Water tanks

200-litre water tanks suitable for garden watering and emergency water supply can be purchased through the Council office at a discounted price.

If you would like to purchase a water tank, you can contact us at enquiries@swdc.govt.nz or on 06 306 9611.

We do not stock the water tanks onsite and can only order the tanks when we have a minimum of 12 orders. Therefore there may be a delay in the tanks being delivered to the Council and available for you to pick up.

  • Cost is $118 per tank (there has been a cost increase and additional freight costs may apply)
  • Measurements: 1100x600mm
  • Easy installation
  • Easy transportation
  • Colours: Dark Green and Birch Grey
  • Food grade, UV resistant plastic
  • All fittings and diverter included
  • 10-year warranty for the tank and 1 year warranty for the diverter kit
  • A 200-litre tank should be sufficient for a small to medium-sized garden. If you have a larger block, consider purchasing a larger tank available at various suppliers around the district.

For the most up to date specifications, see The Tank Guy website.

Need a bigger tank?

SWDC has made arrangements with Farmlands Greytown and The Tank Guy Feilding to offer South Wairarapa ratepayers discounted prices on water tanks.

There are a range of sizes and discounts available, depending on property requirements. To receive a discount, simply quote ‘SWDC’ when ordering.

When choosing the size to purchase, we recommend a 25/30,000 litre tank for larger properties or a 4/5,000 litre tank for smaller properties.

Resource consent would not be required if the water tank was setback in accordance with the District Plan requirements. These setback requirements vary between zones. If you are unsure please email planning@swdc.govt.nz or call with the site address and proposed location. Servicing requirements may be relevant to the building.

If you would like to purchase a tank or discuss details, please call The Tank Guy Feilding on 06 326 8888 or Farmlands Greytown on 06 304 8045.
