What is the Best Material for Water Tanks?

With the constant threat of drought and water restrictions looming across the country, you need a substantial amount of water every day, for extremely important purposes like cleaning and drinking. The challenge is that clean water becomes scarce in these situations, especially in a drought or when there are water restrictions in effect. Rain Cycle offers a solution to the problem.

Rainwater harvesting can help people secure their daily water needs and water tanks are an absolutely necessary part of the solution. You can install a rainwater harvesting system on your property. When it rains, water is funneled into the pipes connected to the water tank.

The benefits of installing a water tank to supply you with water, for a notable period of time, is critcal when you don’t have supply from the local mains or when rain is not plentiful.

Rain Cycle designs, manufactures and installs concrete rainwater tanks that can be positioned on the ground level or underground, depending on your property, or as your requirements.

If you choose a water tank that will suit your requirements, there are factors that need to be considered, such as your budget, the tank material, the catchment area and the location of the tank.

Rain Cycle uses concrete for their tank material and here are the reasons why:

  • Concrete Tanks will last a LIFETIME
  • Concrete Tanks keep your water cool, year round
  • Concrete Tanks need less maintenance
  • Concrete Tanks keep your water algae free!
  • Highly Durable
  • Increased security being protected underground
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Concrete Tanks will NOT Rust
  • Concrete Tanks will NOT Burn
  • Concrete Tanks will NOT Melt
  • Concrete Tanks will NOT Blow Away


Water TanksTanks made of concrete are very durable A good quality concrete tank will last s long as 20 years or more.

It is the only storage system that can neutralise itself, by soaking up some of the minerals out of concrete; then it turns into an alkaline state.

Alkaline water, that is cold and not penetrated by light, will not allow bacterial growth, allowing water to stay clean for years. Even when the concrete tank is stored above ground, light cannot reach inside the concrete tanks. That’s why we recommend concrete as the best material for rainwater tanks.
