The water tank in Australia has long been an obvious necessity in rural areas. The need has not been so obvious in urban Australia until recently. Now, a combination of record populations, high water usage, and the worst drought in generations has seen authorities change from opposing urban water tanks in Australia. Now they are encouraged, often with government rebates. In other cases, they are being mandated by government, and most jurisdictions require a water tank to be fitted to a new home.
Not only is government regulation of water tanks in Australia moving towards a water tank on most new homes, but a rapidly increasing number of existing home owners are installing water storage tanks for their homes.
The choice is amazing. Concrete water tanks aren’t often used in urban areas. Metal water tanks are very popular in both urban and rural Australia. We supply Tankworks Australia Colorbond® tanks, as well as Rhino large steel water tanks for rural, industrial and commercial use. Bladder tanks are great for under-deck or under-house use.
The most popular water tanks in Australia with urban customers are the modern poly tanks, also known as plastic, PE or polyethylene tanks. These long-life tanks come in a variety of shapes, a wide range of colours, and a bewildering assortment of brand names. There are more brands of water tanks than you can poke a stick at- Nylex Plastank, Bushman, Clark Tanks, Team Poly, Duraplas, Precison Poly, Poly Water Tanks, the former ARI Plastank and a host of others around the country. The proliferation of brands is a product of the cost of trucking the tanks long distances.
On this website, we have chosen an extensive range for our customers by a stellar cast of water tank suppliers…

Not all tank manufacturers are $billion companies. Sometimes there are brilliant designs, high quality manufacture and extra geograhical spread from other manufacturers, and EFP is happy to supply water tanks from suppliers like Poly Water Tanks. With a unique range of round and slimline tanks from 700 to 5000 litres, you can purchase Poly Water Tanks in the Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Adelaide Regions.
As the business of water tanks in Australia has moved from just rural, to strongly urban, a new breed of water tank has emerged for space-challenge urban cutomers- the slimline water tank.
Precision Poly saw the need for slimline tanks, and developed an innovative range of good-looking slimline tanks, from 1100 to 3000 litres.
Customers now enjoy the Precision Poly slimline style in the Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne regions.
A new breed of underground water tanks has developed, such as Tankmasta, and become common in new home construction. Featuring rugged, shallow design, they are the “best water tanks you’ll never see.”!
The Nylex DownUnda underground water tank also continues this trend.
The new breed of water tanks can not only save gardens, they can harvest rainwater and directly feed toilets, washing machines, even whole houses, using products such as the Onga WaterSwitch.
Watering gardens uses rainwater for half the year in most areas- using the water inside the house really starts saving water all year round. Most States have rebates to help you do this, and the WaterSwitch is the ideal product for the job.
