1. PAD SPECIFICATIONS
The preparation of the pad for your Rhino Tank is the responsibility of the customer. Our preferred base material is fine crusher dust; however, if crusher dust is not available in your area please insist on using screened course river sand. It must be free of sticks, stones and clay lumps (6mm diameter or less).
Level Pad (+/- 10mm)
Minimum thickness of pad is 150mm
Dimensions are outlined on the enclosed pad specification sheet.
Ensure adequate compaction of the sub soil to avoid subsidence for deep pads.
The customer is required to place an exclusion zone of minimum 10mm Blue Metal/Stone (no clay or concrete) around the base of the tank after installation to prevent erosion and deter rodents from digging around the base.
If Site Access or the Pad Quality is not adequate, it may be necessary for our installation team to leave the tank and re schedule the installation (possibly weeks) until the problem is corrected. Unfortunately, this will incur additional charges over and above the specified cost (to cover wages and travel).
2. SITE ACCESS
Please ensure adequate access to the site for a small truck or 4WD and trailer, bearing in mind soil and weather conditions.
Access is to be available to within 10 metres of site.
If unable to meet these requirements please contact Rhino Water Tanks to make alternative arrangements.
3. ON THE DAY
You are most welcome to attend on the day but it is not essential. It is difficult to finalise a particular installation date in advance due to the weather, freight and labour.
The customer is required to arrange supply of 8,000 – 12,000 litres of water upon completion to stabilize the liner. This amount represents the average of a single truck load of water.
Rhino Water Tanks & Liners are suitable for the storage of water within a PH range of 3-9, and a Temperature range of -6ᵒ - 40ᵒ.
A Tax Invoice will be forwarded upon notification by the installer of Practical Completion. Payment is due on receipt of the Tax Invoice.
4. PAD PREPARATION
The pad must be level to +/- 10mm
Suggested Pad Levelling Technique
With a spirit level on top of a screed, level out the sand or crusher dust using a temporary pole in the centre of the pad as a pivot point.
Screed pivoted in centre
Most sites will fall into 3 main categories.
1. Level existing site therefore Pad preparation is reasonably straight forward.
2. Slightly sloping site therefore Pad needs to compensate slope to ensure it is level.
Cut in drain to divert water.
3. Site has been cut in to create level base therefore we recommend a drain to be dug into the slope above the pad to allow water runoff to be diverted around the tank when it rains. SLS-PRO-007 PAD Specification Guidelines V 1.0 Date Effective: 02/12/2013 Page 3 of 3
