If you’re in the market for a concrete tank, you want to make sure you’re investing in a quality product. These sturdy, onsite storage solutions should be the right fit for your property now, and well into the future.

Proven to keep water cool and free from algae and disease, concrete tanks offer a range of uses, especially as storage containers for potable and raw water. They can even be placed underground, providing stable water temperatures, and reducing rainwater acidity. But no matter what you’re using it for, a concrete tank should be an investment, not an impulse purchase.

This is why it’s important to work with a team of experts who can guide you through the process from start to finish. There is nothing worse than installing a poor quality concrete tank, because, unlike other pieces of equipment, you can’t just take it back to the shop and swap it for something else.

As someone who grew up in country Victoria, Terry Miller of Terry Miller Concrete Tanks understands the importance of quality water storage systems. Based in Wodonga, on the Victorian side of the New South Wales border, Terry Miller works with clients who are located across the entire east coast of Australia, including commercial enterprises, small businesses, and individual land owners.

Given their experience in working with a wide range of industries, and individuals, Terry Miller Concrete Tanks are able to guide customers on the best choice to suit their needs, and the size of their property. Speaking to their ability to tailor solutions to suit each client, manager Carol Freedman said that the consultancy process was absolutely a part of what they have to offer.

“For domestic customers who are on hobby farms, with no access to town water, I always suggest a tank that holds 100,000 litres at least. Farmers always go for the bigger tanks, and our suggestions for industry and commercial clients depend on what the tanks will be used for,” Carol said.

In recent years, the business of building concrete tanks has expanded from working mostly with commercial businesses and farmers, to liaising with homeowners closer to town.

“We also build tanks for domestic customers on house blocks in inner city Sydney and Melbourne. These customers are sick of paying [expensive] water bills, and enjoy the luxury of having their own water supply,” Carol said.

Committed to using the best quality raw materials of concrete and mesh, Terry Miller and his team of experts are driven by their desire to provide customers with suitable solutions that are built to last, proof of which can be found in their process.

While other companies use concrete blocks to hold up the inner framework of their tanks, creating cold joins that could lead to future leaks, Terry Miller concrete tanks feature superior inner formworks supported by wooden blocks which are removed as the concrete is poured. This method allows for a perfect seal between the floor and walls, ensuring your tank is structurally sound. Terry Miller have a few more expert methods in their skillset, too.

“To improve the strength of the concrete, we use plasticiser and 40mpa concrete, as well as waterproofing. We also use proper tank mesh, designed specifically for concrete tanks, which we source from Smorgans ARC. In addition, we use brass and stainless steel fittings in all of our tanks,” Carol said.

Not only will a well-made concrete tank provide you with a sturdy storage solution, it will also add a lot of value to your property. They can even be placed underground with a concrete top, providing stable water temperatures, and reducing rainwater acidity. If you work with the right supplier, your tank will last a lifetime. Just as long as you remember a few important things, as Carol rightly reminds us.

“A concrete water tank should have a solid foundation, plenty of steel reinforcement, high strength concrete with waterproofing, and be vibrated properly. You should also work with a company that stands by their product, with a team that is there to offer assistance and help when needed,” Carol says.

On board to help you every step of the way, from talking through your specific needs, to the installation at your property, the team at Terry Miller will make your journey to concrete tank ownership totally stress free, ensuring that you get value for money in every tank that you purchase and install.
