Is there space in my garden for a bulk tank?

A bulk tank needs surprisingly little space

All you have to do is ensure the legally required safety distances around your tank. Unless you install extra screens, the minimum clearance required around your tank is as follows:

  • 5 metres from doors and windows;
  • 3 metres from the public highway and neighbouring properties.

For an above-ground tank, these distances are measured from the wall of the tank. If you opt for an underground tank, the measurement is taken from the fill valve. Distances can be smaller if screens are put up.
