Water Tanks – Swan Hill

Heritage Water Tanks proudly supplies premium quality steel water tanks for residential and commercial markets in the Mallee region of Victoria. We offer domestic and rural tanks in sizes ranging from 27,000L to 353,000L. As part of our quality promise, we offer a 20-year Pro-Rata Warranty on all of our water tanks.

The Mallee is a 39,300-square-kilometre agricultural region,  encompassing the Buloke, Gannawarra, Mildura City and Swan Hill City local government areas.

The Mallee has virtually no surface runoff of rainfall, as the native vegetation has so high a rooting density that the rainfall of most years is easily absorbed. The porous sandy soils mean that any excess in an exceptionally wet year will recharge groundwater supplies, which are often highly saline. Flow from the Wimmera River to the south supplies Lake Hindmarsh and, very occasionally (in 1918, 1956 and 1975), overflows to the north. The Murray River is, thus, the only source of fresh water for the region and is consequently overburdened by intensive irrigation.

The climate of the Mallee is the hottest and driest in Victoria owing to its inland location. Rainfall is usually only produced by the most vigorous frontal systems or by occasional penetration of tropical air in the summer. The rainfall of Swan Hill os around 318mm/annum.

In 1883 the first of several red brick water towers were built to supply the growing town with water. Water was pumped out of the river and into the top of the tower by a wood-fired steam engine, and then flowed by gravitation to surrounding businesses and private residences. Many of these towers can still be seen around town.

As a result of the low rainfall and very high evaporation rate in the Mallee region, residents of Swan Hill are inherently careful with their water use.

Heritage Water Tanks can offer high-quality water tanks for all your water harvesting and storage needs. Ask us about our water saving gutter technology. Call 1800 115 552.

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

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 Multi-Layer Liner

Our food grade tank liners are fabricated with a unique multi-layer construction which offers great durability, flexibility and strength. As one of the most critical components of a water tank, they ensure that your water stays fresh, taste-free and protected from contaminants.

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.
