Today we are featuring a short video from the Institute for Sustainable Futures and the Dusseldorp Skills Forum about the different tank types available, installation considerations, sizing, mosquito protection and overflows.

There is a huge range of choices available when choosing your water tanks, and some water tanks suit some areas and requirements better than others.  If you are short on space, the handy slimline tanks can fit in small spaces, or you may want to install a bladder tank or underground tank.  If you have room, poly tanks are a cost effective way to go, and if you need large amounts of water storage, built on site steel water tanks may be the answer.

The following video gives a quick run down on the varying types of tanks you can choose from, and other handy hints.
