Easy to install
12 Nov 2009
By Grayzee

"All the fittings come with the product, outside pipework is required. The tank comes with very easy to use instructions and requires only a stable base to be constructed for it to rest upon.
Some of the drill sizes required to install the item are odd however as I've installed them regularly I bought all the sizes required.
Don't be tempted to use the wrong drill sizes as this will compromise the tanks guarantee and could cause leaks.
Overall.....A very good product that fits through most loft hatches. I will continue to use this range of tanks.

Great quality product
23 May 2013
By Kinkladze

"Bought this product after searching online for the cheapest place. Bought instore and had no problems with any damage, tank was in immaculate condition but always worth checking before you purchase.
The kit comes with everything you need to replace your cold water storage tank. The only gripe I have is only one tank connector, and that connector is a cheap one that is very awkward to tighten up due to not having a hexagonal nut on the inside. It also does not come with insulation to cover the lid, a bit disappointing to skimp on something obvious like this.
The tank size is perfect for fitting through a standard loft hatch, and the footprint is just right to make maneuvering in a cramped loft easy enough. Instructions are also clear and straightforward."

Polytank Scratches
2 Apr 2013
By dash471
, Southampton
"Recently ordered a 42 gallon tank which was delivered with deep scratches on base so took it to local Screwfix for replacement as they had 2 in stock. The store man at Southampton showed me both the tanks they had and these were in a worse state than the one I rejected. He ordered me another tank to be delivered which thankfully arrived without damage. This situation needs to be investigated as it says in the Polytank instructions "Do Not Scratch the tank" when fitting.
1. Ensure all staff in delivery chain carry these tanks and NOT drag them about, they are very light and can be easily carried.
2. Put some pressure on polytank to provide some protection packaging to the base edges of the tanks as this seems to be where most of the scratches are inflicted.
They are currently supplied with no protection at all!"

OK for a cold water storagtank
24 Oct 2012
By Nigelace

"Would have like a taller tank but that would have meant enlarging the loft opening so slight compromise on size.
The instructions with it suggest there is an insulation jacket for the top; NOT the case. Consulting the manufacturer, they said there hasn't been one for 2 years, we are using up old leaflets. Strange then that the online instructions are also wrong!
The lids could be manufactured to fit better than the ones on this tank.
Apart from that it comes with the necessary fittings, ball-valve etc.
Reliability is too early to say but it was compulsory to answer!

42 Worst Gallon loft kit
1 Jul 2013
By Ja63
, London
"Very poor quality kit (plastic) it should be copper, rubber washers not enough, no insulation for the top of the tank, the quality of the tank is poor and weak, too pricey, and as a result my plumber could not and would not finish the job. I put the old one back because its made from steel and lasted 80 years and the new loft tank ended up in the garden to collect rain water."
