Questions and answers.

Q. How do I go about checking your prices and what is included?

A. At the top of each page on this site are some drop down menus. Click on the menu for Price lists.

Q. How do I know that you are a legitimate agent for these manufacturers?

A. Make a telephone call to either Bushmans on 1800008888 or Downpour on 1300664148 and ask if David Stanton is an agent for their companies.

Q. How do I place an order?

A. Click on the green order box at the top of the page and follow the instructions.

Q. Can I pay by credit card?

A. Yes, I accept credit card payments.

Q. Is there any warranty?

A. Yes, all tanks come with a 10 year manufacturers warranty. Pumps come with a 1 year manufacturers warranty.

Q. Why are round tanks cheaper than slim tanks?

A. Round tanks hold their own shape naturally as they are a cylinder. Slim tanks need internal reinforcing to maintain an oblong or oval shape which requires a lot more materials to produce them.

Q. Can I pick the tank up myself and save on delivery fees?

A. No. Delivery is built into the pricing structure. The manufacturer will call you to arrange a day that is mutually convenient for a delivery date.

Q. What comes with the tank as standard when I purchase through you?

A. Both manufacturers supply a 25mm brass outlet, 25mm gate valve or ball valve or tap, leaf filter for the inlet and overflow fitting with mosquito gauze.

Q. What are the differences between polyethylene and fibre reinforced tanks?

A. They both have their individual strengths. Polyethylene tanks are more flexible allowing them to be placed on a level compacted earth surface. Fibre reinforced tanks have a higher resistance to heat than polyethylene. Both types of tanks would ideally be placed on a concrete slab.

Q. What colours are available?

A. Bushmans offer 10 standard colours and Downpour offer 26 standard colours. It may seem that Downpour are offering more choice, and indeed they are but some people like to have a more limited choice as Bushmans offer, making a colour selection less involved.

Q. Do Local Councils have rules regarding instalation of water tanks?

A. Yes, click here to look at Blue Mountains City Council's rules as an example.


Note, if you are installing a tank due to BASIX or a local government requirement, you may not be eligible for rebates or grants. Please check with your water supplier and authorities.
