How to slash your water bill – permanently
Whether it be as part of the conditions of a new build or renovation, or as a free-standing retro-fit, water tanks are becoming as common a sight in suburbia as they are in the bush. As useful as they are versatile, Kingspan’s water tanks can help you store water for everything from watering lawns and gardens to topping up pools, flushing toilets and supplying household water appliances like washing machines. By utilising rainwater within your home, the savings can really add up on your water bill.
With house blocks getting smaller at the same time as the footprint of homes are expanding, there are two major issues you face when it comes time to install a tank: achieving the best storage capacity for the site that has the least impact on living areas and lifestyle.
Kingspan have been in the steel water tank business since 1934 and in that time they’ve learnt more than a trick or two to help you install the best water storage system for your needs. And rest assured, Kingspan are ahead of the pack in providing everything from innovative design solutions and tanks to cutting-edge rainwater system accessories.
Determine the ideal tank size for your needs couldn’t be easier. Kingspan have four tank styles to choose from, with capacities ranging from 500L to 29,000L. These styles provide you with options for a range of situations:
- Slimline – The ideal solution for tight spaces (600 – 8,700L).
- Modline – The square ends maximise capacity and add a designer look (770 – 9,000L).
- Round – The classic tank when space isn’t an issue (500L – 29,000L).
- Square – The ultimate space saver, it can be backed into corners with no wasted space (560 – 7,900L).
Calculating the potential storage capacity is as easy as measuring the area available for the base and the maximum practical or desirable height before heading to the Kingspan online water tank Size-A-Lator.
The Size-A-Lator allows you to easily customise your tank size by adjusting the sliders for the footprint and height and you’ll instantly see its capacity in litres. As you progress to get a quote on your tank, you can select inlet and outlet locations, completely customising the installation to suit the site.
Unlike off-the-shelf tanks, the Kingspan built-to-order system ensures you can easily maximise the use of space and achieve the highest volume storage outcomes. Rather than trying to make the site suit the tank, leaving the installation looking like a bolt-on, Kingspan tanks are custom-created to seamlessly integrate with the available space. Just the way it should be.
With all Kingspan tanks you get the added peace of mind of knowing they are made in Australia with premium Bluescope AQUAPLATE® steel. They’re all certified as drinking water-safe and come with a 10-year construction warranty and 20-year warranty against corrosion.
Being Bluescope steel, this also means you can custom select from more than 20 different Colorbond colours, tailoring the finished tank to suit your outdoor colour schemes.
Your custom order doesn’t just end with the tank. You can select from a range of innovative pump systems that can suit any application, from house supply to only the outdoors. You’ll also find excellent space-saving ideas such as the Evolution MkIII pump. It’s fully integrated into the tank so you won’t lose any external space to pump boxes. Perfect for suburban situations where space is limited and a neater finish is wanted.
You can also add a range of filters, for both the catchment and supply sides, and a host of other accessories. This means your tank can arrive onsite as a complete package, making for an easier, faster and more efficient install.
