5 Key Features and Benefits of Water Carts

The Australian Summer brings with it challenges of harsh, hot, and dry weather, which increases the need for accessible water to protect your assets from fire hazards. Across the next few months, the need for water carts to transport and distribute water is essential across different industries including firefighting, construction, agriculture, landscaping, irrigation, and general water transportation.

Water trailers transport and dispense water efficiently and safely. Typically holding between 1,200L to 2,400L, water trailers utilise robust polyethylene tanks with customisation options like retractable hose reels and firefighting nozzles for added functionality. It’s important to note that water trailers differ from water trucks (or tankers) that are much bigger, with the capacity to hold around 6,000L to 30,000L. Usage can also differ between water trucks and trailers. Water trucks are predominantly used to carry large amounts of drinking water to rural properties. Whereas water trailers distribute water for compaction of dust suppression, clean off equipment and roads, and power water-driven equipment such as pressure washers.

Features and Benefits of Water Carts 

Maintaining Worksite Compliance

A Water trailer helps assist construction businesses in maintaining compliance through both machinery cleaning, and concrete dust suppression. They help to maintain a clean construction site and ensure your business stays compliant with relevant regulations. Assisting workers with machinery and equipment maintenance, water trailers also provide a fast and convenient way to clean down equipment at the end of the workday.

On Site Dust Suppression

Water carts can be very useful in preventing the spread of dust on large-scale construction sites. Spraying the surfaces can stop dust from circulating and even catch dust already in the air. Consequently, this reduces worker risk of contracting diseases associated with dust exposure.

Reliable Water Source for Crop Irrigation

Water trailers assist with providing a reliable water source for crop irrigation. This is essential to crop longevity especially during the warmer months and drought season. Alongside water cartage, water trailers can be used to deliver fertilisers and pesticides across remote and rural locations, whilst also storing water in places with infrequent rainfall.

Fighting Fires

Rural locations with restricted access to fire hydrants require a detailed plan for fire safety.  Water carts are designed for simple and effective fire defence to extinguish fires quickly and efficiently. For regional and remote properties in bushfire-prone areas, water trailers are especially useful.

Maintaining Ground Conditions

Councils and clubs must maintain the quality and appearance of their sports grounds. Sports fields that are turf-based, can benefit from a water trailer to assist with hassle-free irrigation and pesticide spraying without investing in an in-ground irrigation system. For sports grounds facing dry conditions, water trailers can also be used for dust suppression.

quote-01I purchased a Poly Tank Fuel Trailer from DUROTANK in April 2018. DUROTANK builds one of the best fuel trailers I have ever used. The build quality, engineering and attention to detail is unreal. The fuel trailer is rock solid, it tracks extremely well full of fuel at 100km/hr and its road worthy. All of the fittings are hoses are high quality hydraulic hose and crimped fittings so there are no leaks. The Durotank team is very easy to deal with and more than happy to help with any enquiries. The staff are friendly and it is a pleasure to do business with them. I’d buy another one in a heartbeat, that’s for sure

quote-01The Duro Cubes are going extremely well! My guys are very happy with them. Having them already saved us on oil transport on at least 2 occasions so far and has also allowed us to restructure our oil work days and use out of hours oil deliveries to make more efficient use of the time on site.
