Water Tank Installations

Installing a water storage tank system can help you save money and resources on water costs. Learn how to do it with these steps. Water storage tanks get used to store water for a variety of uses. Many of them can collect rainwater, allowing homeowners to keep an emergency supply and save on their water bill.

While many business owners and homeowners would like to invest in these, they’re often uncertain about how the installation process goes. Rainwater tank installation has been simplified over the years, allowing anyone to install them with few tools.

Size and Location
Residential portable water storage tanks vary in shapes in sizes, giving you many options to choose from. You must measure the tank and area of where you’ll be placing it to ensure that you don’t get one that’s too large.

Tank sites

While some authorities are mandating water tanks for new homes, the rest of us ponder where we can fit one to our existing home. The standard old-style cylindrical concrete or steel tanks are still a cost-effective solution for homes with plenty of land around them, but what if you’re a little tight for space? There are now some innovative water tanks that will slip into unused space around your home.

Great locations for them include: under a deck or patio; in a side passage; under an elevated house; behind a garage; or under a new swimming pool.

Collapsible water tanks (large water bags in a frame), are very easy to fit into tight spaces under houses or decks. They are assembled in place so there are no handling or access problems like there are with moving large awkward tanks in confined spaces. These collapsible tanks can also be used as temporary stormwater retention systems – helping to take the pressure of the local drainage system until the storm-front has passed.

Some swimming pool manufacturers now offer pools with an integrated water storage tank under the shallow end, or in the same excavation. So if you’re considering a new pool, now’s the time to look at water storage too (because pools require regular top-ups). If you’ve had enough of looking after an old pool, rather than ripping it out or filling it in, have a lid made for it (say a large deck) that converts your pool into a water tank. An average in-ground pool holds 50,000 litres, making an old pool a very large water tank indeed.

With water storage size is everything. When the downpours finally arrive a large tank will store more before the excess runs off to drains, streams and the sea. That means you have more to use until the next rain.
