Frequently asked questions

Do I need a concrete pad for a KlipTank?

No, you don’t. Most of our tanks require a ground bearing of 30kPa unless we specify otherwise. Generally, you would scrape off the grass and topsoil and create a 60mm compacted layer of crusher dust or fines. Specific site preparation requirements may vary depending on the project.

Who can do my site preparation?

You have the option to do it yourself or hire a local contractor. We provide detailed instructions to make the process as easy as possible, and our Installation Manager is available for advice at any time.

Can a KlipTank be used on soft or unstable ground like Peat?

Absolutely. KlipTank specialises in these situations. Our tanks are engineered to withstand subsidence and movement. Please note that customers will need to sign a Waiver at the time of entering into an Agreement, acknowledging the need for extra monitoring and the possibility of additional costs for site preparation and maintenance.

Do we need to get a Building Consent for our KlipTank?

Yes, according to the NZ Building Code, any structure over 1.2m high or holding more than 35,000 litres requires a Building Consent. KlipTank will handle all the paperwork and lodge it on your behalf. We charge a small admin fee for this service and will pass on the Council’s charges at the end of your installation. This process ensures that a certified Engineer signs off on the tank design and conducts site-specific structural calculations for seismic, wind, and snow loadings.

KlipTanks are made from high-quality materials sourced from New Zealand.
