.... I have another question!!!
we have 3 promax corrugated water tanks.
Has anyone every had any issues with putting them 1000m in the ground? (our plumber is recommending that we don't bury them, but others suggest its fine, and we'd like them as 'out of the way' as much as possible)
Thanks again!

1000m might be a bit deep? I think the main issue would be finding someone who could dig a 1km hole . . .

hehe i presume you mean 1m?
I would contact the manufacturer, they will be able to tell you definitively the answer to that question.
I presume that your plumber says not to incase there is ever a problem with a fitting or pipe, makes access much harder.
Most people I know who don't want to "see" their water tank put a screen up with some plantings.

We have corrugated water in most of our streams. It's special, but quite common. When you put it in a tank, you have to add wobbly sides, otherwise it straightens out and becomes ordinary.

Aha, we only have corrugated water in our stream when it is in flood, perhaps I should harvest it.

Karen, not all tanks are built the same. unless a tank is built to be used as an underground storage, then it probably is not suited to sustain the added pressure of the earth around and over it and will cave in the first time it's empty. Promax has a special model for inground storage, and it's not the corrugate one.
