What we do
Our drivers install the tank fittings on site when the tank is located in its final position so that the fill point, overflow and outlet are sized and located to suit your requirements.
For Rural Tanks up to 6100g (27,500L) our trucks with trailer are up to 20 metres in length, 2.8 metres in width and 5.3 metres in height (this will vary on load combinations at the time).
For Rural Tanks 38,000 and 50,000 Litres, access is required for a 20m long truck and trailer with a height clearance of 5.2m, and access to pull alongside the tank pad. A tilt trailer is used to place the tank into position. The pad must be no higher than 80mm.
If you cannot accommodate the above then the driver will deliver to a mutually agreed accessible point, install your fittings and stainless-steel tie-down points, then the relocation to the tank site will be the responsibility of the purchaser.
As an additional service the drivers carry a number of additional fitting sizes to avoid any inconvenience and extra expense, fittings other than standard should be organized in advance. Each driver is highly trained in the fitting-out of water tanks and can place the fittings to the customer’s requirements.
What you must do
