Bailey Water Tanks

Bailey Water Tanks are made from tough, lightweight plastic.

Bailey Water Tanks are moulded in tough food grade polyethylene plastic and exceed the New Zealand standard AS/NZS4766 for upright polyethylene water tanks. They won’t crack, fade or rust and their one-piece construction makes them exceptionally strong and easy to clean. They’re also UV-stabilised to withstand the harsh New Zealand sun.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is a Bailey Water Tank safe for drinking water?

Absolutely safe! Polyethylene is food grade approved, and is the same material that is used for water pipes.

No. Many companies use polyethylene for packaging of milk, soft drinks etc. In addition, Bailey Water Tanks are not made from recycled or reconstituted materials that may once have contained harmful chemicals.

Will my water taste tainted?

Over 20 years. All Bailey Tanks are UV stabilised to protect them from the sun and ensure long life. They won’t rot, crack or rust. And since they’re moulded in one piece, there are no joints or weak points where leaks could occur. In addition, the colour is permanently moulded in, so your Bailey Tank will stay looking great.

How long will a Bailey Tank last?

Will algae grow in my water tank?

No. Bailey water tanks are specially designed with water tank grade polyethylene to exclude the light that is necessary for algae growth.

Yes. We have full access to the Bailey range, so if you want your tank located under a deck, against a wall or fence, or hidden completely under ground, there are tanks designed specifically for all of those purposes and more. For more information, download this Application Matrix.
