Thin Tanks is about innovation, research and development.

The thought of having to install a circular rainwater tank in the backyard of a modern home led to the conclusion there was a need for a more environmentally appealing solution.

The obvious answer was to make a rainwater tank that looked like a fence. Once the decision was made, it automatically followed that the tank is made as thin as possible.

Thin Tanks complies with AS/NZ 4766-2006 from a structural perspective.

Hence the name Thin Tanks

The design decision was to somehow duplicate the appearance of a fence. The result was the 1000 Litre Thin Tank with fence columns between each tank using more than one water tank as a dividing fence. Defining the shape, size and appearance was the vision of an inventive qualified civil engineer, Peter Snelling, with 50 years experience in plastics and water treatment, who has been a part of, and an inspiration to this continuing innovation of Thin Tanks.

Designing and manufacturing the product to meet these criteria required far more technical inspiration, time and financial commitment.

In 2007 the successful 1000 Litre Thin Tank was launched into the Australian market. This success led to the development of the 2,000 Litre Thin Tank which has become the most popular size among the range.

  • In October 2012 the 3,000 Litre was designed, manufactured and launched to add another fantastic size tank.
  • In 2016 the 3,000 & 5,000 Litre Thin Tanks were designed for NZ.
  • In 2020 the 4,000 Litre Thin Tank came into production to meet the needs of the ever-growing regulatory demand for residential rainwater tanks to meet any residential home need. It is still a slender 750mm wide and the Silver Winner in
    (Sustainable Living/Residential Sustainable Design at the 2020 International Design Awards in Los Angeles, California)

Our latest Thin Tank is a 500 Litre which is a new good seller, fitting under a standard size window and easily transported in the back of a ute.
