All About Rainwater Storage Tanks

2 Jan

Water tanks are used to store water for different purposes. Obviously, water tanks purposely constructed and to harvest rainwater are called rainwater tanks. You should consider these tanks when you need rainwater for different purposes and for later use.

Here are facts about these storage facilities that you will find helpful.

The uses for rainwater storage tanks

Water stored in rainwater tanks can be readily used as mains supply or as supplementary supply of other sources.

In many countries, the water is used to water the gardens, flush the toilets, irrigate the farms, wash machines, clean up things, etc.

Some people also use it for drinking — after treating with the right chemical or after making it to safe for drinking. This is necessary because rainwater may easily get contaminated.

The available rainwater storage tanks

You have a wide range of choices to make when it comes to rainwater tanks. These tanks can be installed in ground or above ground.

They come in wide range of sizes depending on the volume or capacity of water you will want to store inside.

Moreover, you can still access various styles and shapes — cylindrical, slim line, rectangular rainwater tanks, etc are very common.

Need a rainwater tank for your home?

I always recommend Clark Tanks, Team Poly and National Poly Industries. Other Australian brands including Nylex, Bushmans, Duraplas and Tankworld, but seriously check out one of those recommended three.
