Steel rainwater tanks are great options to store collected rainwater in larger properties such as farms and homesteads. As water supplies may be scant in rural areas, steel tanks provide an inexpensive, long-lasting, recyclable vessel for collecting a renewable water resource in rainwater. Though standard rainwater collection systems are connected to the rainwater tanks with a simple conveyance system (roof to gutter to pipework, etc.), other made-to-order tanks of the same capacity can be constructed without covers (except for simple screens) to collect and store rainwater directly as a greywater source.
There are many uses for steel water tanks in rural areas, including rainwater harvesting, well water storage, fire protection, stock watering, and irrigation. They come in all capacities and shapes, from round to oblong, and can be lined with different materials, depending on the use for the tank. Some suppliers provide a wide assortment of sizes and shapes, while others specialize in certain shapes and build tanks to order.
Livestock watering and irrigation
Steel tanks available from home improvement stores and agricultural suppliers tend to be tanks made of galvanized steel suitable for livestock watering and irrigation. Some of these tanks are built about 60 cm high to allow cattle to be able to drink easily. An open-top steel rainwater tank may be made to water plants for smaller gardens with simple materials such as a bulkhead fitting and manifold, a faucet, and a hose. One common size for larger tanks is about 60 cm high by 60 cm wide by 182 cm long. For smaller properties, this will hold about 700 litres of water.
Large water storage
In bushfire-prone areas, farms and homesteads may want a large storage tank to protect barns, homes, and other buildings from the ravages of fire. These large tanks are made of corrugated galvanized steel and are typically round and unlined (by epoxy or similar coating), which can be used for irrigation, firefighting, rainwater harvesting, well water storage, etc. Steel rainwater tanks are known for their durability, and many suppliers offer 10- or 20-year warranties to cover for maintenance and repair work for these tanks.
The galvanized coating on the steel will not crack in below-freezing conditions and resists deterioration from harmful UV rays. Some of these steel tanks do not have a top so rainwater may be collected directly with mesh screens covering them to protect the water from leaves and other debris. These tanks can be purchased from a number of different suppliers, including made-to-order tanks, and tanks that can hold up to 300,000 litres of water for high-volume water usage.
Tanks made of stainless steel are typically intended to store drinking water. They have roofs and bottoms so they can be placed on a bed of crushed rock or concrete. Some suppliers like Rainwater Tanks Direct in Australia also offer this kind of tank and has filtration and purification systems to be integrated with the tank. Rainwater Tanks Direct also offers a stainless steel tank in various sizes, and their line is approved to store potable water.
A large number of companies around the world provide steel rainwater tanks designed to serve customers in rural areas. The internet has a huge listing of such suppliers in the rainwater tanks business. They will help you select one to suit your needs. Though many suppliers have representations of the tanks on the internet, most invite you to call them for a price on an individual tank.

There are a few considerations to keep in mind when choosing the ideal water tank for your factory:
Your Surrounding Climate
The first consideration when choosing the perfect water storage tanks for your factory is to take a look at the climate your factory finds itself in.
For example, cyclonic water tanks are more suited to areas where heavy winds blow a lot of the time. These tanks are secured with heavier hold-down brackets, and its side panels and roof sheets are substantially thicker than the average water storage tank.
If heavy weather conditions are not an issue at your factory, but you get the odd bout of rains now and then, a GRP water tank would do just fine. These industrial water tanks are comprised of GRP panels that are insulated – rendering them highly resistant to corrosion.
Your Available Space
The next consideration when looking into a water tank for a factory is your available space. Industrial plants come in many shapes and sizes, and you’d ideally want a factory water tank that fits seamlessly into your existing infrastructure.
By choosing a water tank supplier that understands your unique industry needs and necessities, you can ensure that your factory’s water conservation solution is perfectly matched to your industrial water requirements – regardless of how much space you have for it.
How Much You Can Spend
This is something most people will want to find out off the bat – exactly what their factory water tank will cost them. Contrary to popular belief, there actually are options when it comes to finding the right water conservation solution.
Most large water tank suppliers worth their salt should offer you both standard water tanks and budget-friendly water tanks for your factory. Keep in mind that a factory water tank is a long-term investment, so if you can – choose a water storage tank that will cater to your needs as your business grows.
What’s in Store for the Future
As the above point mentions, a final consideration when choosing a water tank for your factory is where you see your business years from now. The last thing you want is to opt for a smaller water tank (in terms of water capacity), only to grow your operation to the point where the small water tank no longer caters for your needs.
Choosing the ideal factory water tank isn’t easy – but it can be!

