Q: In your quotation you write 'construction commensurate with a burial depth of 2 metres in firm soil' …… What does this mean exactly?
A: We are informing you the burial depth can be no more than
the number of metres we mention. In other words, the tank/chamber
cannot be buried any deeper than what has been mentioned in our
quotation. Certain tanks can be buried deeper but in cases like this, a
heavier design will be recommended to you and we will then change the
burial depth that would otherwise be quoted.
Q: How far from the house do we have to stay when installing our water cistern?
A: We recommend a minimum of 1.5 metres from the house
foundation. Our tanks rely on the support of the backfill and we
recommend a minimum of 1 metre for support.
Q: When linking tanks together what is the distance required between tanks?
A: 1 metre between tanks is recommended for support for the tank walls.
Q: When we are preparing the excavation what is required in the bottom of the excavation?
A: To minimize stress on a tank or a chamber it should be
placed on a flat and level base of gravel or crushed stone, minimum 150
mm thick. Soil conditions must be firm and stable. Warranty will be
void if these conditions are not met.
Q: Do you sell plastic tanks?
A: No we are strictly a manufacturer of precast concrete products.
Q: Do you have other locations?
A: We have only one location which is at 588 Hwy #5 in Dundas, ON. (Find Us on Google Maps)
