Water Tanks

We have over two decades of experience in manufacturing water tanks, and offer capacities from 1,350 litres to 20,000 litres that can be used for domestic, agricultural, and industrial markets, amongst others. A wide range of plastic water storage tanks up to 20,000 litres are available.

Water Tanks Information

Specialising in purely above-the-ground solutions, our plastic water storage tanks are rotationally moulded as a one-piece tank which reduces the risk of leakage through fastenings. Capacities range from 1350 to 20,000 litres. All tanks come complete with ventilation, with an access point sited on top of the water storage tank itself.

 

Tuffa is committed to providing the best options for every situation, whether domestic, commercial or agricultural. Our sales team is available to discuss your specific requirements with you to ensure you get the right tank for your needs.
