Water Tanks – Whittlesea

Heritage Water Tanks proudly supplies premium quality steel water tanks for residential and commercial markets in the North Melbourne region of Victoria.

Whittlesea is a town in Victoria, 40 kilometres north-east from Melbourne. Its local government area is the City of Whittlesea, with a population of over 150,000.

The Yan Yean Water Supply System was constructed in the years from 1853 and is the oldest surviving water supply system in Victoria, still forming part of Melbourne’s water supply today.

Whittlesea is within the Westernport catchment and includes the following major waterways:

  • Merri Creek
  • Darebin Creek
  • Plenty River
  • Mernda Wetlands
  • Woodland Waters Wetlands
  • University Hill Wetlands

In recent years, the City of Whittlesea, in partnership with the Yarra Valley Water and the State Government trialled a Rainwater Tank Offset Scheme for Sports Fields. During the recent Victorian drought, water restrictions were imposed from 2006 to 2012 to limit the irrigation of more than 40 community sports fields within the City of Whittlesea and over 1,500 sports fields across broader metropolitan Melbourne.

The initiative to install water tanks was expected to achieve the effect of offsetting potable water use. This saving was then intended to be banked in Melbourne’s reservoirs for use in times of drought.

Heritage Water Tanks offer high-quality water tanks for all your water harvesting and storage needs. If you are interested in installing water tanks to increase your water harvesting and storage capacity, call us on 1800 115 552. Ask us about our water saving gutter technology, which can help you to harvest even more water from the roof of your water tank.


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.
