Water tanks available at Dahlsens

Slimline water tanks

Help your clients save money on their water bills with our range of discreet, slimline rainwater tanks.

Suitable for urban areas, these tanks don’t require a lot of space and can be installed almost anywhere on a residential house block.

Despite their relatively small profile, slimline rainwater tanks can greatly reduce mains pressure by providing an alternate water source for tasks like flushing toilets and watering the garden.

For a discreet way to store rainwater without sacrificing yard space, under deck water tanks are the solution. Say goodbye to water shortage problems and protect the visual lines of your clients home by installing a concealed under deck water tank unit. Under deck water tanks direct rainwater from roof and gutter systems into a convenient, hidden tank.

For clients with extremely limited land space who want to save money on their water bills, underground rainwater tanks are an ideal option. An underground rainwater tank can be installed on very small residential blocks, with one popular placement option being under the driveway.

The harsh Australian climate and its resulting water restrictions can provide a significant challenge for clients, particularly in rural areas.

Round rainwater tanks can also provide a fuss-free smaller rainwater storage solution for urban residential applications.
