Will I find a water tank that suits my property?
Kingspan Urban Water Tanks are all made to measure to ensure anyone can find the tank they need. Our water tanks are available in hundreds of sizes, with 4 silhouettes to choose from (slimline, modline, square and round). You can use our 3D Water Tank Builder to customise a tank to suit your property.
How do I know if a slimline water tank is right for me?
Our slimline water tanks are recommended for small narrow spaces, designed to fit alongside dwellings with an aesthetical modern design to blend with the architectural features of your property.
How do I know if a modline water tank is right for me?
Our modline water tanks are recommended for those who want to maximise water storage in a tight space – saving on the width or length of a tank. The tanks have an aesthetical modern design to blend with the architectural features of your property.
How do I know if a round water tank is right for me?
Our round water tanks remain a popular, traditional choice due to the iconic round design and are the best way to maximise your water storage, with space permitting.
How do I know if a square water tank is right for me?
Our square water tanks are recommended for those who want to maximise water storage in a tight space – saving on the width or length of a tank. The tanks have an aesthetical modern design to blend with the architectural features of your property.
What is the lifespan of an urban Kingspan Water Tank?
All Kingspan Water Tanks are built using AQUAPLATE® steel to withstand the Australian climate. Kingspan tanks are covered by an industry leading 20-year Corrosion Warranty & 10-year Construction Warranty.
Where is the best location to place my water tank?
This is governed by several factors:
– Slope of the site
The most suitable site will be on level ground, away from retaining walls. Extra installation expense may be incurred if your site needs to be excavated to make a level foundation.
– Downpipe location
You should aim to connect as many downpipes to feed your tank as is practical. The closer the water tank is to your downpipes, the more efficient the water harvesting system will be. If downpipes need to be diverted and run horizontally over long distances then the installation expense will increase, and the efficiency of the system may be compromised.
While a well-positioned water tank can add a design element to your home, most people are not likely to install a water tank where it is highly visible. This is an important consideration.
– Proximity to laundry or toilets
– Where a water tank is used to feed a toilet or washing machine, a licensed plumber must install it. Again, the shorter the run of pipe work from the tank site to the internal appliance, the less expense will be incurred in installation.
Can I drink the water from the water tank?
Kingspan Water Tanks are an Australian approved storage system for drinkable water and are made using food grade polymer preventing any water to metal contact (AS4020:2018).
Kingspan Water tanks are made from a food-grade AS4020 certified material, so they can be used for storage of potable water. There are filtration devices available that can help to safeguard your tank water is safer for drinking. Please contact us if you have more specific questions about water filtration.
Odour or Taste
Care should be taken to ensure that contaminants are not introduced into the water tank. If any odour or taste is noticed, the catchment area should be checked for contaminants such as lichen or deceased animals as these are known to affect water quality. New tanks should be flushed out if slight odour or taste is present.
Do I need to do any preparation work before my water tank arrives?
Before your water tank arrives you will need to have a tank base prepared. Tanks should not be placed directly onto the ground and must be installed on a firm, stable platform with no overhang of the tank over the edge of the base. They can be placed onto a concrete pad or an engineered timber platform. For further information refer to Kingspan Tank Base Preparation Guide.
Is it okay to use the first fill of water from our new water tank?
The first fill of water in tanks should be discarded prior to use.
