Our underground concrete water tanks are the perfect way to store your water underground. All our tanks are built with either 6 or 8 support legs depending upon the load bearing weight of the tank. Our standard tanks are built with 6 legs (load bearing columns), which will take up to 20 tonne of load bearing weight. This top will support a truck or car.
Airports, car wash yards, shopping centres, schools, hospitals all use underground tanks to store their water. Organisations do this to save on space, and not to detract from the look of their sites.
Underground concrete water tanks are perfect where lack of space is an issue. By being underground no above ground space is used.
The basic rating of 10 tonne half metre of dirt/fill can be placed on top. The flat surface of these tops can also be used as a patio/ barbecue area. If your requirements are for a heavier load-bearing top then this can be built as well, extra mesh is used to support the top in these cases.
The mesh used for the top of concrete tops is either SL92 or SL102 depending upon what load bearing weight is required.
The concrete top is supported by 6 load-bearing columns for the 20-tonne roof. These columns are poured at the same time as the top to enhance tank strength.
The floor of the underground concrete water tank is sloped into a pit, just offset of the manhole, which enables it to be totally emptied and cleaned out if need be.
