Water Tanks – Foster

Heritage Water Tanks proudly supplies premium quality steel water tanks for residential and commercial markets in the Southern Gippsland region. We offer domestic and rural tanks in sizes ranging from 55,oooL to 375,000L. As part of our quality promise, we offer a 20-year Pro-Rata Warranty on all of our water tanks.

Foster is a dairying and grazing town 174 kilometres south-east of Melbourne on the South Gippsland Highway in Victoria. It is about 20 kilometres north of the Gippsland coastline which includes Shallow Inlet, Corner Inlet, Waratah Bay, Yanakie and Wilsons Promontory. In 2006, Foster had a population of 2175.

Originally called Stockyard Creek, after the stream which still flows through the centre of the town, Foster was initially just a resting place for drovers travelling from Port Albert to Western Port. This changed with the discovery of gold in the 1880s, leading to a (modest) gold rush. The post office opened on 20 February 1871 as Stockyard Creek and was renamed Foster in 1879 when the township was established. In 1870 a gold rush along Stockyard Creek resulted in the township of that name and in late 1884 following comments by the Police Magistrate from Sale (Mr William H Foster) that he couldn’t hold court in a creek the town suddenly became ‘Foster’. Previously a stockyard for drovers had been established along the creek but several miles from the ultimate township. The story of Foster is in a publication available at the Foster & District Historical Society Inc. The railway was extended to Foster in 1892. When the gold ran out, Foster became a service centre of the burgeoning South Gippsland dairy industry. Today it is a thriving town that links Wilsons Promontory with the rest of Victoria.

Why are our tanks suited to Victorian conditions?

#1 - Heritage Water Tanks catch more rain

It is predicted that Victoria 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 Victoria 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.
