For over a hundred years, Southern Cross have been designing and building water tanks Yarrabilba residents can trust.
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.
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 moderate the risk of flash flooding.
Unfortunately the long hot summers in Yarrabilba leave it, like much of Australia, vulnerable to widespread bushfires. Even with the fact that much of Yarrabilba’s rainfall comes in the warmer months, this often results in long grasses which burn easily.
Yarrabilba, like much of the Brisbane and Logan City area, is home to a humid subtropical climate, making it an attractive place to live for many families.
For over fifty years, Southern Cross has been providing high top quality steel bolted storage tanks to Australians, and all of our tanks have a 30+ year design life.
As specialists in the servicing, installation, design and manufacture of worldwide water storage systems, we take pride in the design and integrity of our fire tanks.
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 expertise in dealing with Australian and Yarrabilba water storage requirements.
There was no way anyone could have predicted the birth of an Australian icon when the Griffiths family observed the very first windmill roll off the Toowoomba Foundry line over a hundred years ago.
In 2015 at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital, a water tank built by one of our rivals suffered a structural failure, triggering the tank to rupture, flooding somewhere around 2.5 million litres of water to flood Kawana Way, causing wreckage, and even washing away a family vehicle.
