Rainwater tank design

With the dry conditions intensifying in Australia, the use of water tanks is in high demand in this country. This project consisted on the design of a water tank that could be manufactured in the largest blow moulding machine at Willow Ware. The maximum capacity available for the new product was 170 L due to the size and capacity of the machine.

The new design makes use of a standard grid to avoid dirt, leaves and rubbish getting into the tank. The side panels incorporate 2 wavy looking ribs to provide structure to the product when the tank is full of water. The new design is a low cost DIY modular system that can be interconnected together to increase the system capacity.
