FenceTank™

In a modern minimalist building project, form and function are essential.

A large, unsightly water tank is one of the most obvious ways to ruin that ambience and is simply not an option where space is limited.

With FenceTank™, you can create an almost invisible, slimline water resue system that seamlessly blends into the perimeter of your development. It’s perfect for sites that have limited space.

FenceTank™ is a popular solution for developments of all scales, from single sites to high-density housing.

High Density Developments

  • Meet council requirements

Residents of a Hobsonville Point subdivision that use the Fence Tank system to collect rainwater have saved an average of 56% on their water bills.

FenceTank™ FAQ's

FenceTank™ is made of high-quality food grade plastic which also has a UV rating of 15, which is recognised as the most appropriate grade for NZ conditions.

Each 1,000L FenceTank™ weighs approx. 90kg when empty and approx. 1090kg when full.

As the tank is made of polyethylene, which does not take paint well, we would recommend attaching a fence to the back as a first option. Painting the tank may null and void the warranty.

The fence posts protrude ~ 25mm (if using 100mm x100mm posts) or 50mm if using 100mm x 125mm posts. This allows for any fence paling and/or panels to be attached.

No, the FenceTank™ doesn’t require a concrete when positioned on what is defined in the building code as good ground, a level base of compacted gap7 gravel is sufficient. This saves you time and money! However, if the ground condition is less stable, a concrete plinth is recommended.

It is NOT recommended to fix the FenceTank™ to the posts of an existing fence unless the designer and/or installer is able to establish that the posts meet the FenceTank™ fixing requirements as per the FenceTank™ PS1.

Only simple, annual cleaning is required to maintain the FenceTank™ exterior. Use a soft bristled brush, water, or water mixed with a mild detergent to wash the plastic.

When used to store non-potable water, the interior of the tank does not require any maintenance since the use of leaf guards etc will remove vegetation before entering the tank. It is probable that small amounts of dust or similar will enter the tanks, but the amounts will not impact on the storage or capacity of the FenceTank™.

It is recommended that you follow your local councils’ guidelines for tank and pump maintenance

Any keen DIYer (with the correct tools) can install FenceTank™ when the water collected is only intended for outdoor use.

FenceTank™ must be installed by a registered plumber, such as Stormwater Systems, if the water will be used inside the home, (such as in the toilet and laundry). Contact us to find out more.

Yes, a tap can be installed near the base of the tank to gravity feed a tap. Although this will initially provide good pressure this will significantly reduce as water level lowers.

Yes, Stormwater Systems can provide this service for you! Although a competent home handy-person with the right tools can do this.

Building consent is only required if you plan on connecting water tanks to your internal plumbing. It is not required for outdoor use only.
