Product Description

Aquadam supplies a wide range of Corrugated Steel Coated Tanks (Optional Colours) under the Smart Tank brand, for affordable and flexible use in many applications. The special characteristics of the Smart Tank steel tank are quality, firmness of shape and mechanical strength. The Smart Tank has been branded under two categories; the Smart Tank Extreme which is your option for a completely customised water storage tank, and the Smart Tank Express which is standard sizes obtainable only from your nearest distributor or cooperative.

Some of the many and diverse uses of these highly versatile tanks include nurse ponds, fish hatcheries, aquaculture tanks, irrigation tanks, rain water tanks, clear water tanks, industrial fluid storage tanks, buffer storage tanks and mopping-up tanks, to name but a few. Aquadam’s corrugated steel tanks are ideal when quick DIY installation is required.

Versatile and Cost-Effective


These corrugated steel tanks are easily transportable on a one-ton bakkie and are exceptionally easy to erect, either by one of our experienced installation teams (Smart Tank Extreme) or as a DIY installation (Smart Tank Express).

The Smart Tank corrugated steel tank is available in a wide variety of sizes to suit every need. The high tensile strength and unique profile of the wall sheets allow the corrugated steel tank to be supplied in a range of different heights while retaining firmness of shape.

You do not have to worry about deterioration or contamination of the water within. Each unit is supplied with a certified potable liner that will ensure that the contents remain drinkable by humans and animals.

Tanks do not require a concrete floor for installation, but merely a level surface or for larger tanks a concrete ring beam filled with a sand base.

  • The Smart Tank – Storm Tank is designed to withstand wind speeds, thunderstorms and earthquakes.

Multiple options in the Smart Tank Extreme


The Smart Tank Extreme can be constructed with your choice of galvanized corrugated steel sheets or zincalume coated corrugated steel sheets. The Smart Tank is very versatile and offers you a choice to be installed with a roof, a tarpaulin cover or without a roof, an option that many of our clients have requested. Featuring outstanding protection against UV radiation and dirt.

Your choice of Galvanized corrugated steel sheets for the tank wall:

When choosing the galvanized corrugated steel sheets, the steel panels of the tank wall are manufactured from high grade galvanized corrugated steel using ultra modern roll-forming techniques. The corrugated sheets are continuously hot dipped in an almost pure zinc formulation. Zinc has inherent sacrificial properties and corrodes first before the mild steel corrodes. Galvanizing offers almost twice the service life than that of the steel substrate. Included are highly corrosion-resistant nuts, bolts and washers treated with high quality galvanizing.

Your choice of Zincalume Coated corrugated steel sheets for the tank wall:

When choosing the zincalume corrugated steel sheets, the steel panels of the tank are coated with a zinc layer on both sides. The corrugated steel sheets are continuously hot dipped in a formulation of Aluminum (55%) Zinc (43.5%) and Silicon (1.5%). The aluminum components of the coating provide a tough physical barrier between the extreme atmospheric conditions and the inner core of the steel. The zinc in the coating protects the steel where exposed.

Your Colour coated option:

Modern Innovation in colour coated tanks has taken the Smart Tank to a new level. The Smart Tank can be produced in optional polymer coated colours that can blend into the environment. The highly durable, modified powder coated colours help to protect against harsh climatic conditions. Colour coated tanks provides for even longer service life for a water storage tank in the colour of your choice and extends the durability of modern coated steel.

Your cyclonic designed Smart Tank:

The Smart Tank design can be adapted to stand up to aggressive wind loads of specific regions where hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes and thunderstorms occur regularly. The Smart Tank can be designed according to your windspeed specifications, and we’ll make sure to adapt the weight and thickness of the roof sheets, wall sheets and spacing of the roof trusses for an even more durable structure when nature comes thundering down. Increased usage of bolts and nuts with a bigger and heavier ringbeam will keep the Smart Tank anchored and sturdy against cyclonic windspeeds of up to 55m/second. A custom designed Smart Tank will keep your water storage supply secure and safe when nature comes knocking at your door in full force.
