Site, Delivery & Service Areas
Select Water Tanks will make sure your new water tank is delivered and positioned correctly on your base. We can also assist and coordinate with a crane operator if required. We use delivery zones to provide an estimate on your delivery costs.
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.
- 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 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 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.
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 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.."
"A big thank you to Jason, Linda, Loyd, Damon and the team at Select Watertanks.The whole process ran on time, in fact you were able to deliver all our tanks prior to Christmas.The boys did a great job negotiating our tricky block and setting up the tanks.We highly recommend Select Watertanks"
