For more than 100 years, Southern Cross Water have been offering steel water tanks Laidley residents can put faith in.
Due to many people in Queensland being mindful of their water harvesting and water storage needs, many still turn to a Southern Cross water tank to help meet their needs.
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.
While most people delight in rainfall, thanks to modern infrastructure like roadways and paving, too much rain can cause flash flooding, which may be harmful to homes and the local ecosystem.
If you install a water tank and connect it up to a guttering system, you can help lessen the build up of water from rainwater run off, and minimise the risk of flash flooding.
Regrettably, due to much of Australia’s climate, bushfires are a constant risk in the long, hot summers, and Laidley is no exception. Despite much of the region’s rains coming in the summer months, the lush grasses and hot days can easily result in brushfires.
Southern cross have supplied top quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australians for over half a century, and every tank we build comes with a 30+ year design life.
As specialists in the servicing, setup, design and manufacture of global water storage systems, we take pride in the design and integrity of our fire tanks.
From the inaugural Southern Cross windmill coming off the Toowoomba Foundry line in 1903, and the first Southern Cross Water Tank over 100 years ago, nobody has experience like we do of working with Laidley and Australia’s unique water storage needs.
When the Griffiths family created the Southern Cross brand out of the Toowoomba Foundry, they almost certainly didn’t know that it would continue on to end up being such an iconic Australian brand, still in operation over a century later.
In 2015, a water storage tank at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital sustained 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.
Das Neumann Haus was built by Prussian settler and master carpenter Hermann Neumann in 1860’s. When the Neumann family lived in the area in the family home was regarded as somewhat of a cultural centre, with Mr Neumann selling furniture out of the home, his wife, Annie Neumann, teaching piano and violin, and later his son Alfred forming a club for young men to discuss music and literature.
