Our Story

"ThinTanks™ 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. Hence the name ThinTanks™ The final design decision was to somehow duplicate the appearance of a fence.

The end result was the 1000 Litre ThinTank, with FENCE columns between each tank. Using more than one water tank we have a dividing fence.

Defining the shape, size and appearance was the inspiration of an inventive qualified civil engineer with 50 years experience in plastics and water treatment who is still part of this continuing journey with ThinTanks™ planned expansion.

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

Two years later we were marketing the very successful 1000 Litre ThinTank. This success led to the development of the 2000 Litre ThinTank.

Some two years later in October 2012, the 3000 Litre ThinTank was designed and manufactured to add another fantastic size tank to the range.

In mid 2020, the 4000L ThinTank came into production and whilst it is the biggest tank in the range yet, it is still a slender 75cm wide. This tank completed the range of residential rainwater tanks to meet any residential home need. The 4000L ThinTank was a Silver Winner in Sustainable Living/Residential Sustainable Design at the 2020 International Design Awards in Los Angeles, California.
