Rainwater Tank Installation Guide

  • The tank stand must be stable, firm, flat, compacted & free from any rocks, stones, or sharp objects.
  • The tank stand must be larger than the tank diameter & able to fully support the tank
  • If sand, crusher dust, or other consolidated fill is used as the stand, it is to be a minimum of 75mm in thickness & a supporting wall is to be used around it to prevent erosion
  • Tank stand must be able to safely support the tank when full of water, bearing in mind that water weighs 1kg per litre, so a 5000L tank will weigh 5 tonnes when full
  • A reinforced concrete base is ideal but must also be larger than the diameter of the tank
  • The overflow of the tank must be piped at least 2m clear of the tank to avoid undermining of the tank stand
  • All CORSTRIP® must be removed from tank
    immediately after installation
