Free-standing plastic water tanks provide the least expensive means of rainwater storage, both in purchase cost and installation cost. They are relatively easy to handle, require little or no excavation, and work with almost any topography.
We carry a full line of Bushman above ground plastic water tanks for rainwater harvesting.
Bushman has been manufacturing high quality rainwater tanks since 1989. Bushman tanks come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles. The features and benefits of Bushman tanks allow you to effectively and economically collect, conserve, store and recycle a great volume of valuable rainwater for a long period of time.
Bushman above ground water tanks are constructed of rotational-molded high quality polyethylene to assure maximum strength and the walls are molded in one piece and horizontal ribs are formed around the tanks to provide extra wall strength. Bushman above ground tanks are offered in capacities ranging from approximately 205 U.S. gallons to over 5000 U.S. gallons. A selection of colors is offered and the tanks are UV stabilized to prevent color fading. Bushman rainwater harvesting tanks are available in slimline, round and low profile configurations.
How Plastic Water Tanks Work
With our above ground plastic tanks water runs through your rain gutter system and is directed into the top of the tank. Before the water enters into the tanks it passes through a screen that filters out any leaves or other debris. Once the tank is full, excess water flows out of the overflow pipe on the side of the tank. This pipe is also protect by a screen to prevent mosquitoes or debris from entering your stored water. To utilize the water that is in the tank you simply connect a garden hose to the output hose bib just as you would to an outside faucet. Above ground plastic tank storage capacity ranges from 205 to 5000 gallons.
