The Thin Tanks Range
Choose your rainwater storage tank
2000 Litre "Fat"
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND the use of wall brackets, free standing brackets, or galvanized posts to secure the tanks.
Due to the narrow foot print of the 1000 Litre tank it is essential for safety reasons that it be secured to either a brick wall or to the ground. If securing the tank to the ground, a 65mm square fence post x 2 can be purchased from us.
Australian made and manufactured from 100% U.V stabilised, food grade polyethylene resin
Vertical and horizontal ribs with cross connectors – additional support to contain expansion when filled with rainwater
Fitted with 2 brass 25mm outlets [1000L has 20mm outlets] at the bottom to allow easy interlinking of tanks – to maximize required water collection capabilities
All tanks come with the inlet strainer basket at the top of the tank and an overflow flange that can be suitably installed on site
First Flush Rainwater Diverter – We recommend a 1st flush system be connected when installing your rainwater tank. The 1st flush system is connected to the downpipe and takes the first flow of water which may contain contaminants from the roof and gutters and seals it off, then automatically diverts the remaining flow to the tank. A slow release valve ensures the chamber empties itself after rain and resets automatically. We recommend cleaning it out after a rain or prior to the next rain. It improves water quality and protects pumps and internal appliances.
Leaf Eater – The leaf eater prevents debris from entering the Rain Harvesting system, improves water quality and reduces tank maintenance. Most tanks have a leaf litter screen at the inlet point, but if a tank is not using the provided inlet point, the leafeater will do the job. This may apply when height is an issue and the inlet needs to be made in to a side entry point.
Wall Bracket – We recommend the use of the Z shaped wall brackets for the 1000L and 2000L slim thin tanks to secure the tanks when they are empty to prevent them from moving. The Z bracket is attached to bricks with rated anchor bolts or in to stud walls with appropriate bolts to hold the weight of the tank. It is important for tanks to be installed on a solid and completely level surface.
Free Standing Base Bracket – The free-standing base brackets require a suitable depth concrete footing or tank pad to secure a rated anchor bolt in to. Our engineer recommends a tank pad of 150mm concrete depth for installations. Base brackets will not be effective on pavers.
Free Standing Post – The 1000L Thin Tank needs to be secured with either the wall brackets or if free standing will need to have 65mmx65mmx2250mm galvanized posts cemented into the ground to a depth of 600mm.
Bucket Outlet – A Bucket Outlet can be requested when ordering if the customer wishes to attach a filter to fill a jug for drinking. Remember, the Slim Thin rainwater tanks are made of food grade polyethylene so if the proper filter is used, the rainwater collected is safe to drink. The bucket outlet is installed at approximately 400mm from the ground to allow enough room for a bucket to fit under the tap.
