Welcome to Portatank®

Helping you to Save Water

PORTATANK® is a South African designed and manufactured, fully portable water storage solution capable of holding between 800 – 10 000 litres of this precious resource in a quick-to-assemble, disassemble and reassemble, unit.

With a patent having been developed and registered (complete South African patent no: 2018/01068), it is the brain-child of Eastern Cape-based Clayton Heyns, who saw the market desperately needed a portable, easy-to-install water storage tank, particularly given the devastating drought suffered in many parts of South Africa, especially in the Western and Eastern Cape. PORTATANK® has a NATA accreditation.

The greatest advantage of this product is that it can be bought off-the-shelf, easily transported in your passenger vehicle and erected within an hour following the simple instructions included with the unit.
The high-quality PVC bladder that stores the water has been tested by the Australian Water Quality Centre and is found to have no impact on the quality of the water contained therein.
Should you wish to move the Portatank® once it is emptied of water, simply disassemble it, re-locate it to its new position and re-assemble again.
[
The bladder of the Portatank® is completely sealed, thus preventing any leaves or sediment from destroying the quality of the water contained within. The frame supporting the bladder is made using high quality, fully galvanised wire mesh.
Portatank® can be installed in urban and rural areas, and is for home or commercial as well as Agricultural use – Portatank® is for everyone!

Portatank is  cost-effective in comparison with other water storage devices and comes with a 5-year sliding-scale warranty. To move the Portatank, once it is emptied of water, simply disassemble it, re-locate it to its new position and re-assemble again.
