Sustainable water tanks for off-grid living

Posted on April 20, 2020 in News & Projects

People living off grid need access to quality water and our sustainable water tanks are a great storage option for that precious liquid.

Forget mains water supply and electricity from the national grid if you’re taking the stand-alone approach. The same goes with reticulated natural gas. You need to do your homework and find alternatives to make your household work effectively off grid. That means it’s time to harness the sun’s energy and harvest rain.

At Stainless Steel Tanks, our experienced team knows just how crucial sustainable water tanks can be to such a lifestyle. And our range of stainless steel tanks are the perfect option when it comes to durable, safe water storage.

Sustainable tank choice

What makes stainless steel such a great off-grid option for storing water? Firstly, the composition of our Grade 304 and 316 stainless steel provides excellent protection against rust and corrosion. This means water remains uncontaminated, keeping supply safe for human consumption.

Our tanks are also 100 per cent recyclable, extremely durable and available in a wide range of capacities right up to 34,000 litres. There’s also the added bonus of fire resistance, which takes on increased importance for people living off grid in rural and regional areas.

Whether you harvest rain from your home’s roof or nearby sheds, diverting it into sustainable water tanks allows you to draw on that supply for drinking and household use. Perhaps you’ll use rainwater for your garden too, or for stock watering.

There is a growing interest in the off-grid lifestyle across Australia. Events such as an annual Off-Grid Living Festival in Eldorado, Victoria, have attracted strong interest in recent years as people hunt for a simpler, more sustainable way of life.

Our recyclable tanks offer a reliable, sustainable alternative to plastic water tanks. They store fresh, clean drinking water that’s free of fluoride, chlorine and harmful chemicals. Put simply, they’re a great fit people wanting to reduce their carbon footprint with an off-grid lifestyle.
