Water Tank Installations

Brookwater Tanks has extensive experience installing water tanks in domestic houses, units / apartment block, acreage properties, schools, businesses and shopping centers. There are two ways for a water tank to be installed. The most common would be the Dry System. However, both systems are equally as good and it will depend on your property layout as to which on we use.

The Dry System

The Dry System is the most common system and involves overhead pipes connected to your gutters feeding into your water tank.  This system is called the dry water tank system as the feed pipes run dry after the rain has stopped. With this water system the main consideration is to ensure the tank height is low enough to allow fall into the tank and that the overhead pipe is well supported.

The Wet System

In Australia the Wet System has been used for many years. This system enables the water tanks to be positioned away from the water collection source and uses the principal that water will always be level. As the line fills and builds up, the water will then spill into the tank. When the rain stops, water will remain in the pipework and therefore it is called the wet system. When installing this kind of water system we ensure mosquito protection and pre-filtering of the water before it enters the charged system to keep pipes clear.

Where your water tank is installed is important, so when choosing a location for your water tank you need to consider the points below:

You can install a rainwater tank yourself, taking into consideration the points mentioned above, but if you feel you need some sound advice before commencing, then contact Brookwater Tanks and talk to an experienced installer.
