Choosing the Right Material for your Australian Water Tank

By EugeneYeng Subscribe to RSS | December 12th 2011 | Views:

Due largely in part to recent legislation, Australian rain water tanks have become incredibly popular as residents look to maintain their normal water usage practices while adhering to the limitations now being implemented. We have seen the industry roll out everything from the once standard steel tanks to polymer tanks that can be colored to match the surrounding structures. The various styles are a welcome change for those that are looking to use a rainwater cache, and because of the options at your disposal, the chances that you find the perfect match for your needs is higher than ever. The changes that the industry has witnessed have led to increased interest in Australian water tanks, and the trends that have ensued are proving quite useful to users across the continent.

Several Shapes and Sizes

Once relegated to a very small option pool, those interested in water tanks now have a wide variety of shapes to choose from. In many ways, the shapes that are currently available are made possible by the changes in the materials used to create the rainwater tanks. In the early years of water tank development, steel was the most prevalent material used. But, since consumers were interested in new designs, shapes, and materials, polymer Australian rain water tanks began to make their appearance. We have noted an industry shift from standard, circular tanks to square and rectangular tanks. This makes it much easier to find a convenient location for your tank (usually up against a building on the property), and greatly reduces corrosion or other issues that may affect the quality of the cached water supply.

Plastic Polymer Slimline Tanks

Slimline tanks are the perfect way to discretely place your Australian water tanks. By putting them against the outer wall of a structure, a user can keep the unit out of the way and in a convenient location. Additionally, the use of polymer as a construction material eliminates the need for painting, and gives the consumer the ability to select a color that matches the surrounding structures. Ultimately, the functionality of the tank remains the same as the steel alternatives, but the plastic materials provide the opportunity for aesthetic appeal and increase the longevity of the tanks themselves.

The Differences in Pricing

Finally, consumers in today’s economic climate are taking note of the pricing associated with any medium to large purchase, and because polymer or plastic Australian water tanks tend to be cheaper than their steel counterparts, much can be said regarding a lean in this direction. The reason for the price difference is simple: manufacturing costs. Molding polymer rain water tanks is far cheaper than the welding or manipulation that is required with steel, allowing the tank providers to lower operating costs and pass these savings on to consumers. While the pros and cons of each tank are well-documented, price-conscious consumers would be wise to take note of the price difference between the two materials used in the industry.

Plastic has taken the world by storm, and because of the ease of creation and its ability to withstand intense sunlight, we are seeing an upward tick in the interest in plastic rain water tanks. If you would like to maintain the aesthetic appeal of your property, you will likely enjoy the colors that are available with the polymer options, and further, will likely notice far less required maintenance. Australian water regulations are causing many to find new ways to maintain their property’s lush appearance. By installing a rain water tank, you can capture the nature rainfall and continue to carry on with your horticultural practices, while staying compliant with government water regulations.
