Choosing Your Rainwater Tank Location

Choosing Your Rainwater Tank Location and Preparing the Pad, there are many common pitfalls when it comes to choosing a location and preparing your pad ready for rainwater tank installation. At Enduramaxx, we’ve thought through every scenario, making it easy for you to avoid them all.

Getting pump placement wrong can spell delays and extra cost It’s vital to consider pump placement early to ensure ready access to electricity. It’s also vital to ensure your tank is as close as possible to the water run-off point to avoid extra plumbing costs. Moving a tank is expensive and time-consuming, so it’s important to get it right the first time. Rest assured, our sales team will guide you to the perfect spot.

At Enduramaxx, we’ll guide you through how to select the best location for your tank, tank configuration (if you need multiple tanks) and we take into account your water-harvesting roof spaces, gutters, pipes, land and soil type, pump requirements and your particular water-usage requirements.  There are rainwater calculators online to see how much rainfall you get in your area.

Choosing Your Rainwater Tank Location

Under preparation of your pad could lead to tank shift, placement and preparation are important for a successful installation and tank longevity.  We’ll show you how to get the best tank performance by creating a 100% level concrete pad to guarantee a 100% level water tank installation.

Uneven water flow and lower water-storage capacity, creating an uneven pad may lead to a sloping tank, compromising your tank’s volume capacity and output. Once water is in the tank, it’s impossible to move it without emptying the whole tank, so it’s vital to ensure your pad is completely level from the get-go.  Tank structural integrity may become compromised as rainwater tanks are built to be stronger at the bottom to support the pressure. Level water storage is critical to avoid changing the physics and structural integrity of your tank.

Keep in mind that 1000 Litres is 1 tonne, so with a 20,000 Litre tank, if it becomes heavier on one side due to an uneven pad, the pressure build-up can be huge, leading to problems with plumbing and ongoing maintenance, not to mention damage to your adjoining buildings and rooves. The look won’t be great, either.

Under preparation leads to delays at installation

You don’t want to be caught short missing key tools and materials at installation time. To get the most value out of your tank, we’ll help you to be 100% prepared ready for installation for your Enduramaxx tank.
