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

Rainwater harvesting – looking after you and the environment

Rainwater has a multitude of uses around your property. From garden irrigation to replacing mains water for your entire house, rainwater that you might normally lose as run-off can be efficiently collected and re-purposed no matter what your requirements.

With Aquamate’s Rainsaver gutter system you can capture rainfall from the roof of your tank along with your house or shed.

With rainfall intermittent throughout most of Australia, it makes sense to collect as much water as possible when it does rain – water you’d normally be paying for. Aquamate’s steel rainwater tanks can be fitted with our proprietary Rainsaver gutter system that collects water from the roof of your tank and redirects it into the tank for later use. The extra rainwater from the roof of your tank, in addition to the area of your home or shed, can make a significant increase to the total rainwater collected.

The water stored in your steel rainwater tank has many uses including; farm and garden irrigation, household water use and static water storage for bushfire protection.

Aquamate steel rainwater tanks can be integrated with other pump, pipeline and plumbing systems, from bathroom and laundries to taps and drinking water, from lawn sprinklers to pivot irrigators.
