Trailer Water Tanks – What type do I need?
Trailer water tanks or cartage water tanks are used for transporting water on the road, around site or on-farm. Trailer tanks are available from 200 litres to 13000 litres for mounting on trailers and are generally either available as skid or demount tanks or as trailed tanks on a road or site tow chassis.
Trailer water tanks come in the following versions;
- Horizontal water tanks – up to 13,000 litres – to be mounted onto a trailer or vehicle bed
- Horizontal sump tanks – up to 8,000 litres – ideal for fertiliser as the sump allows easy draining of the liquid in the tank as well as cleaning
- Baffled water tanks – up to 1,000 litres – ideal for window cleaners, valeters or anyone who wants to move water round
- Highway Water Bowsers – up to 2,000 litres – a tank mounted on a chassis – can be fitted with water pumps, dust suppression or pressure washers
- Site Water Bowsers – up to 10,000 litres – a tank mounted on a chassis for non-road use
WRAS Approved Trailer Tanks
These tanks are often used as water tanks and bowsers for events, water tanker hire and dust suppression units. The horizontal plastic tanks are WRAS approved for the storage of drinking water (black, boat blue or natural coloured tanks).
These plastic WRAS and DWI approved trailer tanks meet the specific requirements of Regulation 31. Regulation 31 ensures that water suppliers, when producing and distributing drinking water, only use products and substances that do not cause any detrimental effects on the safety or quality of the drinking water.

These horizontal tanks are designed for the transportation of liquid fertiliser for farmers as well as water. The tanks can take liquids up to 1.5 SG and designed to mount onto straight to flat surfaces using the pin mounting system. When used as sprayer tanks or water bowsers for agricultural sprayers, we can supply with a sprayer Camlock fitting to suit quick connection your sprayer for filling. The optional Ball Baffle System guarantees fluid stability for safer operation, reducing fuel usage and mechanical wear & tear.
