Gravel Water Tank

Having an underground gravel water tank is a great way to store water and not damage your pool

We get a lot of inquiry with clients that wish to turn there pool into a gravel water tank and harness there down pipe water but don't quite have the budget for our modular tank system. So we ran a few ideas past the engineer and had our gravel water tank designed.

In brief...We wanted to have an option for our clients that allowed the pool to still hold water and be excessable through a vertical inspection pipe,we then install a submersible pump and Bingo we have a tank.

Testimonials - What Others Are Saying About Us.

Lee Thank you very much for solving our pool problems once and for all,and for your friendly and professional approach at all times. While our pool looked very attractive ,the costs in power,chemicals,our precious time and energy to maintain it,had become a major problem. In addition the costs of meeting new fencing laws with the necessary damage and removal of our picturesque gardens to meet these laws,turned the problem into a nightmare. For over a year we had asked around trying to find an answer . Luckily our pool shop person gave us your number and within a week you visited and came up with the best and least expensive option-to convert our pool liability into a useful asset, namely a gravel tank . You did this in less than 3 days including the turfing on the tank area and the resurfacing of the surrounding areas affected by the machinery used and truck loads of gravel and soil. Our neighbours have since commented on how quickly and well done this was. We were also impressed to see that all your pool conversion options have been properly engineered to ensure that they work without future problems. We have now planted a flower bed inside the old pool rim and placed a bird bath on the turf. This together with the boulders and shrubbery on the far edge of the old pool have created a landscaped garden feature. Just as appealing as the old pool at its best,but without all the worries and costs that came with it. YES it was a bit daunting to see the first load of gravel going into the pool but there was never any doubt that this was the right decision. We recommend you and your team to anyone with similar problems. Thank you!

Can the water be used for indoor use?

water-trees

NO, This tank is set up for outdoor use only

One of the reasons we use a submersible pump to draw water out of the inspection pipe is that any fine dust etc can pass straight through the pump and we don't recommend that the water be used for human consumption and only to be used for watering purposes.
