In your quotation you write
'construction commensurate with a burial
depth of 2 metres in firm soil' …… What
does this mean exactly?
We are informing you the burial depth can be
no more than the number of metres we
mention. In other words, the tank/chamber
cannot be buried any deeper than what has
been mentioned in our quotation. Certain
tanks can be buried deeper but in cases like
this, a heavier design will be recommended
to you and we will then change the burial
depth that would otherwise be quoted.
Q: How far
from the house do we have to stay when
installing our water cistern?
We recommend a minimum of 1.5 metres from
the house foundation. Our tanks rely on the
support of the backfill and we recommend a
minimum of 1 metre for support.
linking tanks together what is the distance
required between tanks?
1 metre between tanks is recommended for
support for the tank walls.
Q: When we
are preparing the excavation what is
required in the bottom of the excavation?
To minimize stress on a tank or a chamber it
should be placed on a flat and level base of
gravel or crushed stone, minimum 150 mm
thick. Soil conditions must be firm and
stable. Warranty will be void if these
conditions are not met.
Q: Do you
sell plastic tanks?
No we are strictly a manufacturer of precast
Q: Do you
have other locations?
We have only one location which is at RR#4
