Made to measure water tanks, in any size you like. Our unique manufacturing process means we can make your water tank any size you like. Don’t be forced to take the standard size. Use our unique Size-a-Lator system to design your own tank to match your needs.
We employ industry leading assembly techniques, including Henrob self piercing riveting system and CNC controlled lock seaming. We have combined these modern systems with our proven tank building experience. There are still some guarded “tricks of the trade” which will ensure a well finished and long lasting tank is produced every time.
At Tankworks, we take pride in our workmanship and we only use the best components for our tanks. The tank inlet screen, tank overflow and tank outlets are all Australian made to ensure the highest level of quality in every tank. We supply brass ball valves with each tank, and have a light guard fitted underneath the mosquito-proof tank inlet, to reduce the chance of algae forming in your water tank.
Tankworks Australia (formerly Parramatta Tank Works) has been building tanks since 1934. Click to read more about our history.
Selecting the right Tank
Choose the largest tank that will fit into your available area.
Direct as much of your roof area as practical into your tank.
Normal garden hosing can use up to 1000 litres per hour of water.
A 5000 litre water tank will therefore provide around 5 hours of watering time. Make sure capacity of your tank will suit your water use requirements.
One square metre of roof area will provide one litre of water for every millimetre of rain.
Maximising the roof area feeding to your tank is the best way to ensure you collect as much water as possible.
Be aware that every 1000 litres of water in your tank is one tonne of mass.
Considering the location of your tank, and be sure not to place the tank in an area with unstable ground or too close to existing house footings. Refer to our data sheet.
Remember that you will need to access the leaf strainer to clean out leaves.
This may be a consideration when deciding the height and location of your tank.
