Plinth kits are available for the Code T11 tank and one size for Code T45, T70 and T95 tanks.


User notes
  • Warning: tank plinths constructed with this kit must not exceed a total height of 1.5m.

  • The plinth kit should only be erected on compact, level ground.
  • The tank plinth must be dug in to approx. 10cm, and filled with dry or slightly damp earth in layers, compacted every 15cm. Earth types which swell when wet should be avoided.
