Steel water tanks designed for the Sydney Market
Sydney is Australia’s premier city. Spanning across 26 square kilometres, it is Australia’s highest populated city. Coast and Country have been supplying water tanks to the building industry for over 15 years – playing a part in the massive growth we’ve seen Sydney undertake over that time.
Do people buy water tanks in Sydney?
Sydney’s demand for water tanks is powered almost exclusively by BASIX requirements thanks to all the new dwellings being built throughout the region. Due to Sydney's continuous population growth - the need for rainwater harvesting has increased at a steady rate.

“I have worked with Coast & Country tanks on a few residential and rural residential projects over the years. Project requirements include supply of rural Water Storage Tanks and fittings, and supply of residential BASIX compliant OSD tanks, including rains to mains pump system. Coast & Country have been helpful with design, professional on all levels and the tanks are of quality construction. I would recommend Coast & Country to anybody in need of a water tank.”Jason Bomski Building

Common applications for water tanks in Sydney
Sydney is one of the largest contributors to the building industry - creating massive demand for BASIX-focused products.
In NSW, all new dwellings are required to meet certain standards to help improve sustainability across the state via the building industry. BASIX (or Building Sustainability Index) is a scheme introduced by the government of New South Wales to regulate the energy efficiency of residential buildings. One of the most cost-effective methods of satisfying BASIX requirements is having a rainwater tank. Rainwater can safely be used for toilets and laundry - reducing household water consumption significantly.
Water tanks for bush fire-prone areas
The outer regions of Sydney are vulnerable to bush-fire conditions and often need BAL rated rainwater tanks. We are well positioned to supply the region with a high quality, steel rainwater tank.
On-site detention water tanks
You will typically require an OSD tank during a knock-down/rebuild where the roof of the new structure is larger than the original or if local stormwater systems are not being upgraded - although new structures are being built nearby.
This places more pressure on the established stormwater systems - increasing the chances of flooding. OSD tanks are a cost-effective method of reducing this pressure. They are also common when a lot of new units or projects are being built in an established area. OSD tanks will slowly release captured water into the stormwater systems. You can even have a combination detention/reuse tank and keep some of the water for yourself.
This type of water tank is often required by the local councils.
Investing in a rainwater tank allows you to choose what you use your own harvested water for. If water restrictions are in place you may be stopped from watering your lawn or washing your car. However, if you have a rainwater tank (that isn't connected to mains water) you are free to use the water however you'd like.
