Rainwater Tanks

Concrete is capable of withstanding fire, heat, ground movement. It is a natural insulator, able to keep the stored water at a constant, cool temperature, in a dark environment which controls any algae growth. Taylex Tanks contain more concrete than other brands, they are cyclone rated. Built heavier and stronger.

Thicker Bases

The bases of our tanks are thicker to withstand the pressures of ground movement and the weight of water.

Reinforced Steel Mesh

The walls, lids and bases are reinforced with F72 and F41 steel mesh.

Tapered Walls

The walls of our tanks taper inwards from the top to the bottom so that there is more strength in the bottom of the walls where it’s needed.

PH Balancing

Naturally occurring minerals balance the PH levels of stored water, neutralising acidity. Water becomes alkaline, healthier for consumption.

Types of Installations


In Ground

Approximately 300mm - 500mm should be above ground level. Suitable for all tanks.


Above Ground

Tank to be placed on a boxed or sunken pad of 5mm-7mm gravel, 100mm deep.


Sloping Ground

Taylex Rainwater Tanks are NOT RETAINING WALLS. A flat, level area larger than the tank on all sides will need to be cut before the tank can be installed.


Under Ground

Tanks can be buried underground, with only an inspection hole visible at ground level. Only suitable for Heavy Duty and W80 Tanks.


2 Part Tank - 31,500L

In-ground installations are best for these tanks. Soil levels should be the same on all sides of the tanks to prevent leaking or movement of the tank. Also, where possible, the middle join should be placed underground.
