

Delivered to the Pad

Select Water Tanks will make sure your new water tank is delivered and positioned directly on the pad.  Our tanks, while strong and durable, do require some careful handling to make sure they arrive in perfect condition.  Of course we ask that the access to the pad is unobstructed so we can operate efficiently and safely.

Delivery Zones

Below are our Delivery zones to provide you with an estimate on your delivery costs. Please note these are an estimate and your final price will be quoted along with your tank.

I purchased an 5000L aquaplate tank and pump kit. The advice and follow from Linda and the team was great in helping me determine the best tank and then the delivery team were really helpful as the access wasn't ideal. However everything worked really well and the communication and follow up through the process was much better than some others i tried.

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.

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. I was contacted the day before delivery and then on the delivery day with a rough time and when they arrived I was greeted by two happy strong men who were more than accommodating in helping to situate my new tank through a tricky low carport and onto the tank pad. They even put a geotextile sheet over the gravel I had in the tank pad in case the iron in the rocks reacted with the metal tank. The tank is beautiful and adds to the aesthetic appeal of my kitchen garden. Would definitely recommend to others!
