Municipalities in South Africa are recognising the benefits of modular steel panel water tanks
as a solution for the storage of bulk drinking water supplies, waste water and effluent at
community level. This is especially true in rural areas, where access to clean and safe
drinking water and effluent processing systems can be a challenge.
Steel panel water tanks provide a number of benefits over other types of water storage
solutions. They are quick to install, durable, easy to maintain, and can be designed to hold
specific water capacities. Additionally, steel water tanks fitted with an internal potable water
liner are not susceptible to leaks or cracks, and by storing the water within the liner,
maintains water quality. With a reliable water storage solution, municipalities can meet the
daily needs of their communities and help ensure their health and well-being.
