Frequently Asked Questions

Q: In your quotation you write 'construction commensurate with a burial depth of 2 metres in firm soil'... What does this mean exactly?
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?
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?
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?
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?
No we are strictly a manufacturer of precast concrete products.
Q: Do you have other locations?
We have only one location which is at 588 Hwy #5 in Dundas, ON. (Find Us on Google Maps)
