Site Preparation Instructions

GPWT Pty Ltd ACN 611 845 660 ABN 52 611 845 660 or its agents do not take any responsibility whatsoever for the preparation of the tank site or the installation of its products. It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser, or their agent to ensure the site has been prepared correctly, in accordance with these instructions and is maintained on an ongoing basis.

The site must be prepared as follows:-

  • Tank site must be level and free of any rocks/stones or foreign objects that may damage base of the tank.
  • Site must be solid. If fill is to be used, ensure tank site is well compacted.
  • Tanks can be positioned on 75-100mm of level bedding sand, crusher dust of FRC, a level concrete slab or a tank stand.
  • Tank pads should be at least 300mm greater in diameter than the tank.
  • Tank pads must be adequately retained to avoid any under tank erosion from wind, water or vermin, such as rabbits.
  • Concrete slabs must be smooth finished and of sufficient thickness and suitably reinforced to support the tanks weight when full.
  • Tank stands should have hardwood decking spaced no greater than 50mm apart.
  • Bearers must have sufficient strength to prevent deflection when tank is full.
  • The tank should not be buried greater than one third of its wall height. If tank is to be partially buried, fill with water prior to back filling, and back fill with clean sand only. Water level in the tank should remain at or above ground level at all times.
  • Tank overflow must be piped well away from the tank to avoid undermining the base.
  • With tank stands, pipes should be supported by the stand, not the tank.
  • In all installations make sure outlet pipes are joined to the tank outlet fitting with a flexible coupling or pipe and properly supported, not depending on the tank walls for stability.
