Panel tank with metal roof

Hydrex®  panel reservoirs offer long-term water storage solutions. The panel reservoir is constructed using steel bolt-together type frames that are cladded with galvanised sheets. Panel reservoirs have the highest structural weight ratio when compared to other reservoirs, thus giving the reservoir the rigidity to be either free standing or to be fitted with a trussed and cladded metal roof.  The reservoir can be fitted with grey, black or blue lining. Depending on the application, our PVC liners are available in 600, 750 and 1000 micron. We also stock and can provide chemically resistant speciality liners for the storage of abrasive liquids and certain petro chemicals. These reservoirs are available in various heights and configurations with storage capacities ranging from 5100 litres through to 3 million litres.

Mesh reservoir with umbreall roof

Hydrex®  mesh reservoirs offer exceptional value water storage solutions. The mesh reservoir is constructed using a specially designed galvanised mesh. The Hydrex®  mesh reservoir comes standard with a high density polyethylene wall protector that gives the liner UV and scuff protection. It further adds to the rigidity of the mesh reservoir range. The mesh reservoir also offers the most affordable water storage solution when compared to any other reservoir type, both in terms of cost, installation and life span.

Pressed steel tank
Water towers pressed steel tanks


Hydrex® pressed steel plate tanks offer heavy duty long term water storage solutions. These tanks can be assembled at ground level or they can be elevated on structural steel towers. Pressed steel tanks that are raised above the ground have the “tank stand” as an integral part of the design. Hence there is no separate platform on which the tank is mounted.  Hydrex® modular pressed steel tanks are suitable for the storage of medium and high water volumes, and can be tailor made to suite various industrial, municipal, fire fighting and other high volume water applications. No inner containment membrane is used in conjunction with the pressed steel panel. The panels are bolted together and are brased from the inside. All pressed steel panels are hot dipped galvanised – hence corrosion resistant, making this product particularly durable and suitable for storage of potable water.

Hydrex – S Tank or Onion tank


S tanks or onion tanks as they are often called, offer convenient short term, rapid deployment water storage solutions. They are often used by the military for camp based water storage solutions together with water bladders. Pool maintenance companies also find the products useful while doing maintenance on existing swimming pools without wasting all the available water. S tanks or Onion tanks have a higher fill capacity compared to bladders. This gives them a smaller storage footprint that is often required for storage in urban areas.
