3 considerations for buying round water tanks

Whether you're in the agriculture industry, working on a construction project that's looking to increase its water efficiency, or in a different industry, round water tanks are the ideal solution for capturing, storing and reusing water. However, not all round water tanks are made the same. It is important that you chose a tank which has been adapted to your specific industry and requirements, as there are significant differences in tanks designed for domestic use which make them unsuitable for industrial applications. 

It doesn't matter if you're planning on buying just one tank, or several large capacity tanks, there are some key traits to look out for when buying round water tanks.

Material and build quality

It is important that you buy a round water tank which has material designed for bearing large loads. Water, especially in the large capacity found on industrial sites, is a very powerful force, and so look for a tank which is made of a material like high grade polyethylene. This ensures that the tank will be structurally sound, and keep it's shape over time. Products should also be appropriately certified and quality marked, so that you can be confident that it has been thoroughly tested and quality checked before you put it onto your site. Only round water tanks which meet these standards will be eligible for rebate schemes, so investing in the right product is the sensible long term option.

Suitable capacity

Depending on which part of the country you are in, and the type of water you're gathering, there will be significant differences in the capacity you need. It may be more cost effective to purchase on large 40,000L tank, but the downside to this is that you may end up being able to collect less water. Additionally, just one tank makes it harder to reach logistically - very important on large farming sites. Conversely, you might want to opt for several smaller capacity tanks. While this may cost more in the long run you will be able to strategically place them around your site. However, you should keep in mind that this smaller capacity means that you're possibly limiting yourself in the future, should your storage needs change over time.

Transport and maintenance

Round water tanks are neither light or small. Make sure the company you're buying from is adequately equipped to deliver your tank to your site. As these tanks are high-value goods, you shouldn't try and move them yourself, leave it to the professionals.
