Timbertank Enterprises Ltd are the only NZ fabricators and installers of base isolated timber barrel water tanks. ACH Consulting have been certifying these tanks and providing engineering support in product development for the last 5 years.

The Timbertank originated in 1972 when company founder, architect Morton Jordan, was required to provide adequate water storage for a beach house project dependant on rain water collection for water supply and where restricted access meant it was not possible to bring in a pre-cast tank. He devised a tank which did not have a solid floor but had a wood stave barrel to support and protect the liner which contained the water and was roofed to protect from contamination and sunlight. Timbertanks natural, eco-friendly timber design blends well into most gardens, and can be stained to match existing landscaping.

The tank excited considerable interest from other property owners and from engineering colleagues who realised the potential of this simple structure. While the original 50,000 litre tank is still in operation, a continuous programme of research and development alongside ACH has seen the Timbertank evolve into large and sophisticated storage tanks with capacities of 3 million litres for community supply.
