Water Tanks – Parkes

Parkes is a town in New South Wales, Australia. It is the main settlement in the local government area of Parkes Shire. Parkes had an urban population of 15,337 as at June 2015.

A rich variety of farming is conducted in the region immediately surrounding Parkes, although the staple farming products are wheat and wool. Parkes prides itself on its modernising ideology, historically and culturally. The feature film The Dish set in Parkes, was largely filmed in Forbes’ historic precinct. This was due to very few historic buildings remaining in Parkes. Parkes is also home to the Parkes Spacemen rugby league club. The area is supported by a gold and copper mine, Northparkes, 27 km north-north-west of the town.

Parkes became a key country location after the completion of the railway in 1893, serving as a hub for a great deal of passenger and freight transport until the 1980s. A major focus for the region going forward will be water conservation. Water is no longer the freely available commodity that has been in the past and the community will need to have a stronger focus on water harvesting and storage in order to meet demand expectations.

Parkes Shire Council has been proactively working towards future proofing water security for the Shire through a combination of projects and drawing on a number of different water sources including dams, river, bores and recycled water. The construction of a newWater Treatment Plant (WTP) is underway which provide a safe, secure and reliable water supply for Parkes and Peak Hill now and into the future. Upgrades have also been completed to Lake Endeavour for improved water security involving strengthening the Dam to ensure the long-term stability and integrity of the structure.

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.