Concrete water storage tanks may have a tendency to leak and, if they’re installed underground, it can prove near impossible to detect and repair the leak. Leaks and cracks are often caused by a settling of the earth around the tank, or earth movements, like tremors or earthquakes. That’s why a steel panel water storage tank provides you with an improved solution, as they’re easier to maintain and repair, especially when they’re installed above ground. The Tanks range is designed to withstand settling and earth tremors, and forceful movement that takes place in and around the location of the tank.
Made to move
Relocating a water storage tank can become necessary, when your business needs to move premises, or reconfigure its layout to accommodate new developments or an expansion of your offices. Moving a typical water storage tank can prove difficult. That’s why the range of water storage tanks are manufactured using panels, that can be easily uninstalled, and transported to where they need to go. The customisable design of each Tank makes it simple to move your water storage tank when you need to.
Repurposing your water storage tank
Water storage tanks don’t need to be single purpose solutions, although many conventional types must be, in order to retain the integrity and cleanliness of stored water and liquids. Water Tanks, however, make use of a variety of purpose-built PVC liners. These liners are installed with your liquid storage tank, and ensure that contamination does not take place within your tank. Moreover, if you need to repurpose your water storage tank, it’s simple enough to do – your installation team will be equipped to replace the liner for you, and ensure your water storage tank is fit for its new purpose.
Withstanding weather conditions
Difficult weather conditions can prove treacherous for businesses, but operating in regions where they’re part of the environment is often essential. Your business needs water storage tanks that are built to withstand difficult weather conditions, and the Tanks Cyclonic range is perfect for these circumstances. The Cyclonic range is manufactured to withstand wind speeds of up to 67 metres per second, and make use of heavier hold down brackets, keeping your tank stable and firmly affixed to the ground.
Top quality requirements
Making the right choice when it comes to your water storage tank gets a little easier when you consider the quality requirements your business adheres to. Moreover, top-notch manufacturing standards are a must. All the components that make up every Tank are manufactured in a controlled environment, within the Tanks factory,

You’ve probably set a time limit on how long the kids can run their bath, and everyone’s turning off the taps while brushing their teeth. But, as our team has found out, there are some unusual ways you can save even more water too. Check out our list of ways you can save water at home, that you may not have thought of just yet.
Washing the Dishes
You’ve enjoyed an epic dinner with family and friends, and now the pile of dishes is staring you down like a scary monster you’d prefer to ignore. That monster isn’t just a chore though – it can be an exercise in saving water too. Rather than filling your sink with water and then piling the dishes in one by one, pick the biggest pot or bowl you need to clean and fill that with soapy water. Thereafter, put smaller dishes into the same pot/bowl and use that water to clean the smaller dishes. You’ll end up using less water, and still getting the same number of dishes sparkling clean.
Pick your Glass for the Day
We all do it: head to the kitchen for a glass of water, enjoy a little refreshing drink and then later, we do it again. By the end of the day, you’ve accumulated numerous glasses that all need to be washed which, in turn, uses more water. Rather, pick your glass for the day and keep refilling it. Instead of five glasses to wash, you’ll just have one for the day. Every little bit of water saving adds up!
Lighten the Laundry Load
News just in: you don’t need to always wash an item of clothing, after every single wear. In fact, clothing items like denim jeans, jerseys, and jackets, can be worn multiple times before washing.
Let the Kids Skip Bath Time
If your children are keen to skip the suds for a night or two, it’s okay! Let them cool off in the pool with an afternoon swim, or get them into the tub once every two nights. Alternatively, if you’re a stickler for bath time routine, bath everyone together – it’s double the fun, and half the water.

