When buying a water tank many compare the prices of various tank brands, but you should also pay attention to what tank fittings and accessories are included.

Many suppliers will include brass fittings (for connecting a valve), inlet strainer (on top of tank) and meshed overflow piece. Other tank accessories can include taps and ball valves, “tank water” signs, water diverters, rain heads (aka leaf eaters), strainer cover, strainer light guards/filters, water tank guages, gutter guards and your actual PVC piping.

Strainers and fittings also come in different sizes depending on the size of your tank and plumbing needs. For strainers, 400–500mm is fairly standard while outlets come in 1″ (25mm), 1.25″ (32mm), 1.5″ (35mm) and higher. Most manufacturers have their own default sizings, so if you know you will need specific sizes it is important to advise of this upfront.

If you want to save a few dollars, many extra tank accessories can often be picked up from super stores like Bunnings at cheaper price than what suppliers can provide.
