If you’re wondering which portable water tank would best suit your needs, you have come to the right place. Let’s have a look at the difference between different water tank styles.

Metal Tanks or Steel Tanks:

These traditional tanks have become known for corroding and splitting at the seams over time. While they do come in a wide array of sizes and can be customised to fit specific project needs it is important to know that there are more durable and lightweight options on the market. When choosing a steel tank, space and volume often is the biggest concern.

Fibreglass Tanks:

Fibreglass tanks are the least common style of water tanks. These tanks are durable, corrosive material and highly-heat resistant. However, fibreglass tanks come in a limited range of sizes and are non-recyclable.

Pillow (Bladder) Tanks:
