Texas Water Tanks

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

Residents of Texas can be comfortable knowing that they have the backing of one of Australia’s most iconic companies when it comes to water storage and water solutions.
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.
Texas shares its name with the locale along the border with New South Wales, also being known as the Texas Pastoral Run

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

Despite many people still delighting in rainfall, due to modern infrastructure, like bitumen and concrete, large amounts of rain can build up, causing flash flooding, which can cause damage to homes and the environment.

By attaching a roof gutter system, and connecting it up to a rainwater tank, you can help prevent large amount of storm water run-off and lessen the likelihood of flash flooding.
Like many towns in the area, Texas is currently suffering drought conditions due to much of its rain coming in large downpours, doing little to soak into the soil and fill up creeks and waterways.
Bushfires and the Australian Summer
Due to Australia’s climate of long hot summers, bushfires are a constant risk, and Texas is no different. Despite having much of the rainfall coming in the summer months, this can result in longer grasses which easily catch alight.

Fortunately, Southern Cross are the fire tank specialists, and can fit your home or industrial space with a fire tank to offer protection to your property at the time of wildfires.
After a bushfire passes through your property, Southern Cross recommends that you have your water tank checked for water safety if you’re going to continue using it for houesehold water. It will remain safe for fire protection or gardening.
The Texas climate
Like much of the surrounding area, Texas has a humid subtropical climate, meaning that it has humid, hot summers, and cool.

Due to its distance inland, Texas does not receive a large amount of rainfall, coming in at around 660mm a year, with a majority of this falling in the summer months.
Like much of its namesake on the Texas Pastoral Run, much of the Texas area is used for the grazing of sheep and cattle.

Over 100 years of experience
The first Southern Cross windmill was produced in the Toowoomba Foundry in 1903, and not far behind was the first Southern Cross water tank, meaning nobody knows the unique storage needs of Texas and Australia like our people do.

In the late 60’s, we built the first Bolted Steel Round Water Tank, and have embraced over half a centuty of innovation and improvement since then.
When Squatter Tanks were introduced to Australia, it provided people with a reliable and economical way of storing large amounds of water, and several of these tanks still remain to this day.
As Aussie as a meat pie at the footy
When the first Southern Cross windmill rolled out of the Toowoomba Foundry over an a century ago, there was no chance the Griffiths family expected the brand to grow to emerge as an Australian icon, and still operating in the 21st century.

As an Australian owned brand who still operate out of Loganholme to this day, Southern Cross is proud to help all manner of Australians with their water storage needs, from farms and irrigators to commercial sites and mine projects.
Reliable in a pinch
When a water tank built by one of our competitors at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital suffered structural failure in 2015, the tank burst, flooding Kawana Way with approximately two and a half million litres of water, resulting in damaging flooding, and even sweeping away a family vehicle.

After this, the site developer contacted Southern Cross to engineer and build two new tanks for the site, and the quality of these tanks have become a benchmark for many commercial projects from that point to comply with.

Texas Fact

Former winner of the Aria for Best Country Album, James Blundell, had a song titled Texas on his first full length album, as a tribute to the time he spent in the area.

Lee Kernagan and Jason Lee Wilson also referenced the town in releases of their own.
