Above The Ground & Under Ground Rainwater Tanks

A rainwater tank can be placed anywhere you want them to be, as long as it is conducive to work. The inlet must be just below the gutter if you want to harvest rainwater from the roof. You will find many different forms of the tank that can be placed either on the ground or under it.

While the availability of space is a very important factor to determine the placement of your rainwater tank, which is quite obvious that the above-ground rainwater tank occupies more space than the installed below.  You can also hire professionals for rainwater tank installation service across Australia.

Underground tanks save some space for you and do not get in your way. Underground rainwater tanks require a pump to extract because the unusual placement is an additional expense.

A pump is not a mandatory requirement for the tank installed above ground and allow the good old gravity work magic. Detect malfunctions and leaks are difficult in underground tanks; it is relatively easier in above-ground tanks. In underground tanks, the weather change is no big deal.

When rainwater tanks installed underground, can inhibit the root of the tree structure and also pollute the water, it is quite naturally not be a problem with the above-ground rainwater tank.

You can opt for rainwater tanks that are revealed if they are installed on the ground but not in the installed underground. It is unsafe and at risk of soil, dirt, pesticides enter during rain as surface runoff.

Installation above ground rainwater tank is much easier and does not require excavation as in the case of rainwater tanks attached below. Maintenance poly rainwater tanks on the ground are much easier as well.

Consider all your options before you install rainwater tanks. You also have to choose the type and shape of the tank. You can choose between concrete, steel, glass fiber, wood, and polyethylene (poly) water tank.
