Embodying the traditional character of a round corrugated water tank, the Aqua-Classic Tank has a timeless style that complements both traditional and modern homes. The Aqua-Classic Tank is available in a 3000 litre or a 5000 litre size.
Quality Water Storage With Classic Style
The round form of the Aqua-Classic Tank is not only attractive, but also very strong. To ensure your water is clean and healthy, Aqua-Classic Rainwater Tanks are manufactured from Aquaplate® steel. The inside surface of Aquaplate steel is coated with a food grade polymer skin that provides clear, healthy rainwater, and has a long, useable life. The bottom of the tank features a second layer of Aquaplate steel with the polymer side facing outwards to protect the base of the tank from the elements.
Details of the Aqua-Classic Water Tank
Available in a 3000 litre or a 5000 litre size. Aqua-Classic Water Tanks are supplied with a 1″ outlet and tap and have an inbuilt 300mm diameter filter that doubles as an inspection point when removed. They can be placed on a suitable concrete slab, with the best results achieved when bitumen saturated felt is laid between the tank and base. Other options include a different sized outlet and tap.

When installing your tank, ensure it is on a level, solid base. Do not store the tank on its side. Flush the tank before use, this is very important when connecting a pump. Do not stand on the top of the tank as the lid is not designed to support weight. When attaching the tap, use thread tape on the tap fitting and do not over tighten it. While the inlet filter provided with your tank will stop sticks and leaf debris entering the tank, it is also important to ensure the runoff area to the tank is free of debris. Clean the gutters every two months, or more regularly if trees overhang the roof. Remove any sludge from inside the tank when necessary. Do not scrub or scratch the interior surface of the tank because it has a protective coating covering the walls. Stratco tanks are produced from the highest quality materials and will provide many years of service if the important recommendations set out in the Stratco Selection, Use and Maintenance brochure are followed.
Get the full potential out of your rainwater tank with a complete range of pumps and accessories. A wide range of pumps are available. The pump you choose will depend on the tank size, the requirements of the appliance that will feed from the tank, the diameter of the plumbing pipes and the pressure required.
If you choose to run your appliances solely from tank water, you may need a top-up facility to fill part of the tank with mains water when the rainwater gets low. When connecting to mains water, a backflow prevention device is needed to prevent the reverse flow of polluted water from contaminating drinking water. Some pumps have backflow and top-up devices built into their design. We can supply separate top-up devices, backflow prevention devices and any pipes and fittings needed to complete the system.
