Function combines with style and character in the Aqua-Barrel Water Tank. Aqua-Barrel Tanks utilise modern Aquaplate steel for clean, healthy rainwater. They feature stylish rounded curves and have the timeless appeal of a corrugated finish.
Water Tanks With Style and Character
Aqua-Barrel Water Tanks are manufactured from Aquaplate® steel to ensure your water tastes clean and fresh. The inside
surface of Aquaplate steel is coated with a food grade polymer skin that provides clear, healthy rainwater, and has a very
long, useable life.

Aqua-Barrel Water Tank Extras
Optional extras include a different sized outlet and a heavy-duty tank stand. The stands are 450mm high, engineered for strength and made from galvanised steel. The tank stands have rounded ends to match the tank. Adjustable feet kits are available with your stand to provide a stable footing on uneven ground.
Rainwater Tank Maintenance
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.

Tank Stand Dimensions
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.
Talk to us when making a decision about what tank, pumps and accessories are required for the application. When installing a rainwater tank, never attempt to install a tank to mains water without a qualified plumber.
