Water Tanks – Bordertown

 

Bordertown is a small South Australian town near the Victorian border. It’s where the Dukes Highway and the railway line, the two main routes between Adelaide and Melbourne, cross Tatiara Creek.

Bordertown has a population of 2,792 people and has a relatively stable population, although it has seen an influx of new residents move to the area to provide a workforce for the local JBS Meatworks Abattoir, which employs over 470 people.

The district’s economy is largely based on agriculture, with cereal crops and livestock farming and in more recent years broad acre viticulture crops have begun to dominate the landscape. This is in part due to the availability of vast reserves of high-quality groundwater in the region.

While this resource is extensive, it is also a finite resource and careful management will need to be undertaken to ensure the sustainability of this asset. Research such as the recently completed SA Water 6-year water balance study into the movement of water through the Poocher Swamp catchment has provided a valuable insight into this local resource.

Rainwater is also a valuable source of high-quality water that can be used for drinking and commercial operations. It is important to invest in water harvesting and storage to ensure that you are able to sustain supply security in years of lower than average rainfall.

If you would like to increase your water storage capacity for your business or provide additional domestic supply for your home, Heritage Water Tanks can offer high-quality water tanks for all your water harvesting and storage needs.

Why are our tanks suited to South Australian conditions?

#1 - Heritage Water Tanks catch more rain

It is predicted that South Australia will experience the effects of climate change through more variable seasons and reduced rainfall in years to come. With this in mind, people living in regional SA will need to be more mindful about water security and water storage solutions. This is why Heritage Water Tank's unique gutter system is more important than ever. With our rainwater collection system, which collects water from the roof of your tank, you can save up to 22% of your tank's volume in additional water each year. Our unique gutter system also prevents scouring around the base of your tank in high rainfall areas, as almost all of the runoff from the roof of your tank is collected back inside the tank.

#2 - Heritage Water Tanks are Built TUFF

The steel used in the production of our water tanks is a minimum of 1mm thick. This is thicker than the material used by most of our competitors and to a profile designed in consultation with Engineers to provide superior strength and exceptional durability.

With increasingly frequent extreme weather events predicted in the future, the need for a tank that can withstand the elements is vital. Our water tank walls are made from the proven, highly corrosion resistant ZINCALUME® G300, alloy coated, structural steel.

#3 - Heritage Water Tanks Arma Liner

Heritage Water Tanks Arma Liner is manufactured to the highest standards. We won't compromise on quality, which is why we provide high-quality industrial-grade liners for our tanks. Under independent testing conditions, our liners were rated on lineal weight or weight per square meter and were found to weigh 700g/m2. This was of particular interest because our closest competitor's liner weighed under 500g/m2.

The high density of our liner makes it one of the heaviest liners in the Australian Domestic Water Tank Industry. Extra weight means extra density. This testing also identified our ARMA Liner as the best in relation to Shear Strength, Tear Strength and Puncture Resistance, compared to the Aqualiner and Infinity liners of our competitors at the time of testing.

Water Tank Sizes & Capacities

Choosing the right tank for your needs should not be a difficult task. Use our RAINWATER HARVEST CALCULATOR to see how much water you can collect from the surface of your house and any sheds you plan to collect water from. Most households with 4 people use around 240,000kL per year for general household use. If you have more people in your household or if you have a large garden, you may need more storage.
