Metal Water Tanks by Tankworks Australia

metal-tank-slimlineMetal water tanks are an iconic Australian product- a feature of the rural landscape and, if we go back far enough, urban areas. Today, a new generation of environmentally-aware water tank buyers are looking for modern versions of the classic steel water tank. And they don’t just want the classic galvanised finish. Modern homes may be better suited to colourful tanks matched to their decor, or modern slimline tanks where space is a problem.

As always, we looked for quality suppliers. We needed one who could supply large rural and industrial tanks all around Australia, and another who could supply our customers with normal-size metal tanks in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne. Of course, we not only looked for quality. We also looked for competitive pricing and (call us old-fashioned), businesses that were likely to be around to honour the warranties they give! Quite a few suppliers failed to make the grade. Happily, two suppliers stood out- Rhino Tanks for the rural/industrial large metal tanks, and Tankworks Australia for round and slimline metal tanks for mainly domestic use.

Read on for information on Tankworks Australia metal tanks…

steel-tanks-truckEstablished in 1934 in Sydney as Parramatta Tank Works,Tankworks Australia has been continuously manufacturing corrugated steel water tanks since then.

Today Tankworks Australia has grown to be a leading name in the industry, and is your assurance of a precision engineered metal water tank backed by a long term warranty. With manufacturing plants for metal tanks in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, Tankworks Australia is proudly 100% Australian owned and operated, and we’re proud to supply them to you. But why do many customers prefer metal water tanks?

  • Strength Of Steel: Steel tanks do not bulge or stretch when full. The strength of steel means the tanks comfortably hold the large forces generated by tonnes of water. Steel tanks have been around for more than 100 years so the structural long life is a proven fact. In addition this strength will not deteriorate over time under the harsh Australian sun as with other materials.
  • Long Life: In the early days steel tanks were just plain galvanised steel and after many years could begin to rust from the inside. This is a thing of the past with modern tank steel which has a long life polymer coating. This polymer coating is on the inside of the tank walls and on both sides of the base (inside and out). The water never touches the steel and now the metal tanks carry a 20 year warranty against corrosion! The strength of steel and the longevity of polymer coating… the best of both worlds.
  • Style And Elegance: The steel water tank not only looks traditional and Australian, but it is less bulky than other alternatives. This is especially noticeable in the slimline format where polyethylene tanks typically are much larger for the same capacity due to moulded cross strengthen taking away from storage capacity. The same applies for the round metal tanks where the flatter roof structure means more water right to the top of the tank compared to the unused air gap in the domed roofed poly tanks.

If the standard tank sizes above don’t suit your needs, then why not design your own? Use our clever Sizealator to pick the depth, width, diameter, height of the tank that meets YOUR needs- not the manufacturer’s.

Use The Sizealator To Select The Dimensions & Capacity You Want

In the Sizealator, just click on the ‘Slimline’, ‘Square’ or ‘Round’ heading. Feed in the dimensions that suit until you have a tank with capacity and dimensions that work for you. Then choose a colour. Then we’ll get an email listing your requirements, and either call or email you, depending on the information you provide. Or, keep the spcs on your screen, and give us a call. We’ll confirm a price and delivery time for you.
