ECMIL The Steel of The Region

Welded galvanised water tanks
have an amazing life expectancy,

and as a single unit, can handle a capacity of up to six times
its PVC counterpart.  A galvanised water tank will enhance
your long term collection of water, reducing your imminent dependency on Water Authority supplies, especially in dry
and storm weather.  It can withstand much greater winds,
to protect your greatest asset, your stored water supply.

It can also be customised to fit any space and shape,
unlike PVC standard sizes.

ECMIL has been supplying custom built water tanks to
the region for a great many years. They have never replaced one yet!

Our regional weather, in recent times, has become much more difficult to predict, more intense and destructive. 
Developing and protecting our personal survival kit
has become more important than ever.

Heat reduction and solar energy use, coupled with good water management and storage, are the most important initiatives
that we can develop, both personally and on a regional scale.

Steel as storage is ideal in weight, durability and composition
to meet these challenges and create reliability, when our lives become destabilised due to storms.

It's remarkable just 
how much work a wheelbarrow can do

For a mason, it is the vehicle of choice, carrying cement,
blocks, sand and ready mix, even concrete or plaster, often across a vast array of make-shift bridges, constructed from
12" by 1" casting boards, to the latest destination during construction.

What makes this possible without disaster? The rubber tyre,
as it bounces over different heights and imperfections in
its path.

For carpenters, plumbers and electricians the humble wheelbarrow plays an equally critical role, as the single most important utility tool on any building site.

A solid construction enables a wheelbarrow to achieve its primary goal with dry and wet cargo. This is where steel plays such an important part.

This often ignored vessel will be bashed, bumped, dropped from a great height and stressed beyond belief, all in the name of construction.

The rubber and wooden varieties are for light gardening; practical, if somewhat cosmetic.  A steel constructed wheelbarrow will make it through the building process, to endure the indignity of removing the last of the site garbage, only to become the home owner's friend and favourite garden companion.

An important sidebar to this is that you should never lend your wheelbarrow. It will be like losing your right arm during the time it's gone and will somehow never be the same again when it returns!

The combination of Storage and Transportation will enhance
your long term collection of water, while easing the movement of items
and debris around your property, saving on labour and potential health issues.
