This ensures a perfect water quality and a great looking tank. Aquaplate steel tanks are designed to withstand corrosion and flames and survive under Australia’s extreme UV rays.

Choosing your tank
The tank you need depends on many factors including water usage, the available catchment area, the number of users on your property and the availability of mains water. We’ve outlined three typical scenarios, assuming that the property has mains water available. Talk to us about your tank requirements and we’ll help you make the right selection.
Outside use only
Ideal for washing the car or watering the garden whenever you feel like it, you can enjoy water freedom with tanks of any size – the larger you can fit the more water freedom you will have. Every 1,000 litres will give you around 60 to 90 minutes of water.
Part house supply with mains backup
To connect your toilets, washing machine and an outside garden tap to your tank, we recommend a minimum of 2,000 to 5,000 litres. Five star regulations for new homes require 2,000 litres to be connected to toilets, with anything more a bonus.
Whole house usage
This usually requires a minimum of 50,000 litres. The tank can be connected to your whole house to provide zero reliance from mains water – perfect for the environmental conscious person who also wants to save on water bills.
