When it comes to commercial and industrial settings, concrete water tanks enjoy certain advantages over poly tanks – namely added durability and high fire resistance. Concrete tanks – particularly underground concrete water tanks – are also good at keeping water cool. ACT Concrete Water Tanks has provided many commercial and industrial operations in Sydney, regional NSW and the ACT with the right concrete water storage solution.
Some of the sectors we’re worked with over the past 40 years include:-
- Accommodation and Hospitality
- Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
- Real Estate and Strata Management
- Healthcare and Aged Care
- Education and Training
- Local Government
- Cleaning and Recycling Facilities
- Irrigation of lawns, gardens, plant nurseries and greenhouses.
- Showering / bathing, clothes washing and toilet flushing – particularly in motels and hotels.
- Topping up of guest swimming pools.
- Washing vehicles and outdoor equipment.
- Drinking and cooking (also requires water filtering and purification equipment).
- Water for firefighting purposes.
ACT Concrete Water Tanks will help you choose the right above-ground or underground concrete water tank. We’ll assess what you’re planning to use the rainwater for – taking into account rainfall patterns, the size of your catchment area and spatial restrictions.
- 10,000 litres – pre-cast concrete tank (transported to site and for underground use only) – requires an area of 3.5 metres in diameter.
- 20,000 litres – poured on site (ready mix concrete) – requires an area of 5.5 metres in diameter.
- 90,000 litres – poured on site (ready mix concrete) – requires an area of 10 metres in diameter.
- 120,000 litres – poured on site (ready mix concrete) – requires an area of 11 metres in diameter.
A 100mm PVC overflow is standard on all our tanks – enabling them to function as stormwater retention tanks and OSD tanks (provided the necessary plumbing and drainage has been put in place). A feature of our “poured” tanks (20,000 litres, 90,000 litres, 120,000 litres) is that they have no floor-wall joins – making leakage less likely.
