The installation and use of cold water storage cisterns and sectional tanks connected to the public water supply must comply with Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 in England and Wales and the technically identical Scottish Water Byelaws. In order to meet these requirements Fluid Category 5 Break Tanks must be used in this instance. These plastic tanks are currently available in 14 sizes from 300 litres up to 90,000 litres in Vertical and Horizontal options, with an additional option of an insulated jacket fitted at time of manufacture; other sizes are available on request.
Our water tanks are all WRAS approved, DWI approved and meet the specific requirements of Regulation 31.
