There are a number of questions you may have in your mind if you’re considering installing an underground water tank at your home. If you’re curious to learn more, you’ve come to the right place.

Underground water tanks provide a number of advantages when compared to other methods of water storage – mostly because they are excellent options if you’re looking to save outdoor space.

In this post, we will answer some of the most common questions regarding the use and installation of underground water tanks. Keep reading to understand more about how these tanks work and how they compare to other water storage products.


How much water can an underground water tank hold?

In-ground water tanks come in a variety of sizes – and they can even be custom-built to create larger tanks, based on your specific requirements. At Sydney Water Tanks, we offer products in the following sizes:

  • 3,800 litres
  • 6,100 litres
  • 10,000 litres
  • 11,500 litres

In situations where you need more storage capacity, we are able to interconnect multiple underground tanks to suit your needs.


Are underground tanks better than above-ground tanks?

It depends on several factors. If you are looking to maximise space in your garden area, underground tanks offer a significant advantage. You can leverage your existing space for entertaining and other outdoor activities, rather than using up space for water storage.

Also, underground tanks aren’t susceptible to damage caused by extreme weather conditions, such as wind, rain, bushfires and hail. You may save money by installing your tank in a secure space, beneath the ground’s surface. And since they are not accessible to outsiders, they also tend to be more secure.

However, above-ground tanks have certain benefits as well. You have more choice when it comes to where you want to install the tank, and they are typically easier to fix if they become cracked or damaged.


What are underground water tanks made of?

Your family depends on having access to a secure, reliable water source. For this reason, your underground tank should be built from strong and durable materials.

At Sydney Water Tanks, our products are made from extra strong steel-fibre reinforced concrete. In the case that damage occurs, we also offer a 30-year structural guarantee on our in-ground water tanks.
