Farms predominantly utilise stock water tanks or portable water tanks. However recently, farmers have found that rainwater is extremely beneficial when used with sprays for crops, fertilisers and weed control. As a result, farmers are beginning to request, in increasing numbers, rain water tanks.
In many cases, dam water or bore water has impurities or PH levels that reduce the effectiveness of the sprays. Rain water has been found to offer the best and most consistent results.
As a result of this, many farmers are putting in large rainwater tanks to collect and store large volumes of water for their spraying regimes.
Benefits of Steelfab Farm Water Tanks:
- Our tanks have also been utilised by farmers for special applications including bore water tanks for irrigation, and as hydroponic tanks for mixing and storage of chemicals. In addition we now supply aquaculture tanks that are utilised for fish farming.
- Farmers are now considering installing large water tanks rather than dams due to the loss of water through evaporation and also due to contamination from various sources that render the water un-usable.
