Pak Flat Tank [PFT] is an Australian designed, award-winning, extremely versatile liquid storage unit, that comes as a flat-pack and can be assembled in minutes
Two sizes are available:
PFT 1000 – 1,000 litre capacity
PFT 500 – 500 litre capacity
Liquids in both size containers are safely stored within the inner BPA-free bladders, and have no contact with the outer walls of the tanks.
Both come in a choice of colours – marine blue, heritage green, slate grey and cream.
PFT 1000 is designed primarily to store water, whilst PFT 500 is ideal for storing other non-corrosive non-inflammable liquids.
Both size units are linkable, thereby creating multiple thousands of litre storage capacity in one location, but only the PFT 500 is designed for safe stacking.
Water storage options
PFT 1000 is intended to be used to store water obtained off-grid, that is, from sources other than tap-delivered mains water:
- rainwater harvesting, mainly from roofs
- surface water sources such as rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, etc
- groundwater sources such as wells, bores, aquifers
- water transported to site by trucks, tankers, water-carriers
Raw water from these sources can be stored untreated, pre-treated or treated in one way or another on-site, prior to entering the tank. Once inside the tank’s sealed internal bladder, however, the water is free from further contamination, evaporation and mosquitoes.
Water stored in PFT 1000 can be for a variety of purposes:
Industrial and commercial solutions
The intended use of PFT 500 could be seen as the reverse process to that of water storage. Here the idea is that the tank is delivered to the user already pre-filled, with whatever liquid the user prescribes, and then returned to the supplier when empty, for cleaning and sterilisation before further use.
GreenCo Water focusses its attention particularly upon:
- Rainwater harvesting for domestic garden watering (DIY projects).
- Delivery of emergency water storage capacity to assist in the rapid response to natural and humanitarian disasters.
- Combining with other suitable technologies to provide complete stand-alone safe and secure off-grid facilities for the supply and storage of water for human consumption, sanitation and personal hygiene (WASH)
- Provision of returnable containers for industrial and commercial use liquids

Dr. Leo Maglen
INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR
Leo is an economist with thirty years’ experience in international development assistance. As a freelance consultant Leo worked on over forty development projects ranging across sixteen countries, mostly in the Asia–Pacific region. The funding agencies with which he has worked include the World Bank, ADB, Australia’s DFAT, UK’s DfID, the EU, and the US Millennium Challenge Corporation. Whilst working as a costing and feasibility analyst on projects primarily in the education and training sector, he has appreciated the vital role access to clean fresh water plays in childhood development. He has also seen, at first hand, how well-meaning programs have failed through the use of inappropriate technologies, and insufficient attention being given to sustainability of initial investments.
“To be a socially responsible organisation and be innovative for the development of smart storage solutions that have global impact”
We’re proud of our humanitarian efforts working in concert with aid organisations. To date, we’ve assisted on various projects in Vanuatu, Philippines, Thailand, Yemen, Fiji and Papua New Guinea and are the only listed liquid storage device on DFAT (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) Australia’s emergency response list. Our role in this area has now impacted on thousands of lives, and as we grow, it will impact on thousands more.
Currently the only 1,000 litre flat-pack storage tank available nationally in store, the PFT 1000 makes portable storage fast and easy. Available now as a special order nationwide.
Through our development program we have created PFT 500, the innovative 500 litre transportable model, which will enable industrial and commercial organisations an alternate, cost effective solution to their liquid storage and transportation requirements.
Reducing Our Environmental Impact
Every part of the Pak Flat Tank is 100% recyclable and comes with a 10-year guarantee. The business focus is on reducing the impact on the environment and minimising waste.
Acting With Social Responsibility
Integrity, honesty and reliability – that’s how we define ourselves. The Pak Flat Tank is sustainable in design and application, and an affordable solution to service those requiring fast and easy storage.
