The best method to save and store water is by buying a high-quality steel water tank in Botswana.

About Us


The view was established in 1948 and manufactured its first pressed steel tank shortly thereafter. Offering sectional steel water tank in Botswana in both modular and circular design, tanks are formed using panels, prefabricated cleats and stays bolted together on site to give an infinite range of sizes and capacities. Though generally square or rectangular in construction, tanks can be provided in a variety of forms to suit particular site conditions and project requirements.

This modular concept and bolted construction allow for fast assembly utilizing semi-skilled labor, which provides advantages and cost-cutting benefits associated with reduced site occupation when considered against traditional concrete or welded steel construction.  This system also lends itself to straightforward refurbishment as individual components can be inspected and replaced as required.  Similarly, alterations to dimensions and capacity can be done with minimal downtime.


The Importance of storing water


Each of our water storage solutions is designed to conveniently and somewhat neatly store water for all sorts of uses.  Depending on the tank you buy, as well as the purpose of your water storage, you can store clean water for consumption or for use on a construction plant while the tanks can also be used for the storage of greywater.  Galvanized water tanks offer a great solution for saving and they will not contaminate the water with a strange taste, something that can happen when lower quality tanks are used.  The Galvanized tanks for sale are generally used in a place where they will be fixed to the ground.  Basically, you are not going to be transporting these tanks once they are full.  If your aim is to transport water, it is best to look at a portable water storage tank.  If you are unsure of which tanks will be best serve your needs.  View tanks can give you the advice you need.

Selecting portable water tanks vs. fixed galvanized water tanks


For Warehouses or factories and businesses looking for a water tank, the best option is often the fixed galvanised tank. This is a popular selection for those who are not going to need to move the tank around. Fixed tanks remain in one place, and because of their size, they are often built on site rather than transported already built. As mentioned before, the galvanised tank is completely hygienic, which makes it suitable for storing water for drinking but it can also be used for storing greywater, if that is your intention.
