Water Tanks – Canberra

Canberra is the capital city of Australia and sites within the ACT. The Territory sits within NSW and has a population of over 403,468. It is Australia’s largest inland city and the eighth-largest city overall. Canberra’s water is stored in four reservoirs, the Corin, Bendora and Cotter dams on the Cotter River and the Googong Dam on the Queanbeyan River. Although the Googong Dam is located in New South Wales, it is managed by the ACT government.

Interestingly, Canberra has used the same total annual amount of scheme water since the 1970s, despite the city’s population doubling in the past 40 years. The average water consumption per person per day in the capital is 304 litres – about 40 per cent less than before the millennium drought. The highest total water consumption a year was 77,261 megalitres in 1990-91. In comparison, in 2016-17 total water consumption had dropped to 49,801 ML. In the 1990s, each person used an average of about 500 litres a day. By 2016-17 that had dropped to 300litres a person. Since 2008, water consumption has been very steady, with an average water consumption of roughly 300 litres per person per day, or almost 110 kilolitres per capita per year.

It’s thought that the millennium drought seared into Canberra’s psyche the need to conserve water. As Canberran’s are inherently water-wise, it makes sense that the need to store water efficiently and effectively should be front of mind. If you would like to increase your water storage capacity for your business or provide an alternative 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 New South Wales conditions?

#1 - Heritage Water Tanks catch more rain

It is predicted that New South Wales 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 the regions 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.
