About Us

Aquadam began life in the early 1990’s repairing leaking farm dams. The concrete dams were failing due to a variety of reasons including natural ground movements, poor workmanship or lack of correct materials available during installation. Since then Aquadam has designed and manufactured a wide range of concrete dams and steel tanks in South Africa. We produce Steel Coated Tanks for use in a broad spectrum of industry sectors including agriculture, aquaculture, mining, municipal and fire-fighting. Our storage solutions are widely used in rural, domestic, commercial and industrial applications. Registered in 1992, Aquadam manufacture and supply our highly diverse range of steel tanks to a wide range of customers throughout South Africa and into the rest of Africa.

Aquadam is a certified B-BBEE level 2 contributor in the industry.


Our employees and installers are well trained and certified in the installation of your tank and comply with the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993. Our installers are certified in first aid, safety, basic fire fighting, working on heights, scaffolding erection and inspection.

Collectively, Aquadam’s owners and management team have more than 70 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of water storage structures. Aquadam focuses on providing top quality tanks at affordable prices with outstanding service. Because Aquadam is the only company in South Africa that designs and manufactures such a wide variety of steel tanks, we are able to provide our clients with the right advice and the perfect storage solutions. We first determine each client’s specific needs, and then recommend the correct tank that will meet the client’s requirements, objectives and budget. What sets us apart is the breadth of our offer, because at Aquadam we offer everything related to water storage solutions under one roof. All our products are designed on a highly sophisticated software program and manufactured locally which eliminates the lengthy waiting periods often involved with imported products. It also makes for more expedient repair work in the event of damage resulting from an “Act of God” because replacement parts are immediately available.

Once the your order is approved, our software program orders the material from the suppliers and print all manufacturing orders and work orders. In addition, all our installation materials (e.g. sand, cement, steel and bolts) are locally sourced. We believe that local procurement, design and production is good for the South African economy.
