Why choose a Grade 304 stainless steel water tank?

Simple. Everyone needs access to safe drinking water. Grade 304 stainless steel is the same grade used in your kitchen sink – so you know it’s designed for safe water storage and provides a reliable way to ensure your water supply. Whether you need a rainwater tank for your home, garden, farm or industrial site, or for commercial use, Stainless Steel Tanks can help.

What is Grade 304 stainless steel?

One of the most common stainless steel alloys in terms of strength and versatility, Grade 304 stainless steel comprises 18 per cent chromium and eight per cent nickel. This combination provides excellent corrosion protection – meaning your water tank withstands rust and your water storage remains uncontaminated.

This in-built anti-rust protection is also non-reactive, making Grade 304 stainless steel water tanks the ideal choice for ongoing safe water storage for a range of applications.

At Stainless Steel Tanks, we know our rainwater tanks are built to last. Stainless steel is not only highly durable, but also 100 per cent recyclable – making it the environmentally friendly choice compared to concrete or plastic tanks.

In fact, we’re so confident in the quality of our tanks we offer our customers a 10-year warranty on stainless steel water tanks.

What can I use Grade 304 stainless steel water tanks for?

Available in 400 litre to 34 000 litre capacity, the Stainless Steel Tanks range provides safe and sustainable water storage for drinking, fire protection, gardening and agriculture.

Grade 304 stainless steel is commonly used in kitchen and food applications, so you can be assured of fresh, uncontaminated water. Our stainless steel water tanks feature a corrugated design and can be customised to fit your specific requirements.

Choose the size and shape that suits your needs, from smaller residential stainless steel rainwater tanks to custom-made, fire-resistant tanks compliant with the Bushfire Management Overlay requirements.

Our Grade 304 stainless steel water tanks come with an overflow, strainer and outlet, and we also have other stainless steel water tank fittings available. The Grade 304 is often used as a rural rainwater tank by various clients across Australia.

Is there anything 304 stainless steel water tanks aren’t suitable for?

While a 304 stainless steel water tank is suitable for most drinking water and water storage needs, it can be susceptible to chloride corrosion. If you live in a coastal area, or require water storage in a marine environment, a Grade 316 stainless steel water tank is the better fit.
