Concrete Water Storage Tanks

Made-to-order concrete water tanks

Water storage for domestic use, stock or firefighting reserves

Burford have been building custom concrete tanks since 1958 and with years of experience in the industry, we are the leading supplier of concrete water tanks in Southland, Otago and the Southern Lakes.

Features and benefits of concrete water tanks

Burford tanks are made using a superior building process under controlled factory coditions and to an engineers design certificate, giving you a superior customised water storage system you can rely on. 

  • Burford tanks are made with fibre reinforcing in the plaster, ensuring the plaster holds together better and minimises the chance of the tank leaking.
  • Burford tanks can be part buried to clear windows, spouting, and for landscaping purposes. If required, a Burford tank can be completely buried when a specially reinforced concrete roof is cast on the tank in the factory.
  • Concrete tanks don't budge! As concrete tanks are stronger than plastic, they are wind resistant and won't blow away in a storm.
  • Concrete is more dense and therefore stays cooler than plastic, meaning it minimises bacteria growth in your water.
  • Chemicals commonly used in plastic water tanks can leach into your drinking water. This does not occur in concrete tanks.

Burford's have a mobile tank cleaning and repair service to ensure the water in your tank is always safe for your family.
