Water Storage

Need water storage for domestic, stock, or firefighting reserves?

Chemicals used in plastic water tanks can leach into your drinking water.

Plastic tanks can blow away in high winds if empty.  Concrete Tanks don’t budge!

Take the risk out of a possible drought next summer by installing a bigger water tank.

Concrete tanks are stronger than plastic, wind resistant, and because they are denser, stay cooler, meaning they minimise bacteria growth.

Burford are the leading supplier of concrete water tanks in Southland, Otago and the Southern Lakes.

We produce nine different sized concrete water tanks from 30,000 litres down to 1,800 litres.

The tanks can be installed to suit the needs of your property, including being completely buried with a reinforced roof to preserve the aesthetic.

Tanks are made-to-order.  Fibre reinforcing is added to the concrete tank to improve strength and durability.  Out-flow sizes can be customised to your exact needs during production.

Burford have been building custom concrete tanks since 1958. 


Your tank is built to a standard, not a price; it stores your drinking water after all!  You don’t want to be replacing the tank in a few years because a weld has split so concrete is the obvious choice

One of the most challenging installations of storage tanks is the Skyline gondola and luge complex in Queenstown. Burford water storage tanks were installed to provide water for firefighting.
