Kilkee Delivers To:
New South Wales (selected areas)
Victoria (selected areas)
We do our best to keep delivery times as short as possible, but we will notify you if there will be any delays. Once your order is placed, you will receive notice (1-2 days) before delivery of your tank. If require a longer notice period or if the tank is not immediately required, please advise Kilkee during processing so special arrangements can be made.
OFF ROAD LOCATIONS
If the delivery point is off road, you must inform Kilkee so the appropriate vehicle for the drop can be organised. For delivery around Adelaide local & hill areas, we have a 6 wheel drive vehicle to access some of the more difficult terrain.
If the ground is soft or too wet, Kilkee must be notified prior to delivery so alternate plans can be made.
3,300L – 11,500L = 1 PERSON + DRIVER
When delivering a 3,300L – 11,500L tank, our driver will require help from one other able bodied person22,500L + 24,000L = 3 PERSONS + DRIVER
22,500L + 24,000L = 3 PERSONS + DRIVER
As the tanks are heavy and larger 22,500L & 24,000L tanks will require the help of 3 able bodied people plus the driver for positioning of the tank onto your pre-prepared pad.
SITE PREPARATION (PRIOR TO DELIVERY)
When preparing the site for your new tank, please ensure the area you have selected is suitable. The area must be accessible for the truck to either:
Off –load the tank directly onto the site or
by off-loading the tank from the truck and rolling the tank a short distance into position ( without damage to the tank)
As our truck can be up to 19m long, 3m wide and 4.2m high, please ensure the truck has clear access. Any obstacles need to be cleared eg. cutting back branches prior to delivery.
Please ensure that your new Kilkee tank is secured immediately following delivery. It can be tied down using rope or wire, or water can be added as ballast if the tank is on its base.
In all installations, make sure outlet pipes are well supported and not reliant on the tank walls for stability.
With tanks on stands, pipes should be supported by the stand, not the tank.
A 100mm bed of packing sand is a suitable base. Ensure that the sand is 300mm wider than the base of the tank and that the sad is appropriately retained so that it cannot erode from under that tank. i.e. pipe the overflow away from the tank base.
BURYING YOUR TANK
Your tank can be buried up to 1 meter, but will require:
A 200mm thick sand base and 200mm of sand around the sides for protection ( from rocks and other debris that might be damaging)
The effect of ground water and its ability to push things out of the ground must be considered if burying your tank. Kilkee recommends that you seek the advice of an engineer who will guide you to ensure the longevity and safety of your tank.
When burying it is imperative that you plumb the overflow water away from your tank, so that you do not add to the ground water or undermine the tank.
Kilkee will not be held liable for any damage that may occur to the tank being pushed out of the ground.
OVERFLOW + OUTLET POSITION
Please consider at which point you would like your overflow and outlet positioned (noting position 12 is the inlet)
Round Water Tank Warranty
Our round water tanks come with a 20 year full warranty. This warranty will cover any manufacturing problems in the highly unlikely event that any should arise. This warranty is for the tank only and not the fittings that are supplied. Should an issue occur you will need to contact the agent you purchased the tank through or Kilkee directly. If Kilkee cannot fix the manufacturing defect, Kilkee will replace the tank with a new one.
