Product Overview

These tanks provide a superb solution for storing drinking / potable water when access to a mains water supply is not available or you need to store water (from the mains) to cope with peaks in demand.

If you don't have mains water on site and/or the water pressure is low, you will use an above ground tank to store potable (drinking) water brought to your site by a delivery vehicle tanker, for example. In this case, we'll be able to advise you on suitable connections (a) for the water to be pumped into the tank from the delivery vehicle and (b) drain valves so that you can access that water, usually from a point near the base of the tank.

Did you know, the water in non-potable tanks could be used to :

  • Flush toilets
  • washing down vehicle or site amenities
  • An extra resource in the unfortunate event of a fire

The drinking water in potable tanks could be used:

  • Where mains water isn't accessible or the pressure is too low to cope with demand
  • For a temporary water supply for events, festivals or a temporary camping sites
  • As back-up emergency drinking water supply
  • For food industry applications

"Potable" water tanks are moulded using "WRAS-approved" plastic polymer. WRAS stands for Water Regulations Approvals Scheme: an independent UK certification body for plumbing products and materials, helping business and consumers choose products that don't cause any detrimental effects on the safety or quality of the drinking water.

Capacities range from 2,500 to 30,000 litres (500 to 6,600 gallons) but if that's not enough, you can also link these tanks together to create additional volume.

These water tanks can be configured in many ways, with:

  • fittings to get the water into the tank
  • drain valves to allow pump connection / water removal when the tank is full
  • breather valves and bolt down feet
  • part-fill valves to allow tanks to be topped with mains water when required
  • liquid level sight glasses and linking kits...

NOTES:

  • [*] We intend to discontinue these tanks in favour of the 2024 version of the same capacity tanks. (400 Litre tank will be substituted in favour of the 450 Litre tank)
  • Standard stock colour is black. Other available colours include natural, blue or bottle green (latter two colours subject to a 10% price uplift)
  • [1] Do not lift with liquid contents on board
  • [2] Please note: tank sizes quoted are subject to a +/-3% variation
  • [3] Standard outlet fitting provided is 1½". The outlet is not fitted, so that you have the flexibility to position it where required, or not use it. Other outlet sizes are available: 1" or 2" being the most popular. Outlet fittings allow you to connect to other equipment or to drain the tanks. Drain valves and linking pipes are also available, the latter to link tanks together
  • [4] The dry weight is the non-packaged weight of the basic tank. Tanks will be palletised for shipment with a pallet distributor, not a parcel service.
    In use, each 1 litre of liquid equates to 1 KG in weight
  • - WRAS-approved tanks will come supplied with non-vented lid and a Byelaw 30 Breather Kit (for England & Wales). Scottish customers will require a Byelaw 60 Breather Kit
  • - Tanks with baffles will be suitable for truck-mounting - i.e. for the transportation of liquids e.g. for watering / spraying purposes

Please note: tank sizes quoted are subject to a +/-3% variation.

  • S = Standard Tank | SL = Slimline Tank | LP = Low Profile Tank.
  • We use differing grades of plastic and vary the wall thickness to match the tank to your application.
  • We reserve the right to amend the technical specification to improve the product without prior notification.

  • Robust, impact-resistant, long-lasting, UV-stabilised and rust free
  • Rotationally moulded in the UK using a heated, hollow mould filled with plastic polymer, guaranteeing consistent quality and dimensions.
  • Cylindrical in shape with strengthening ribs
  • Lightweight plastic means manufacturing costs and less than their metal counterparts, the result is a product which is cheaper and easier to transport, and reduces your carbon footprint
