Global’s Water Tanks for Aussie farms

By in Cartage Tanks, News, Water Storage Tanks

Water storage tanks are the favoured way to cut down on water bills and ensure a reliable water source all year round for most Australian farmers. Water tanks for farms are precious assets for irrigation systems and livestock watering systems

Living on a farm means you need to be conscious about your water storage and supply. It’s something you probably don’t want to worry about, but something you always need to be aware of nonetheless. Over the years, Global Rotomoulding has created a range of durable tanks that take as much hassle out of water storage as possible. 

Global Rotomoulding has a range of water tanks that cover a diverse variety of applications. If you’re on the hunt for water storage options for your farm, we have a product for every job. All Global tanks are manufactured in polyethylene that complies with AS 2070 (plastics materials for food contact use) and AS/NZS 4020 (products for use in contact with drinking water). This material is 100% recyclable. If you’re looking for the perfect combination of affordable and durable water storage, you can’t go past poly tanks.

Above Ground Water Tanks 

It’s common for rural properties in Australia to not have access to the main city water supply. Instead, farms rely on water tanks for all their needs. Filling these tanks can be done by storing rainwater, carted water, groundwater or surface water. Carted water is often seen as a last resort when existing storage options go dry because it is costly and inefficient compared to the other water filling options. 

Water tanks for farms bear several responsibilities from watering crops, providing drinking water to livestock, running household appliances, cleaning and more. Above-ground tanks are the most common system for farmers because it’s cheaper and easier to install than other options. It can also reach higher capacities than underground tanks and transportable tanks.