Be assured of your water quality with Tanks
Ensuring water security at your business, school, or within your community isn’t just a matter of storage and distribution: it’s a matter of water quality too.
The process of ensuring excellent water quality begins by understanding the importance of ensuring it. The term ‘water quality’ refers to the chemical, physical, and biological qualities of the water you’re looking to conserve or use. Ensuring excellent water quality is fundamentally important, as dirty water, or contaminated water, can cause illnesses amongst humans and animals, contaminate the ground, or lead to further health implications for both the planet and its inhabitants.
Water quality monitoring
Regular water quality monitoring is essential and, most often, water quality is monitored by municipalities, accredited professional water associations, or private water suppliers. Water quality monitoring can be conducted at source, or throughout the distribution systems that support towns, municipalities, and communities. But, when it comes to your water storage tank, you may wonder how to be sure of your stored water quality.
Wondering about your water quality is not a task you need to concern yourself with, when installing an GRP Water Tank. Manufactured in accordance with the strictest quality standards, GRP Water Tanks is ISO 9001:2015 accredited. Moreover, GRP Water Tanks are custom-designed and manufactured, meaning that each water storage tank is designed to meet the unique needs and requirements of each client or water storage site.
From design to installation, and through their lifetime, Tanks are built with ensuring water quality in mind. Each Tank is installed using a customised, purpose-built liner, that is installed inside each tank. These liners actively prevent water contamination and leakages, ensuring that water quality remains excellent within the water storage tank.
Ensuring water quality
As each Tank is constructed using panels, they are not as subject to perishing or degradation, when compared with plastic water tanks. The customised combination of Zincalume panel design, purpose-built liners, and excellent design, make every Tank a great example for ensuring water quality.
If you’re looking for a water storage solution that ensures excellent water quality, contact GRP Water Tank team, and we’ll help you choose the right solution for your water storage needs.
Perhaps the prime reason for using glass-reinforced plastics (GRP) is because of their inherent corrosion resistance. In many cases, they are the only materials that will handle a given service environment; and in other cases, their corrosion resistance is combined with their economy to make them the most economical acceptable solution. Corrosion resistance of FRP is a function of both the resin content and the specific resin used in the laminate. Generally speaking, the higher the resin content, the more corrosion resistant the laminate.
Another very distinct advantage of GRP Water Tank is its low weight-to-strength ratio. As a rule of thumb, for the same strength, FRP will weigh approximately one seventh as much as steel, and half as much as aluminum.
Lightweight properties are important when considering the cost and ease of installation, especially for pipe and tanks. FRP’s inherent lightweight is an advantage when equipment must be mounted on existing structures, such as scrubbers on mezzanines or rooftops, and for specialty applications such as FRP tank trailers.
While not as important for corrosion-resistant equipment, high strength does play a major role in the design of FRP equipment for such applications as missiles, pultruded shapes, etc. For filament wound pipe and duct, the high strength gives the lightweight features discussed earlier.
Often, a major advantage of GRP is its lower cost. When comparing materials for corrosion service, rubber lining, titanium, Monel, Hastelloy, Carpenter 20, and the exotic stainless materials are very frequently alternatives to FRP. In these cases, FRP may offer both a satisfactory solution to corrosion problems and the lowest cost. There is no rule of thumb for comparing costs of FRP with other materials. These costs depend upon the application, the design considerations, the pressures (or vacuums) involved, the product configurations, and raw material cost and availability.
Too many people overlook the versatility of GRP. It is best for many applications because you can do things with it that cannot be done economically with other materials. You can mold almost any configuration, or piece of equipment, for which you can build a temporary or permanent mold. For ductwork, for example, you can make all types of elbows, rectangular to circular transitions, Tee inlets, and flanges all in a wide proliferation of round and rectangular sizes and shapes at minimal tooling cost. It is also possible to use FRP to line existing structures

