Water Storage Challenges

 In a nation as dry as Australia, rain of any kind is typically a welcome sight, however modern facilities such as roads and footpaths, together with changing climate conditions, can often result in flash flooding as a result of storm water run off, which can cause substantial damage.
A rainwater tank, along with ample guttering can hemp to prevent some of this water from entering streets and stormwater systems, helping reduce the risk of stormwater run off.
If a storm deposits 100mm of rainfall in Lennox Head in a 24 hour period, just 100 dwellings equipped with rain water tanks can keep 2 million litres of water off of roads and storm drains.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Australia is well known for having long hot summers, and if you discount the recognisable outlier in Antarctica, is the driest continent in the world. This, coupled with the life cycle of many native plants, leaves much of New South Wales susceptible to widespread bushfires.
Thankfully, Southern Cross Water are experts in the fire tank industry, with skilled tank crews ready to fit your residential, rural or commercial site with fire protection water storage.
A steel water tank fares better than any other in fire conditions, and crucially is more likely to hold water through a fire front. However if your tank does come close to a fire, it is crucial to have it assessed for water safety before utilising it for household water use.
The Lennox Head climate
A coastal town, Lennox Head is no stranger to severe weather, having experienced bushfires, cyclones and even a small tornado.
While experiencing a good amount of rainfall, Lennox Head boasts sunny beaches for much of the year.
Lennox Head, thanks to its beaches and climate, is an attractive tourist destination, for surfers and families alike.

Over 100 years of experience

Way back in 1871, a Mr George Washington Griffiths established an ironmongery and mechanical repair shop in Toowoomba that would one day become Southern Cross Windmills.

The Toowoomba Foundry produced the first Southern Cross Windmill in 1903, and by the late 1960’s the first bolted steel round water tanks were being produced.
Ever since then, Southern Cross Water has remained committed to providing Australians practical and cost-effective water storage solutions– the fact that several of the original squatter tanks still stand today is evidence of this drive for quality and success.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy
With Southern Cross windmills and water tanks dotted all over this large nation of ours, the Griffiths brothers would surely be proud and impressed of what an icon the little windmill company they built has become.
While over a hundred years have passed, Southern Cross Water Tanks and Southern Cross Windmills are still manufactured in Queensland to this day.
Reliable in a pinch

In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in Queensland suffered a structural failure, causing the tank to flood the nearby Kawana Way with somewhere around two and a half million litres of water, washing away a family vehicle and causing destruction to the surroundings.

The site manager then looked to Southern Cross Water to help build a new pair of tanks on the site, with a much higher level of scrutiny, and the quality of these Southern Cross water tanks have since served to set a benchmark for many commercial projects to this day.
