How to prepare for the site delivery

Congratulations for purchasing one of Polymaster’s Quality Rainwater Tanks. If this product is installed correctly and regularly maintained, it should give you trouble free service for years to come.
Ensure access
Our tanks can be quite large making the trucks loads very high and long and we take the job of delivering your tank safely very seriously. The clearance required for truck and trailer is 19 metres long, 5 metres high and 3.5m wide/ Ensure there are no low-lying branches or powerlines. Make sure the gate/entrance is wide enough and there is enough turning area for the 19m long truck and trailer (size of a normal roundabout)
View Range Ensure access
Prepare your tank site
The tank site must be firm, level and flat. A well compacted sand base or other consolidated fill such as crushed dust is recommended. This fill must be free of any rocks, stones or any sharp objects. The base must be 75mm – 100mm deep and at least 600mm larger in diameter than the tank base. The outside of the base must be supported by a retaining wall to prevent erosion.
View Range Prepare your tank site
Prepare your overflow pipe
The overflow must be piped well clear of the tank to avoid any undermining of the tank base. Ensure that a flexible hose of at least 300 mm (12”) is installed after the tank valve to absorb any shocks or movement.

Standard Factory Fittings

The overflow, strainer and outlets are installed before your tank leaves the factory.

This saves you money on installation and ensures the tank doesn’t contain any plastic bits (swarfe) that often occurs when fittings are installed on-site and not cleaned before filling with water.

Delivery FAQ's

How do I know when my Rainwater Tank will be delivered?
Our logistics department will be in contact with you 7 days prior to delivery to;
  • confirm your delivery address
  • advising access guidelines for delivery to your property
  • if you will be onsite when the delivery arrives
We can even offer a courtesy call before your delivery.
How many people are required on site for tank delivery?
The good news is that no-one is required to help the driver unload.  Please provide a free and easy access to your site and an identified ‘marked’ area for the tank to be unloaded. Our driver will unload as close as possible your desired location. If the driver deems the desired location to be too difficult to manoeuvre the truck into, the driver will identify a safe and secure place to unload within your property.   Please note: The driver is unable to physically position the tank onto the ‘pad’. Exact positioning of the tank on the pad remains the responsibility of the property owner.
My site isn’t ready, can you store the tank until we are ready?
Yes, we can for a storage fee of $220 inc gst per tank per month.   Normally once the tanks have been made and fitted out according to your specifications it is invoiced and shipped.
What are the unloading procedures for Self-bunded tanks?

Our  1,500ltr to 10,000ltr self-bunded tanks are always despatched on a pallet. This means that they can be unloaded with either a forklift or crane with spreader bar. It’s important that it is only lifted from underneath the tank unless there are purpose-built lift lugs welded on.  For tanks above this size please refer to the lifting plans.

What is the cost to deliver my tank to site?
Polymaster offers free delivery to site in Victoria and parts of South Australia and New South Wales for tanks over 13,000ltr – 50,000ltr tanks (remote areas excluded).
