May 21, 2009: An innovative flat-pack steel slim line rainwater tank, AquaClad, has been launched to make saving water easy for any home or property where access is limited.
Created by Waterplex, a company renowned for its creative rainwater solutions, the flat-pack tank comes in a modular design that can be easily carried into a property and assembled on the spot.
As a result, inaccessible areas for rigid tanks such as commercial roof tops or basement areas can now be used for rainwater storage by utilising the AquaClad.
Managing Director of Waterplex, Andrew Waudby said AquaClad was the ideal rainwater solution for urban households.
“Never before have form and function blended together so well – the AquaClad has no round corners, allowing for more rainwater to be stored than in traditional metal slim line tanks, and yet it also solves access issues, and it is aesthetically appealing,” Mr Waudby said.
Available in two convenient heights (1670mm and 880mm), three different widths and nine different lengths, AquaClad is ideal for placement not only at the side or back of terraces and houses, but also in basements, under floors and decks, and in obscure locations.
The AquaClad is also modular in design, allowing for extra length to be added at any given time and is made with no external bolts on walls or panels.
It is lined with Waterplex’s superior Liquidity VLS liner which is made from potable-grade PVC and accredited to the Australian Standard (AS/NZS 4020).This means the water can be safely consumed and is suitable for use inside and outside the home.
Available in the full range of Colourbond colours or natural Zincalume colour, Mr Waudby said: “You can mix and match colours or add our cladding brackets to clad in any number of designer finishes to achieve a personalised designer look with a finish, limited only by your imagination.”
Known for its innovative Eco Sac flexible under house bladder and Reo Sac, a reinforced bladder tank for hidden rainwater, Waterplex has carved a position as Australia’s premier creative rainwater storage solution provider.
Mr Waudby added that AquaClad’s combination of cost and quality in the current economic climate meant its launch was timely.
“In addition, the market is now driven by a legislated need to include rainwater storage in new building and development applications,” commented Mr Waudby.
With a 20-year warranty and available in over 50 sizes, the AquaClad is currently being sold through all leading plumbing merchants from $1164.
