Importance of Water Tanks

Whether you need a water tank to harvest rainwater or to fight fire, we can help. We stock a wide range of potable and non-potable water tanks here at Cotterill Civils.

Our tanks are ideal for domestic, industrial and agricultural applications, providing you with a suitable storage solution for water and chemicals. We supply both plastic HDPE water tanks and galvanised steel tanks in a wide range of sizes.

Why are water tanks so important?

As you may already be aware; a water tank has countless uses across various industries. Choosing the right water tank and tank size will make things easier for you and provide you with the best value for your money.

What can a water tank be used for?

Here’s just a few examples of what our water tanks can be used for:

  • Rainwater harvesting/Irrigation
    Who would have thought that collecting rain that falls on your roof could be reused at a later date? Our water tanks are designed to store rain and divert it until you need it.
    Rainwater harvesting is ideal for irrigation – not only is it free from chemicals and chlorine, it’s also easily accessible. A water tank will offer a money-saving alternative that is also environmentally friendly.
  • Crop growth
    Whether you grow your own crops to earn a living or as a source of food, they need water to grow. Our water tanks are available in an assortment of sizes and are ideal for agriculture and horticulture purposes, such as crop spraying and water bowsers.
  • Emergencies
    Our tanks can be used for emergencies like dust suppression and firefighting. A fire extinguisher is designed to put out small fires but investing in a water storage tank will enable you to prevent the spread of flames, reducing any serious consequences. A water tank acts as a backup water supply, hence why it’s used in the event of fires and other emergencies
  • Drinking water
    Our water tanks are ideal for those who live in isolated locations and don’t have access to clean drinking water.  The potable tanks are used to store drinking water and are often found in modern homes. Our tanks are suitable for those living in areas of poor water quality.
  • Fertiliser storage
    We stock a large range of tanks to store fertilisers and molasses. From 1250 Litres to 60,000 Litres, our tanks enable bulk ordering of ready mixed fertiliser, saving mixing time and ensuring your fertiliser will not settle out or need constant agitation, minimising wastage.
  • Chemical & dosing
    Our chemical and dosing tanks come in thirteen types and are specifically designed for use within the chemical industry. Our plastic tanks are rotationally moulded using mid density polyethylene (MDPE) for added strength and durability. And we have many configurations available to suit your specific needs.
  • OEM manufacturing
    Our specialist tanks can be used for chemical mixing, effluent processing, soil remediation, liquid clarification, irrigation systems, stone quarrying and precious stone mining to name a few.
  • Food/brewing
    We have a range of batch tanks, cone tanks, bunded tanks and silo tanks for food processing, beer brewing, wine and cider making. From 150 litres to 30,000 litres and beyond in size, our polyethylene tanks are ideal for breweries and wineries as they offer reduced costs, portability and scalability.
  • Flushing toilets
    To prevent exposure to bacteria and the spread of illness and disease, you need to make sure that you have sufficient water in your cistern to flush the toilet. We supply tanks specifically for this purpose.

Each of the water tanks that we supply are designed to withstand wear and tear, and also prevent rust and corrosion. The durability of the water and fertiliser storage tanks is second to none; they are designed to last and withstand all impacts. No matter which of our water tanks you decide is right for you; you can rest assured that it’s easy to maintain and keep clean.
