Are you planning on installing a water tank on your property, but haven’t considered the benefits of a precast concrete option? If so, this is the article for you.
Here we’ll focus on the advantages of installing a precast concrete water tank – both in comparison to plastic water tanks and poured concrete water tanks. We’ll also discuss when you should contact our expert team at Specialty Precast for assistance.
Advantages of a Precast Concrete Water Tank
The benefits of precast concrete water tanks for your home or office are almost innumerable. In this section, we’ll break down some of the most common reasons people opt for this solution.
As a man-made manufactured concrete, precast concrete water tanks are a lot more durable than those made with poured concrete. And they are especially more durable than plastic or PVC versions.
Even water tanks made from poured concrete will deteriorate sooner than those constructed with precast materials.
This is because the construction quality isn’t quite as high and there will often be unavoidable gaps in the poured concrete. Of course, this doesn’t happen with the precast concrete options we have available, and what’s more, it’s less likely to rust or deteriorate in other ways.
Even with the recent fluctuation in the construction industry, precast concrete is still thought to be a much more cost-effective option than its plastic or poured concrete counterparts. This is especially the case when you consider the amount you’ll be saving on reduced maintenance costs.
Research suggests that rainwater stored in tanks made of precast concrete – as opposed to plastic or poured concrete – is more hygienic. This is because precast concrete tanks are better at keeping out pollution, which means the water is cleaner for you to drink.
Improved Temperature Control
Concrete is great for maintaining temperature control. So the water that is stored in a precast concrete water tank is a lot cooler than plastic (or poured concrete, for that matter).
Easy Installation & Quick Delivery
One of the biggest benefits of precast concrete is its ease of installation, and our water tanks are no exception to that. And because they’re made in moulds, the project is complete from start to finish a lot sooner than other options on the market.
Customisable, Aesthetically Pleasing Designs
Plastic or even poured concrete water tanks usually only come in a range of sizes and capacity levels. This is not the case when you choose a precast concrete water tank, because your dimensions, capacity level, colour and so much more is completely customisable to your specific needs.
