Site preparation is the important first stage of the construction of any tank.All our tanks can be constructed either aboveground, in ground or underground, but all tanks require a level foundation of base material (Blue Rock or Equivalent) to a depth of no less than 100mm and compacted to 104 Kpa.
There must be sufficient room around the base diameter of tank to allow for the laying out of the formwork , Building up of scaffolding and for the general safety of construction crew.We also require Heavy vehicle access to the site for vehicles such as Concrete mix truck, concrete Pump truck as well as our formwork truck.
Above Ground Tanks can be fitted with No Roof or Corrugated Iron Roof or Concrete Roof.In Ground Tanks are constructed so that the concrete roof is 100mm to 200mm above the ground level(Ideal for Gazebo or Patio area or just open B.B.Q. area).
Under Ground Tanks Can be covered with 300mm soil coverage to return your area to its original use.If required we can construct a roof design to include Light Traffic (up to 2 tonne) or if required to include a Heavy Traffic roof (up to 25 tonne) for under driveways or in car park areas. Extra mesh is used to reinforce the roof in these cases.
All concrete tops are supported by load bearing columns which are poured at the same time as the roof to enhance the tank strength.The floors of all tanks are sloped for ease of cleaning as needed
Advance Concrete Tanks | Concrete Water Storage Tanks
I have been in water storage construction for over 15 years. I also come from a rural background. On the land and now in the towns water is becoming a very precious resource. Advance Concrete Tanks treat the construction of water storage with that in mind.
All tanks are engineer designed to above Australian design standards. Tanks can be constructed in various sizes starting at 25,000 litres up to 1,000,000 litres (2,200 gal to 220,000 gal). Water is Australia's most precious resource and it deserves to be treated as such...
For the past two decades Australians have depended on concrete water tanks more than any other type, to store and protect their most valuable resource. Water stored in an enclosed concrete tank is always cool, clear and algae free, and concrete tanks clearly outlast the rest. A concrete tank won't blow away in a storm, can withstand (even help fight) rural Australia's most feared enemy, fire.
Most importantly, concrete is a natural product and an ideal medium for drinking water storage. It won't deteriorate or breakdown even in the harshest weather conditions Australia can offer and there is no danger of loose, perhaps invisible fibres contaminating your drinking water.
