Why Choose Pro Plastics?

Why Choose Pro Plastics?

We use the highest quality (food grade) polyethylene resin which contains an Ultra UV (UV24) stabilizer. This ensures that our tanks are built to last in the rugged Australian climate and conditions. We are so confident in our products that we offer a 10 year warranty on all Pro Plastics water tanks.

All of our water tanks also conform to the Australian Standard AS/NZS 4766, a standard developed to ensure that these tanks have been properly designed and manufactured to be fit for purpose for the length of their warranty life. This standard provides independant assurance that our products meet the highest standards.

Excerpt from Victoria Government's "Our Water Our Future" Website:

"Customers considering the purchase of a rainwater tank should be aware that Australian Standards and guidelines apply to the design, material, manufacture and installation of rainwater tanks to ensure the product being purchased offers consumers safety, quality and longevity from their intended purchase.

All polyethylene rainwater tanks should be certified to ASNSZ4766:2006. Tanks certified to this Standard can be clearly identified as the following details must be permanently marked in the external surface of the tank: manufacturer's name; tank capacity; date of manufacture; serial number; and Standard number (ASNZS4766).

Details on the relevant Standards applicable to tanks made for alternative materials can be found in Australian Standards handbook: HB230:2009.

Customer's wishing to claim the National Rainwater and Greywater Initiative rebate for rainwater tanks must purchase tanks made to the relevant Australian Standard."


What does this mean for me?

This means that if you purchase a rain water tank built by manufacturers who do not follow these strict guidelines, you may not be assured of eligibility to claim the National Rainwater and Greywater Initiative rebate. It also means that your rain water tank may not be guaranteed to last in the harsh Australian climate and conditions. Worse still, it may not be safe for you to use on your garden or for other household purposes.

Pro Plastics rain water tanks are independently assessed and approved by Global Mark, ensuring that Pro Plastics meet the stringent criteria required to be certified to the ASNSZ4766:2006 standard. This means that when you purchase your rain water tank from Pro Plastics, you can be assured that your tank is of the highest quality, and conforms to the standards required to claim the government rebate.
