The Department of Water Affairs and the Letsemeng District Municipality approached SBS Tanks to quote on a 2010 kilolitre tank to provide an urgent water storage solution for the community.

“I want to thank SBS Tanks for the wonderful cooperation during the time of the installation and being able, under challenging circumstances to complete the installation within the allocated time and budget,” states IE Poöe, municipal manager of Letsemeng.
