When buying a water tank it is important to compare what tank fittings and accessories are included.
Tank manufacturers normally include as a minimum an outlet fitting and ball valve, a tank inlet strainer and overflow fitting. Other tank accessories may include a tap valve for hose watering, rain heads, first flush water diverters, strainer covers/light guards, mosquito-proof outlet screens and tank gauges to name a few.
The default tank inlet size, overflow and outlet fittings can vary in size from one manufacturer to the next. Typically, tank inlet sizes are 400mm, tank overflow pipes are 90mm size (upgradable to 100mm) and outlet valve fittings are 1″ (25mm). These sizes generally suit most residential and domestic purposes.
