How to choose the right water tank for your needs
Choosing the right water tank for your property will depend on your unique needs and requirements, as well as your individual preferences.
There are a number of important considerations that need to be taken into account before choosing a water tank, including size, shape and materials. With that in mind, here is a basic guide to choosing the right water tank for your needs.
Finding the right design
Water tanks will typically come in one of the five following designs: slimline, round, corrugated, underground, and under deck. Obviously some of these designs are better suited to certain purposes than others, and this should be factored into your decision.
For example, if you are a domestic consumer looking to conceal your water tank for aesthetic purposes, than an underground or under deck tank might be the right choice. Conversely, if you are purchasing a water tank for a rural property, or for agricultural purposes, than a round design may be a more efficient option.
Choosing the right size
Water tanks come in a huge variety of sizes, to suit any property or purpose. You can purchase anything from a simple 200 litre water tank to serve your household, to massive 46,000 litre water tanks that are ideal for farms and isolated areas.
In choosing the size of your water tank, you'll need to think about the space you have available, as well as the average rainfall in your region. After all, there is no reason to purchase a significantly large water tank if you do not have the space to install it or the rainfall to fill it.
Selecting the right material
Finally, you'll need to decide what material you want your water tank to be constructed from. There are a few options here, but none that surpass polyethylene for reliability, durability and long-term performance.
Alkatuff offers an Australian made polyethylene, specifically designed for use in the construction of rainwater tanks in Australia. If you're looking for a water tank that is built tough and built to last, make sure made it is made from Alkatuff polyethylene.
