What else can you use a tank for?

Australians are a very inventive and innovative people.  Throughout the drought, tanks were valued and used to save every precious drop of water.  Now days, we have so much water (think the recent floods!) that all tanks are full to bursting with water, and people have relaxed.old slimline tanks used for planter boxes

One of the disadvantages of having a long dry spell is that when you finally do get water, sometimes that old tank that has been sitting dry for a number of years can spring a leak. 

So what do you do with a tank that is no longer useful to use as a tank?  First, you ring WaterStore to get yourself a brand new tank!  Next, you find a new purpose for your old tank.

Peter, our travelling sales rep, spotted a great use of a slimline tank that obviously was past its useby date and snapped a picture for us.  (just to clarify, no this is not a WaterStore tank!)

Another very innovative use for small galvanised tanks seems to be as very funky coffee tables, as seen by this photo of a coffee table made by Guy Trench, founder of Antiques By Design in the UK.

Have you seen any innovative uses for old water tanks recently?
