BluenGrey offer a full installation service, with suitable qualified installers. It’s essential to know that failure to follow the tank manufacturer’s installation instructions may result in warranties being voided.
- It is recommended that an engineer design a suitable stand to suit the required size tank
Preparing a pad for your tank to be sited on
- Your tank must be sited on level, stable ground which, ideally, has been compacted
- If you’re using gravel as a base, between 60-100mm of compacted road base, a thin layer of sand or blue metal dust (3mm stone) may be needed over the road base if you’re using a larger gravel size.
- A retaining formwork may be needed to hold the base in place (such as treated pine, concrete, etc.) this helps avoid erosion under the tank.
- A reinforced concrete slab is recommended for steel tanks, it should be 75-100mm thick with F72 mesh (depending on the tank size)
- The tank pad should be approximately 100mm larger than the diameter of the tank
- If you’re installing a pump near the tank, make a pad large enough to fit the pump as well
Plumbing a water tank
- Tank overflow must be taken away from the tank to avoid overflow undermining the tank base
- Use flexible hose connections between the tank and the pump
- Check local council requirements, for example Eurobodalla Council require 100mm over flow pipe 150mm down form top of tank.
