Inglewood Water Tanks

At Southern Cross we’ve been building and designing steel water tanks Inglewood residents can rely on for over a century.

Inglewood locals know that they have the backing and support of one of the most iconic names in Australian water storage and water solutions.
Many Queensland residents still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their water storage needs, because they are mindful of their water storage requirements, and reliability.
Inglewood was founded nearby to Lake Coolmunda, a spot now popular for water skiing, sailing and canoeing.

Water Tank Sizes

With a range of tank sizes from 26kL – 600kL in our rural tanks, and from 12kL – 1900kL in our commercial tanks (with sizes outside this range available on request) you can rest assured that we have the right size tank to suit your water storage needs.

All Southern Cross Tanks can come in either standard ZINCALUME ® Galvanised Steel, or any of the following colours, which would be factory applied to the external wall sheets prior to shipping.
 

Water Storage Challenges

While rain is appreciated in many areas across Queensland, excessive rain in a short period of time can build up on roads and paving, triggering flash flooding, which can harm dwellings, property, and the local ecosystem.

Installing a rainwater tank, with a connected roof gutter system can help in reducing the amount of rainwater run-off and help reduce the likelihood of flash flooding.
In 2013 the Calgary floods forced Inglewood to be evacuated, as water levels in the area reached dangerous heights. Due to its position downstream of the Macintyre and Weir Rivers, Inglewood is always a small risk of water run off.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Sadly the long hot summers in Inglewood leave it, like much of Australia, susceptible to extensive bushfires. Despite the fact that much of Inglewood’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often leads to long grasses which burn easily.

Southern Cross Water are specialists when it involves fire tanks, and can install a fire tank for your home or industrial space to help defend your property in the event of bushfire.
After a bushfire it is advised to get your water checked for safety if you’re going to be using it for potable or drinking water. However it will still be safe to use for watering the garden or fire security.
The Inglewood climate
Like much of the surrounding area, Inglewood has a humid subtropical climate, meaning that it has humid, warm summers, and cool to mild winters.

Due to its distance inland, Inglewood does not receive a large amount of rainfall, coming in at around 580mm a year, with more than half of this falling between November and February.
Sheep and cattle raising remain prevalent in the area, however olive growing is steadily taking over from Inglewood’s once strong Tobacco growing business.

Over 100 years of experience
Over a century ago, the first Southern Cross water tank was manufactured by the Griffiths family, after they had experienced success with their Southern Cross windmills in 1903. This gives Southern Cross unique perspective and experience in dealing with Australian and Inglewood’s water storage requirements.

In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have welcomed over half a century of innovation and development since then.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it equipped individuals with an effective and affordable way of storing large amounts of water, and several of these tanks still remain to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy
When the Southern Cross brand was born of the Toowoomba Foundry, there was no little chance the Griffiths family could have foreseen the brand going on the become an iconic Australian company, still operation over a hundred years later.

Southern Cross is an Australian owned brand, and we still operate out of Loganholme to this day, servicing Australians from all walks of life, from rural families, to irrigators, to business on industrial sites– even educational institutions.
Reliable in a pinch
In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered a structiral 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 car and causing damage to the surroundings.

In the wake of the disaster, the developer of the University Hospital site enlisted Southern Cross to engineer and manufacture two new water storage tanks for the site, and the high standard engineering for those tanks has since become a standard for future commercial projects to comply to.

Inglewood Fact

English botanist and explorer Allan Cunningham has been credited with being the first European to discover the Inglewood area. He passed through east of the present township in May 1827. The first settlement in the area was known as Browns Inn and was an important watering point for bullock teams moving west. The inn opened in the late 1850s on the south side of Macintyre Brook.
