PROJECT STORY

Rainwater Harvesting Tank Installation

ABOUT THE PROJECT


 

DATE

April 2023

REQUIREMENTS

Our client required an actual useable capacity of 5,200 litres. From the outset, the brief for this new housing development rain harvesting tank was very detailed.

PRODUCT SUPPLIED

L-Shaped Pre-Insulated TIF Tank with base levelling steels.

TANK DIMENSIONS & CAPACITY

3m x 1m x 1.5m + 2m x 1m x 1.5m

5,200 Litres Actual Useable Capacity

Project Challenge

The brief received from the client was very detailed and all drawings were submitted to us at the point of enquiry.

However even with the best laid plans, the plantroom became more problematic on the day of the installation as it was 250mm short in one direction.

Ordinarily a traditional internally flanged tank comes in lateral panel increments of 500mm & 1000mm and had this been the case, our site crew would have had to sacrifice 500mm from the tank length resulting in a significant loss in the water storage tank capacity.

Our site crew would have had to sacrifice 500mm from the tank length resulting in a greater loss in the water storage tank capacity.

Solution

Given the limited space in the plantroom, an L-shaped TIF tank was specified to ensure safe and correct installation and maintenance. TIF tanks are the ideal rainwater harvesting tank for projects where the plantroom space is very limited.

Due to the versatility of our panel range, it was possible to swap out two 500mm panels for a 750mm section and this reduced the initial loss of capacity by 50%.

Once the panels were manufactured, our experienced site crew returned to site to complete the installation and as you can see from the pictures, it fits perfectly.

NSF Approved TIF Tanks

This totally internally flanged rainwater harvesting tank is ideal for limited floor space as they do not have base to side joints or external corner joints, allowing for the tank to be built and maintained from the inside.

Tricel Weston’ range of TIF tanks are NSF Regulation 4 (1)a approved ensuring they are of the highest quality
