For Wastewater, Firewater & Stormwater Storage
Maskell’s range of corrosion-resistant fibreglass detention tanks are a safe, long-term solution to water detainment. A detention tank is an artificial flow-control system which is used to hold wastewater, fire protection water or stromwater for a limited period of a time.
A detention tank can be incorporated into the sewer network. In this case, the detention tank is used to even out any peak flows occurring in the system. This works to prevent overflow of downstream sewers and wastewater treatment plants.
Often needed for consent purposes, detention tanks play an important role in ensuring new housing developments do not put increased stress of public wastewater systems. This is particularly important in areas of intense development, like the Auckland region.
When weighing up your options for an underground detention tank, you need to consider maintenance and upkeep costs. Because Maskell manufacture their tanks using fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP), their detention tanks range are lightweight and maintenance free.
Maskell produce their tanks in a range of sizes – from 1,000 to 110,000 litres. With a detention tank from Maskell, you can rest assured that wastewater is safely contained in a leak & corrosion free environment that will stand the test of time.
