Determining between a steel or polyethylene water storage tank is one of the primary factors you may need to consider when the time to acquire a rainwater tank arrives.

Just like most life decisions, personal situations will dictate which path best suits each individual, however there are distinct variables you have to take into consideration in order to make the best purchasing decision.

Water tank prices should not be your sole consideration.


One of the properties of a polyethylene rainwater tank is its relatively small size and therefore its transportability (so water tank size will be a factor).

Noting its smaller sized footprint, the poly tank alternative is desirable if you are confined by space, design, or access problems. This is offset by considerably smaller water storage capacity of poly tanks and the resulting need to buy multiple poly tanks to build sufficient water storage capacity becomes uneconomical.

Both steel and poly rain water tanks are readily available in a variety of sizes, with our poly water tanks extending from 9,000 to 25,000 litres.

Top Quality Water Tanks Mean Longevity

Our poly water tanks possess the advantage of a seamless construction providing them with higher impact strength and a much higher resistance to corrosion. The result is a high performance, locally made, poly water storage product.
