Effective water storage solutions

Effective water storage solutions

With crippling water shortages an increasingly harsh reality in South

Africa, and no long-term relief in sight, water security is fast becoming an essential element of any new residential or industrial development.


Building on 14 years’ experience in the storage industry, Eco Tanks offers home and commercial users a wide range of effective water storage solutions as part of their wider water management initiatives. And such is their confidence in the quality and durability of their products that Eco Tanks is the first and only manufacturer in South Africa offering a full replacement value, 10-year guarantee on all its tanks.


‘We invest heavily in innovation and are continuously improving our manufacturing and moulding processes,’ says Eco Tanks co-founder, Darren Hanner. ‘This gives us the utmost confidence in our products, and allows us to pass on that peace of mind to our customers by guaranteeing both our quality and our workmanship.’

All Eco Tanks feature food-grade black liners, are completely BPA free and therefore safe to store drinking water.

Eco Tanks’ commitment to innovation is accredited by Agremént South Africa and the company is a full member of the Association of Roto Moulders of South Africa (ARMSA), where it is actively working to ensure sustainability of its industry. It was one of the first roto moulders in the country to achieve SANS 1731 accreditation and remain the first and only national roto moulder in South Africa with full ISO 9001 accreditation, a sought-after acknowledgement offering its customers products and services of consistently good quality. ‘One of the reasons we are able to offer across-theboard quality guarantees – a first in our industry – is because our plants use some of the most modern and advanced machinery in the country,’ Darren says. ‘Added to this, our in-house laboratory ensures that all products are continuously tested and held to the most stringent quality standards. As a result, our quality assurance is absolute.’ Despite stringent competition in an increasingly competitive market, Eco Tanks has enjoyed rapid and sustained success over the past 14 years.


From a single factory in East London, the company has had to expand repeatedly to keep up with demand and currently operates four fully-fledged production facilities in four provinces: the Eastern Cape,

KwaZulu-Natal, Gauteng and, most recently, the Western Cape. ‘Our new factory in Cape Town is an important milestone for the company,’ Darren says. ‘Not only does it extend our footprint into the Western Cape, an important market for us, but it will also allow us to increase our production in the Cape three-fold, with extra manufacturing capacity being added now.’ With water restrictions affecting virtually every community throughout South Africa, all consumers – domestic, commercial and industrial – must look seriously at rain harvesting. ‘At Eco Tanks, we are exceptionally proud of the fact that the cost-effectiveness of our products, coupled with our quality guarantees and excellent after-sale service, is making it easy and affordable for people to make water storage part of their water management plans at home and at work,’ says Darren.
