With a large range of water tank sizes and styles, there is a tank to fit your water storage needs. From plastic or poly tanks to steel water tanks in both corrugated and slim modular designs, there is a style to suit your home or business.
Stratco poly tanks are produced from a polyethylene that has a food grading and is resistant to harmful ultraviolet rays. Poly rainwater tanks have excellent impact resistance and will not corrode. Manufactured in one piece with a thick wall, using an advanced plastic rotomoulding method to deliver one of the cleanest, strongest and most durable tanks on the market. Stratco poly tank styles include:
- The Aqua-Line, with its modern, contemporary style, smooth surface and attractive strengthening ribs.
- The Aqua-Link, an innovative tank with stylish rounded curves. Aqua-Link is made up of 1100 litre modules that can be linked together.
Steel rainwater tanks produced by Stratco are manufactured to the highest quality standards in a wide range of styles and colours. The Aqua-Barrel, Aqua-Classic and Aqua-Quad are constructed using corrugated Aquaplate® steel. A food grade polymer skin coats the inner surface of Aquaplate steel to provide clean, healthy rainwater and a long useable life. The steel water tank range includes:
- The innovative and cost effective Aqua-Mod. A slim water tank available in a range of sizes. Offered in an un-painted galvanised finish or in a huge range of powder-coated colours.

- Embodying the timeless style of a round water tank, the Aqua-Classic will always be in fashion.
- Offering the style of a round rainwater tank with the maximised use of space a square form provides, the Aqua-Quad is a modern classic.
Rainwater is a valuable natural resource that can be collected as an environmentally responsible way to provide real cost savings to any home or business. Homeowners and urban planning authorities are recognising the benefits of rainwater collection and water storage with new legislation being introduced in many areas.
A rainwater tank can save up to 100,000 litres of water a year in an average home. Collected rainwater can be used to water the garden, wash the car, or as drinking water. With additional plumbing and a pump, a tank can be used to flush the toilet, fill a washing machine, fill a water heater or be used through a cold water tap.
Pumps and Water Tank Accessories
Get the full potential out of your rain water tank with a complete range of pumps and accessories from Stratco. A wide range of pumps are available. The pump you choose will depend on the water tank size, the requirements of the appliance that will feed from the rainwater tank, the diameter of the plumbing pipes and the pressure required.
If you choose to run your appliances solely from tank water, you may need a top-up facility to fill part of the water tank with mains water when the rainwater gets low. When connecting to mains water, a backflow prevention device is needed to prevent the reverse flow of polluted water from contaminating drinking water. Some pumps have backflow and top-up devices built into their design. Stratco can supply separate top-up devices, backflow prevention devices and any pipes and fittings needed to complete the system.

When installing a rainwater tank, never attempt to install a tank to mains water without a qualified plumber.
