Rain Water Storage Tanks for Really Tight Spots

The owners of this inner city home wanted to install as big a rainwater tank as possible to reticulate rainwater into their home and to irrigate their garden. The problem was that they did not have much space and they did not want to give up any of their garden to a rain water tank.

Waterplex sent an experienced installer to find a solution for rainwater storage around their home. The only available area (other than the back lawn) was a narrow passage down the side of the house barely 800mm wide and around 9m long. 

The AquaClad® flat pack steel modular slimline water tank was the perfect solution both for the space and for the difficult access constraints. An AquaClad® steel slimline tank measuring 755mm wide and 7200mm long provided over 8,000 litres of rainwater storage in a single water tank. The advantages over other poly and steel water tank options were:

  • it could be built as a single water tank (due its modular design) so no space was lost in joining multiple rainwater tanks together
  • the tank could be walked into the location in its component parts
  • the modular steel water tanks are available with so many sizes - so it was built to optimise the use of the available area and to maximise the rain water storage
  • the external steel frame provided the required structural strength while providing straight lines. All the fasteners are hidden inside the water tank frame.

And it looks great! You would not even kow it was modular and carried into place in pieces. Watch the time lapse photos showing the building and installation of the tank that took less than a day from start to finish. The home owner now enjoys more than 8,000 litres of rainwater storage without having to see the water tank and without losing valuable garden area.
