Sturdy Garden Buddy

Product Code: 519-A


This 850lt Water Storage Tank is ideal for collecting rainwater specifically for watering your garden.

The rainwater is collected through a downpipe filter which directs it into the storage tank. The filter also acts as an overflow once the tank becomes full.

The tank is fitted with a 230v (13 amp) Submersible Pump which includes a float switch as standard. The float switch only allows the pump to operate when water is available. The pump comes with a 10m cable which plugs directly into a standard household socket.

It is also possible to fill a watering can through a 3/4” Bib Tap located on the front of the tank.

The rectangular shape of the tank allows it to fit neatly into corners or against walls, causing you the minimum amount of intrusion.

The tank is fitted with a bracket to allow for neat storage of the garden hose when its not in use.

The 8” Lid on top of the tank allows you to inspect the inside of the tank if required. It is recommended that the tank be cleaned out periodically to help prevent any sediment build up.

The 850lt Tank should be completely supported underneath. A concrete base or concrete lintels are ideal and should protrude at least 2 inches past the tank on all sides.

The tank is moulded with integral horizontal strengthening supports. This gives huge strength to the tank.

By interconnecting pipework you can create a bank of storage tanks to meet your capacity requirements.

Our water tanks are available in Ireland and the UK.
