Floodwash Concrete Tanks

Storage for large amounts of water

Floodwash tank solutions can reduce hours of cleaning time

Normally used by New Zealand diary farmers to flood wash their dairy farms, floodwash tanks store a large amount of water, and when the outlet is opened, can release large surges of water very quickly. This approach greatly reduces the amount of effort required to clean the areas that animals frequent, including farm yards, animal feeding areas, and animal movement lanes (often called flush alleys). It’s important that a thorough clean of all areas that animals have used is done regularly, to ensure the areas are sanitary for use.

Burford provides a range of quality, concrete floodwash tanks to farms in Southland, Otago and Canterbury, ranging in size from 13,500 litre, 22,500 litre, 24,750 litre, and 30,000 litre capacities.  Our most popular floodwash tank size is currently 22,500 litres, which is suitable for medium size farms.   

Burford floodwash tanks are manufactured in Winton, Southland. When manufacturing at the Burford factory, any size of pipe outlet can be installed into the floodwash tank. Our tanks are built to provide excellent and fast water flow performance, and are built to appropriate New Zealand standards to ensure a high quality, long lasting product.

Design and installation of concrete floodwash tanks

Burford will work with you to design the best floodwash tank solution for your needs, with an aim to providing a quality flood wash implementation that avoids unnecessary water use. Our tanks can be configured to use fresh water, plate cooler water, or effluent pond water. 

A typical installation will have a large tank placed at the top of the yard slope, so that the water can flow naturally downwards from the tank when released. Sometimes the tank is raised up from the ground level, to provide additional gravitational force – and thus more effective cleaning. You may additionally elect to fit a drain valve for general maintenance.

Burford can arrange delivery of your concrete floodwash tank and work with your farm contractor to install it in the appropriate place. Contact Leigh Burford today for a discussion on how a concrete floodwash tank could benefit your farm.