1. Water going through the tanks may be used by immunocompromised individuals
Healthcare facility professionals are used to the heightened care given to individuals that have a compromised immune system and are more susceptible to diseases spread by bacteria. However, it may not always be so obvious when a person is immunocompromised. Just being above a certain age increases the likelihood of disease when exposed to bacteria, as does smoking, pregnancy, and lack of sleep or proper nutrition.
2. Conditions in the storage tank make it ideal for bacterial growth
Sediment is often found at the bottom of water tank, which reacts with the chlorine needed to kill bacteria. Sediment also supplies food needed for bacteria to grow. Usually, high enough temperatures will kill bacteria in storage tanks. However, sediment can act as a protective layer from these high temperatures. Storage tanks typically go through periods of stagnation which lead to amplification of bacteria.
3. Recommended by experts
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists hot and cold water storage tanks as an area where Legionella bacteria can grow. Furthermore, CDC states that physical cleaning of water tanks is one of the ways you can effectively help prevent bacteria from contaminating your water system.

Prevent bacteria growth in your Cold Water Tanks
Cold water tank cleaning and disinfection is among the variety of services aimed at eliminating the risk of legionella and a number of other bacteria growth in your property’s water systems. As legionella bacteria is prone to growing in stagnant water, it makes your cold water storage tanks one of the more likely places where harmful bacteria may appear. Water also can quickly become contaminated by a range of bacteria if cold water storage tanks are maintained poorly or irregularly. According to Legionnaires' Disease Technical Guidance HSG274 provided by Health & Safety Executive (HSE), cold water storage tanks require annual inspections, which would reveal if cleaning, disinfection, repair or even replacement is necessary.
As a result, keeping your cold water tank clean and properly maintained will remove the favourable conditions in which the bacteria can grow, including biofilm, sediment, corrosion or scale. It will also eliminate the risks of the rest of the water system getting infected due to a poorly maintained water tank.
How can Comfort Services Group help?
Comfort Services Group will inspect your cold water tanks and carry out remedial works where necessary and to the highest industry standards. As the cold water tank cleaning and disinfection process include isolating, inspecting, draining, cleaning, and refilling the tank, our fully-trained and highly experienced engineer team will make sure there is minimal disruption to our clients while the necessary works are carried out.

Whether you're using rainwater for drinking or just basic needs such as toilets, you need to keep it clean and ready to use when you need it. Below are a few points to help you be sure you are getting the best water storage tank solution for your rain collection system.
Here are the top features to look for in a rain collection and water storage tank. If these features become part of your rain collection system you will be all set to store clean water and keep it that way.
There are a couple of important questions you should ask yourself when purchasing a water storage tank for rainwater harvesting. These questions will help you make the right decision without regrets. Let's face it. Purchasing a water tank is a big investment so it's only worth doing it right the first time. Before I answer these questions, I want to tell you about all the styles of water tanks there are available for harvesting rainwater.
What types of Rainwater Harvesting Tanks are available?
Does the material of your Water Tank make a difference?
This is a common question for a reason. If you are using your water storage tank for any purpose where the water needs to stay pure yes, the material makes a huge difference. Here's an example. If you are using the water to give your pets a drink or even using it to drink yourself, you must worry about the material of your tank.
Concrete and metal water storage tanks are particularly dangerous as they can rust and corrode over time. This means that the rust or parts of the tank will leak into your pure rainwater causing it to become completely undrinkable.
After researching all the types of tanks you can purchase for rain harvesting, you must make a decision. If you are looking for a cost effective, good looking and strong water tank that won't grow algae, you are in the right place. Plastic tanks are a first choice for a reason.
