Stylish water tanks for your garden

Gone are the days when a rainwater tank would take up a lot of space and could be an eye-sore in your backyard. Garantia water tanks offer smaller, decorative options to save water and enhance your garden design. Bunnings Greenlife Buyer Jodie takes us through the range and shares her personal favourite.

Collecting rainwater in style

“There are so many ways to capture water to use in your garden, from large above-ground poly water tanks to underground water tanks,” explains Jodie. “And now it’s possible to conserve water and improve the look of your garden with smaller, decorative options from Garantia.”

By successfully combining form and function, Garantia shifts the focus from water catchment to choosing a working feature for your garden. These water tanks are available in several sizes—from a simple zinc tank at 220L to the 300L 2-in-1 options—with a selection of styles and colours in both wall-mounted and freestanding options.

“My personal favourite is the 2-in-1 Garantia which has a planter in the top,” says Jodie. “You can give it your own decorative flair and fill the top section with your favourite plants.”

Many of the freestanding styles include a planter in the top. They range in shape from elegant columns, to amphora style water vessels—both available in a variety of colours.

The Garantia water tanks are also available in a wall-mounted style that’s not only childproof, but a sleek and modern look that’ll suit smaller gardens.

For example, the 275L terranova wall tank has a width of just 40mm, so it can be placed close to doors without causing an obstruction.

Rainwater tanks you can install yourself

Installing your water tank is as easy as drilling a couple of holes. Just position your Garantia water tank next to a downpipe, plug in a downpipe filter and you’re done. There’s no need to remove or alter the downpipe in any other way.

The downpipe filter directs rainwater into the water tank. Once the tank is full, the downpipe filter allows overflow water to continue on its journey within the downpipe.

Each style of water tank features a high quality brass thread for easy installation of a tap, so you can connect a hose or fill your watering cans and buckets.

Light and easy to set up

“One handy thing with this range is their weight,” notes Jodie. “So they are easy enough to move around and place in your garden.”

All tanks in the Garantia range are constructed from UV stabilised, fully recyclable polymer. The majority of the tanks weigh less than 15kg when empty and range in height from 1m to 1.6m.

“If you’re looking for a new and innovative way to capture and conserve water in your garden while giving it a little decoration then this range is a great choice.”
