Manage your on-site water

Coated Fuel Spill Tanks, Chemical Washbay & Cooling Tanks

Easy, safe and quick to install water tanks

The Australian Tanks anti-floatation base and extra heavy duty rating makes the 10,000 or 20,000 litre tank perfect for fuel service stations and fuel depot spill tanks. Australian Tanks takes a solutions approach and can apply tanks with relevant hydrocarbon resistant specified coating.

Our tanks are easy, fast and safe to install under fuel depot driveway areas, ensuring safe install (even when empty) with our T44 Extra Heavy Duty rating. This allows for heavy trucks to safely drive over them. Australian Tanks’ Coated Fuel Spill Tanks are regularly specified in Puma, Caltex and 7-Eleven fuel stations.

The entire Australian Tanks range can be specifically coated to suit many and varied purposes including chemical spill tanks, wash bay tanks and cooling pits.

Why choose Australian Tanks?

Our solutions are designed for small, medium, or large capacities and compete extremely favourably with alternative precast or built-on-site systems. Additionally, the lifecycle costs measure extremely well against alternatives as they are very easy to access, clean and maintain.

Every Australian Tanks system is delivered with weir walls, filtration, penetrations, trash screens, ladders, risers, manholes, drainage holes and orifice plates in place, ready for immediate install in the prepared site excavation. Importantly, all systems are pre-cured with no further waterproofing required. Installation takes place in hours, not weeks, to be connected and backfilled within the same day.

We provide tanks that are made to Australian Standards to allow for restricted heavy vehicle access based:

  • Heavy duty construction rated for where the heaviest vehicle traffic will be a 4 axle twin steer truck eg. garbage truck.
  • Un-restricted traffic loading in accordance with AS5100 can be provided with further engineering for your needs.

Our range of tanks are easily interconnected in multiples to create any volume quickly and cost effectively. Every system is certifiable, with increasing numbers of engineers incorporating our systems into their designs due to the structural integrity and multiple efficiencies of our service.

Our products are easily modified to fit the volume required on your project. Along with other on-site parameters we can create the ideal custom solution for you and your team.

Australian tanks design and ratings

All Australian Tanks tanks and pump stations are anti-floatation by design. Once backfilled they can be installed in 100% saturation and will instil nil hydrostatic uplift to the slab above.
For installations where the water table can be above the height of the tank, such as a basement installation, tidal or flood prone locations, some of our tanks can have in excess 3.0m water cover and still resist the hydrostatic uplift, providing nil buoyancy. Once the tank is selected to be suitable for the water table, no estimation is required by installers for the ballasting required, and no separate project management of concrete trucks, or water trucks is required.

Due to the high compressive strength and durability requirements necessary for heavy duty construction, Australian Tanks uses 50Mpa strength concrete in all products manufactured.

Australian Tanks products are rated with a B2 classification, in accordance with Australian Standards AS3735 (Concrete Structures for retaining liquids).

Australian Tanks are regularly requested to replace tanks,pump stations and civil products that have been driven over and damaged.
Many times these products have been installed in non-trafficable areas, such as parks and school ovals, but have been inadvertently driven over, only to find the tank has been unable to bear weight with the resulting damage requiring new tank installation.
To avoid these damaging risks all Australian Tanks products are manufactured as Heavy Duty and rated for where the heaviest vehicle traffic will be a 4 axle twin steer truck (Max GVM 27.5t). Example: Garbage Truck.
