Corrugated steel is the oldest and cheapest form of rainwater tanks. The material is long-lasting and fireproof, and it is recommended for larger-sized rainwater tanks. However, corrugated steel is prone to corrosion so therefore it needs a polyethylene protective lining.
Polyethylene or plastic rainwater tanks are the next cheapest option after corrugated steel. Both materials are light, yet strong and do not rust. These rainwater tanks experience wear when kept in the sun for too long, but not to worry – the materials are recyclable!
Steel-reinforced concrete rainwater tanks are highly durable and not prone to rusting. These tanks are structurally sound for permanent use underground, provided they are placed on a sturdy base that supports their total weight.
Fibreglass tanks are light and non-corrosive. However, their lightweight comes with a downfall; their thin walls allow light to pass through, which can encourage algae growth inside the water. This material can be thought to be the least popular for rainwater tanks.
