The Choice Rainwater Harvesting tank for a Lower Life Cycle Cost

Whether you are harvesting rain water or collecting it for part of a reuse system in a commercial or industrial setting, the Australian Tanks range of anti-floatation and trafficable tanks offer ease and simplicity for underground solutions.

If space is a challenge or you regard tanks as unsightly or obtrusive, then there is no easier way than to bury tanks out of sight.

All Australian Tanks are built to strict Australian Design Standards and are cost effective; supplied with committed customer focus and fully backed solutions.

Australian Tanks can supply tanks from as small as 2300 litres up to many hundreds of thousand litre solutions; with or without filtration and pumping requirements.

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.

Modular On Site Storage Solutions

The Australian Tanks heavy duty trafficable detention systems consist of 5,000L, 10,000L, 15,000L, 20,000L and 25,000L round tanks, or 7,000L and 12,000L rectangular tanks which are easily interconnected in multiples to create any volume quickly and very cost effectively. Every system is certifiable, with increasing numbers of engineers incorporating our system into their design.

Every Australian Tanks system can be engineer certified, and the systems can arrive as holding tanks, or with weir walls, filtration, penetrations, trash screens, ladders, risers, manholes, drainage holes and orifice plates in place and can be installed and connected ready for backfill within the same day.

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

Tank Design and Ratings

The full range of Australian Tanks systems are a ‘single pour’ precast concrete tank, constructed with a built-in anti-floatation base where no additional ballast is required for installation in high water table areas.
The unique anti-floatation design provides on-site efficiencies and financial savings from potentially not having to manage water trucks on-site to add ballast in the tanks (May still be required prior to backfilling depending on the water height), and not requiring project management of concrete trucks to pour and tie in a ballast footing.

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 that have been driven over and damaged.
Many times these tanks 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 Australian Tanks provide tanks that are manufactured to Australian Standards (AS5100.2) and are rated up to ‘unrestricted heavy vehicle access’ based on the SM1600 traffic design loads;

  • Heavy Duty Tank: Rated for where the heaviest vehicle traffic will be a 4 axle twin steer truck (Max GVM 27.5t).  Example:  Garbage Truck.

  • Extra Heavy Duty Tank:  Rated up to unrestricted heavy vehicle access based on the SM1600 traffic design loads in accordance with AS5100.2 Bridge Design Code.  Example:  Fire Engine

The professional manner in which Australian Tanks approached this project resulted with the successful installation of several large capacity grease interceptor traps that are fully compliant with the City of Gold Coast Trade Waste Department requirements. Congratulations to Les Green and Team for the professionalism, and a quality product.
Aaron Glowka
Project Manager
The service from the team is outstanding, they’re always available to help. They’ll do whatever they can including come out and work you to get it right. The different volume tanks are brilliant! Standard sizing that you can adjust the volume makes it uniform when working across different jobs. Consistency in area for planning also helps to save time and money in the long run!
