Water Tanks For Sale

Brief Background

If you are in search of water tanks for sale within the UK market, chances are you are looking for a reliable long-term solution that meets your specific capacity needs. This is where Nicholson Plastics comes in. As a leading brand in the market, manufacturing and supplying cold water storage tanks since 1968. We have a wide range of water tanks for sale that will meet our customer base’s requirements.

This article will discuss the main factors to consider before making a purchase and the different benefits of buying a water tank from Nicholson Plastics.

What to Consider When Looking For Water Tanks For Sale

Nicholson Plastics has a broad range of water tanks for sale, each designed to meet your water storage needs. With vast experience in the industry and extensive product and technical knowledge, our water storage solutions have been the go-to for many industrial and commercial companies. We manufacture, supply and install WRAS Approved water tanks for various organisations, from hospitals, hotels, schools, airports, and football stadiums.

Looking up water tanks for sale can be a complicated task; however, knowing the different factors to consider before making a purchase simplifies the process. Here are two main factors to keep in mind:

1. Water Tank Material

Water tanks for sale are made from different materials, including steel, concrete and plastic. At Nicholson Plastics, our water tanks are manufactured from glass-reinforced plastic (GRP). This GRP material is lightweight and durable, making our tanks ideal for various applications.

Our sectional tanks use UV-stabilised material, and the GRP material has improved resistance to bacterial growth. This makes our tanks suitable for potable water storage. Additionally, our one piece tanks, similar to the sectional tanks, comply with all the relevant British Standards and UK water regulations.

2. Capacity of the Water Tank For Sale

This is a vital consideration because the capacity determines the size of the tank. The size of the tank will also affect where the site crew installs it, and there could be space restrictions in place. Our water tanks for sale range in sizes from 43 to 24,000 litres for our one piece range and can hold up to 2,000,000 litres for our sectional tanks range.

Consider the water’s purpose, how many people will depend on it and the water usage to get a better estimate of the capacity you require. Nicholson Plastics has a useful tank size calculator tool to accurately estimate the tank size to fit your water storage needs.
