WHY A POLY TANK?
Why a poly tank?
Plastic or “poly” water tanks are made from polyethylene, which is one of the most popular water tank materials used in Australia today. The poly water tank industry has consistently grown to dominate the Australian water tank market due to being lighter and more cost effective than alternative materials.
The Australian Standard ensures the design manufacture of polyethylene water tanks is fit for purpose. The Australian Standard for polyethylene tanks requires quality in the production of water tanks. It is important to look into the polyethylene grades used by manufacturers to ensure that your tank is certified to this standard
A poly water tank is the first choice for water storage in Australia and New Zealand due to the harsh conditions they must endure. The material ensures pure drinking water with no taint
There are many benefits to installing a water tank on your property
Poly water tanks are proven to be the most cost effective way to store rainwater for domestic, industrial or commercial applications. Everyday consumers in Australia and New Zealand benefit from installing a poly water tank as they will save money in the long run due to lower water bills.
Plastic water tanks are also environmentally friendly since the material is 100% recyclable. The manufacturing process of poly water tanks does not release any dangerous chemicals into the atmosphere and creates no noxious gases or odours. Additionally, poly water tanks deliver the highest purity in drinking water with no consequences of water tainting or producing rust cracking fibres that is associated with metal tanks.
Not only can collecting and utilising rain water save you money, it can also ensure you are making the most out of the bountiful natural resources at your disposal – a critical factor in a country like Australia, where droughts and water shortages are common.
