Tanks for Rainwater Harvesting

The corrugated water tank is an enduring image of the Australian landscape. Aquamate realised a long time ago that using galvanised steel for its corrugated tanks was the ideal solution for durability and longevity. Using galvanised steel walls and a specially manufactured polyolefin liner enables Aquamate to offer a 20 year warranty on its water tank range.

 All of our steel water tanks are delivered to site as a flat pack and assembled within a day in most cases. From 24,000 to 276,000 litres, all of Aquamate’s water tanks are available in a plain galvanised finish or a large range of colours to match existing sheds and fences.

"This is our 3rd Aquamate tank, the first being purchased 23 years ago. We are very pleased with our recent acquisition and are impressed by the new appearance and innovative upgrades that have taken place over the years. We prefer the galvanised steel over a poly tank in a bush fire prone area and this tank sits neatly and tidily on our hillside.

Capture water from the tank’s roof​

Rainsaver Gutter System

Aquamate’s rainwater collection tanks can be fitted with our innovative “Rainsaver” gutter system, utilising the tank’s roof to increase the catchment area for optimal collection of rainwater which is then redirected into the tank. The domed roof on an Aquamate tank has dozens of channels around the perimeter of the roof that run from one side of the cistern to the other. Rainsavers are placed at the end of each channel to collect the water during rainfall events. If the tank is full, the water diverts to the overflow as it normally would.​

What are the important considerations when harvesting rainwater?

No matter what your intended use is, you’ll need a rainwater collection tank to store the rainwater you’ve collected. What you plan on doing with the water after it’s stored will influence your needs. For simple irrigation systems, all you may need is a pre-filter, first flush diverter, and a small pump. For more complex drinking water systems, you may need to consider pumps, pipework, filtration and sterilisation systems.

14 reasons to choose an Aquamate Rainwater Collection Tank


 

Rainwater Harvesting down the ages

Rainwater collection is the process of collecting rainwater through a harvesting or collection system, which can involve barrels, buckets, or other containers to hold the water, such as our large galvanised water tanks. 

Dating back to ancient Rome, the idea of collecting rainwater began when wealthier households were designed with atriums that had shallow pools built into the floor. The pools were meant to collect rainwater to help fill the city’s water supply. Since then, there have been many adaptations on how to harvest rainwater all over the world.
