Why Choose Concrete Water Tanks?
Concrete water tanks are perfect for Australian conditions. They are the only tanks that are bushfire proof, can be placed in-ground and last much longer than any other type of water tank. Plus, they are better for your health.
Yes, better for your health! Let us explain: Firstly, concrete naturally reduces acidity in rainwater. It also keeps your water cooler and therefore bacteria free and for over 100 years they have been proven to be free from algae, cryptosporidium and Legionnaires disease.
A report on ABC South East in November 2010 examined copper poisoning caused by acidic rainwater from plastic tanks corroding household copper water pipes. It also stated “It’s usually not an issue with concrete tanks as they leach lime into the water, reducing the acidity and therefore reduces its corrosion of copper pipes”. Read the full article here.
