Best Water Tanks for Gardens: Buyers Guide

Choosing the best water tanks for gardens can be a challenge, a water tank that is too small will result in running out of water sooner or not being able to stores enough rainwater when it falls. How much rainwater storage you require will depend on the roof area of the buildings, sheds or garage you are looking at collecting from, the amount of water you want to save and the space and budget you have for the tanks.

We run through which type of water tank for the garden, offers you the best quality, price, and purpose?

Garden water tanks mainly fall in the following categories

Water Butts for the Garden

Garden Water Butts are easily attached to a drainpipe, using a rain diverter which captures the water by diverting it into the Water Butt.  Once the water butt is full, the water coming down the drainpipe will directly flow down the drain.

Vertical Tanks for the Garden

The vertical tanks for the garden are the 500, 720 and 1000 litre tanks for larger volume rainwater storage.  These ‘medium-scale’ domestic rainwater harvesting tanks are specified for professionals where bulk storage of rainwater and a compact footprint are required.  With these vertical tanks, their footprint is key with a small footprint of just 70 cm diameter, they can fit just about anywhere outside the house.

Slimline Water Tanks for the Garden

The slimline tanks for the garden are our popular 400, 500, 800 & 1000 litres tanks for larger volume rainwater.  These water tanks are fitted with a bsp outlet as standard, available with a choice of rainwater filters to prevent debris going into the tank and a range of outlets and hose connectors.
