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.

Council aims to have tanks available at all times, however if there is high demand or manufacturing delays, you may be added to a waiting list.

Need a bigger tank?

If you require a larger tank, talk to one of your local farming specialists.

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.
