Increasing desire for more efficient use of water has led to the development of some fantastic rainwater harvesting tanks. Zones can design the right technical rainwater system according to the council requirements and integrate it into your landscape to minimize any visual impact.
Ideal for watering your garden, a smaller tank of around 240 liters may be enough to fill your personal needs, especially if you live in an area where it rains often. Zones can help you pick the best rain barrel for your rainwater collection needs and install it in the ideal space for you.
For homeowners who live in drier areas or who plan on using their rainwater more often, a larger tank with a capacity of over 500 liters may be required. A tank of this size can also be used to supply water for indoor needs.
Perhaps you live in a dry area and plan to use rainwater for all your non-drinking needs, or rainwater is going to be your only source of water. In this case, you will need an extra large tank that can contain between 10,000 to 30,000 liters of water. Zones can help you set up a rainwater tank, no matter the size.

Plastic or polyethylene water tanks are a great option for homeowners who are on a budget. Although these don’t last as long as other options, they are lightweight, available in a wide range of sizes and suitable for most homes.

Contemporary steel tanks come with a long lasting polymer coating that lines the interior of the tank and are tough, lightweight, and can fit almost every need.
These often need a food-grade coating to be suitable for storing water. They can be extremely stiff but relatively light, making them prone to cracking. However, they allow for more light to enter the tank, which reduces algae growth. As these vary in quality, it is best to heed the advice of a professional when it comes to picking them.
A blow the ground tank is ideal for homeowners who are looking to install large tanks and for those who want to keep them out of sight. This is a more intrusive job and it is ideal to consult with a professional such as Zones to get them installed.
It is extremely important to regularly maintain your rainwater tank, which includes desludging the tank, clearing your roof and guttering for debris, keeping your roof clean, as well as keeping the pipes and other structural parts clean and clear.
If you are looking for a water tank of a specific size or shape, Zones can help you create a bespoke custom-made tank to match your individual wants and needs. This way you can choose the material you want, decide the water capacity, and design the tank to cohesively blend in with your property.
For the sole purpose of watering your garden, Zones can install garden water tanks in or close to your garden in a way that does not interfere with the aesthetics of your garden. Our landscaping specialists can also connect the tank to your watering systems to help you automate the watering process.
Designed for more elaborate operations such as farms, these tanks are designed to fill your unique needs and can hold over 30,000 liters of water. Zones is not just limited to suburbian installations and can help you install your rural water tank.
Smaller sized rainwater tanks are available for urban and suburban homes. These can be used to harvest rainwater to help with gardening, laundry, or for emergency situations. The water capacity of these tanks can range from 1,000 liters to 3,000 liters. Zones can help you choose the ideal water tank that blends in with your home and assist with selecting the ideal spot for installation.
