Rainwater Tank Installation Process

During the tank installation we will must also assess various aspects such as the condition of your roof, guttering, and downpipes. This must be in proper working order before we can connect the rain water tank.

The tank itself will be placed on a suitable base, which is usually compacted sand or concrete depending on the tank type.
We are experienced in handling tanks of different sizes and rain water tank types, including poly, concrete, bladder, and metal tanks.

The next step is plumbing the rainwater tank to direct the water wherever you need it, whether it’s for watering your garden filling your spa or swimming pool or flushing toilets.

Do you need a plumber to set up an irrigation system or to help plumb the tank to a grey water system? Have you considered installing additional components like pumps and outlet taps?
Downie Plumbing and Gas can install and set up the systems or configurations so that you can fully utilise the rainwater that you harvest.
