Available in 1,000 litres, and soon to come 2,000 litres, stormPANEL is an ultra-slim above-ground water tank.
When space is tight, stormPANEL tanks are ideal for existing and new homes. The tanks are designed to not be seen and the ease of handling was part of the design process from the start. To learn more about stormPANEL, view our brochure.

Why Choose stormPANEL
The 1,000L and 2,000L models have been designed to connect together to increase volume.
Designed to take up as little space as possible, stormPANEL is only 460mm deep.
A single FenceTank™ holds 1,000L of water! Equivalent to four-days water supply for the average household. You can have as many tanks as your property can accommodate, and your roof can fill.
Tank Grade Plastic
A quality product internationally recognised as the most appropriate grade for New Zealand’s harsh conditions.
Proudly NZ Made, 10 Year Warranty
FenceTank™ is made by Kiwi’s for Kiwi’s. It is designed and manufactured in Penrose, with manufacturing facilities in the Lower North and South Islands.
Each council has specific requirements that must be met in relation to rainwater collection and storm water runoff.
Our team can help you understand what these are so your solution is not only perfect for your property and needs, but compliant too.
What Can I Use Rainwater For?
Rainwater can be collected for reuse outside. It can also be used to wash clothes and flush toilets. This represents 56% of water use for the average household.
A figure that is on par with the average water bill savings from Hobsonville Residents who collect rainwater for the same purpose via using a WaterSmart solution.
It is possible to use rainwater entirely, although this may require additional filtration for hygienic purposes (drinking, showering, dishwashing etc.). If you plan to connect a tank to your internal plumbing, you will require a building consent.
Get in touch with your local council for specific information related to your area.
How Much Water Can I Collect?
This depends on the size of your roof. The following estimate is based on an average roof area of 200 sqm in each of the main regions –
- Auckland – an average of 17,000L per month
- Hamilton – an average of 18,000L per month
- Wellington – an average of 20,000L per month
- Christchurch – an average of 9500L per month
Use our rainwater collection calculator for an estimate of what you could collect.
How Much Money Can I Save Off My Water Bill?
This depends on what you use your rainwater for. If it’s outdoor use, you could save on average 18%. But of course, you could save considerably more if you have a pool, boat or water gardens and lawns frequently.
If you have rainwater plumbed back into your house to wash clothes and flush toilets, this amount can jump to 56%.
You can use rainwater for everything, although this may require additional filtration for hygienic purposes (drinking, showering, dishwashing and so on).
If you plan to connect a tank to your internal plumbing you will require a building consent. Get in touch with your local council for specific information related to your area.

Designed to Be Sustainable
stormPANEL tanks are manufactured from the highest quality polyethylene available which is ideally suited to our moulding technique giving long life and trouble-free service.
The material is certified to AS/NZ4766:2006, AS/NZS4020:205, and AS/NZS 2070 so are suitable for potable water. Polyethylene cannot rot or corrode and is UV stabilised for New Zealand’s harsh environmental conditions.
The manufacturing process produces zero waste of polyethylene and the product is 100% recyclable. At the end of its useful life, it can be returned to us to be recycled into other long-lasting products.
The stormPANEL is designed to AS/NZS4766 by independent engineers with generic seismic and wind restraint systems for New Zealand’s most trying areas – PS1 documents for restraints are available with all stormPANEL tanks.
Style It Your Way
stormPANEL tanks have been designed with threaded M5 pointing points on one side to allow the fitting of custom artwork, wooden trellis, or other screening (not supplied with the tank). Please note that the attachments must be supported at ground level.
By Kiwis, For Kiwis
stormPANEL has been proudly designed and manufactured in New Zealand with the intent to provide a rainwater harvesting solution for Kiwis right from Cape Reinga to Bluff.
What sizes and colours are available?
stormPANEL tanks are available in a range of colours. Standard sizes available are 1,000L to a soon to be available 2,000L. Larger volumes are achieved by coupling multiple tanks together onsite with ease.
Who can install stormPANEL tanks?

Are the tanks compliant?
They sure are! stormPANEL is designed to exceed AS/NZS4766:2020 and the material is certified to AS/NZS4766:2006, AS/NZS4020:2005, and AS/NZS 2070.
What are they made of?
The highest quality polyethylene available. Polyethylene cannot rot or corrode and is ultraviolet stabilised. The manufacturing process produces zero waste and the product is 100% recyclable; it’s also ideally suited to our moulding technique, giving long life and trouble-free service.
Where can stormPANEL be installed?
The tanks have been designed for installation on an above ground flat surface. It is suggested to install on a concrete base min 100 mm thick, with nominal ductile mesh reinforcement if subsoils are in accordance with NZS3604 classification for “good ground”. Alternative options such as paving slabs laid on a firm compacted sand & gravel base are acceptable if subsoils are in accordance with NZS3604 classification for “good ground”.
