Why water storage tanks?
Having water tanks attached to a property or placed in a community not only gives access to safe water, but it protects the community members too.
Water tanks mean everyone can have access to a vital resource without fear of access, availability, or even worse, being attacked on the way to the well or local water source.
The impact simple water storage tanks can have on a community is huge!
A Rota Tanks story...
52 families in the small village of Korobete in Sabeto, Nadi had struggled to gain access to fresh water for years. They used to take daily trips to a nearby river with buckets and bottles, or hire vehicles to take them to the next village, just to have water to drink and to cook with.
That was all until their community received four Rota Tank water tanks...
“Our struggle has ended today as we have excess to clean drinking water. The struggle from previous years has now ceased."
Described as a blessing, villagers were overjoyed to “be able to cook, wash and drink using clean water” from the water tanks.
Being able to supply septic tanks brings a new level of relief and excitement to communities who have not had a proper way to deal with sewage before.
The seed was sown for Rotomould on a rainy day in Fiji, back in the year 2000.
It all began as we drove by a long line of people waiting to collect water after a devastating hurricane. After seeing the lack of access to fresh water and storage options, we knew there had to be a better way and a solution was needed.
Little did we know that one day we would be living the dream of providing access to clean and safe drinking water and septic tanks across the South Pacific.
We thought long and hard about how we could help these communities gain access to a more affordable and durable alternative to the existing concrete and fibreglass water tanks already in the South Pacific.
Rotomould was born...
Our desire to provide access to clean and safe drinking water to Pacific Island communities saw our first factory established in Fiji in 2000.
From there, we began to expand. Now, we have 8 factories in 6 South Pacific countries. Still a family business, we have three directors who oversee all aspects of operations. We work closely with our management teams to ensure our high standards are always maintained.
We weren’t content with only supplying water tanks. We wanted to provide better living conditions too, which is why we also began manufacturing septic tanks.
Then we thought, why stop there? So, we also manufacture dog houses, PET bottles, and compost bins, as well as supply wheelie bins, rainwater harvesting solutions (leaf eaters, first flushiverters – 90mm and 100mm), taps and stoppers!
Our commitment to quality
We have an absolute commitment to quality products as well as adhering to governing regulations and standards. We were the first and only company in Fiji, Tonga and the Soloman Islands whose water tanks met international standards.
They continue to be manufactured under the strict ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System which ensures we test and track every individual tank. Each one has a thorough paper trail of passed tests as it leaves our premises, giving you confidence and assurance you have a certified quality product that will work for you.
Healthier people means a healthier economy
We truly believe that healthier people make a healthier economy for the Pacific. Which is why we are also committed to human and social development.
Water tanks don’t just mean clean water. They mean an improvement in the lives of local women who do not have to complete the laborious task of fetching water from distant creeks and rivers. They also mean less risk of children contracting water borne diseases. We are helping improve sanitation facilities and reducing the risk of dengue and malaria. With septic tanks part of our solution the effects are amplified.
In our 19 years of operation, we have worked with some of the biggest and best donor agencies - supplying, delivering and installing water tanks of assorted sizes throughout the South Pacific. With an intimate knowledge of the South Pacific, project management expertise, and tried and true production methods, we have the capacity to deliver projects of any size.
In fact, we have been known to line 150 tanks at a time along an airport runway as it was the only place on the island big enough to store that number of water tanks!
We can’t wait to do this amazing job for 19 more years (and beyond!)
Supplying the entire South Pacific…
From humble beginnings, the Rotomould Group has grown to be an extremely vital resource in the South Pacific. Even though many South Pacific villages and communities are self-sustaining, they still deserve access to clean water and a sewage system.
And we deliver it to them, no matter where they are!
From 8 manufacturing plants in 6 Pacific nations, we supply water storage tanks and septic tanks where they are needed most.
We have manufacturing plants in Fiji (Lautoka and Labasa), Tonga, Samoa, Soloman Islands, Kiribati and Vanuatu (Port Vila and Santo). We also regularly supply our water tanks and septic tanks to Papua New Guinea, Nauru, Christmas Island, Wallis and Futuna and the Marshalls.
