Part 3 – What type and size water tank should you choose?

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.



WaterStore provide a full range water tanks for you to choose from.  We make the ever popular polyethylene or “poly” water tank here on site.  We also sell large steel built on site water tanks, and bladder tanks suitable to go under your house or deck.  Please give us a call if you would like some free advice as to which water tank would suit your house the best.

Next week we will feature the final part in this video series, which will look at the getting the water out of your tanks and into your home.

Tips to save water in the garden

With the cost of water continually rising and hitting us all in the hip pocket, we thought we would show you some easy ways to avoid hefty water bills whilst still preserving your garden.

  • Build your soil with mulch and compost, designed to retain water and prevent evaporation
  • Choose low water usage plants -such as natives which are acustomed to our dryer climate
  • Use soaker hoses or drip irrigation systems. which save up to 50% more than sprinklers
  • Use a water tap timer
  • Water in the early morning or evening. If you water during mid-day half the water will evaporate.

If you have any great tips on saving water, please email them through to sales@waterstore.com.au  so we can share them with other loyal customers.
