Drinking Water is becoming one of the most rare goods in the 21st century. and to save water we do installing a water tank in the house is going to enhance the property value as shortage of water is a coming problem and we have to solve this.
We are in the process of buying a home that has a water tank in the basement that collects the ground water from the sump pump to feed the sprinkler system. Are you familiar with this type of system? Should we be concerned with this in our basement?
We live in South Africa on a farm with our own bore hole. We are thinking of installing a water tank to collect the rainwater for use. What i am wondering is, if the water stand still in a tank for 5 - 6 months before usage, how does that affect the quality of the water (algae etc?).
Your water will only degrade if light can get into the tank, without light nothing will grow in it - think about water in a pipe, apart from the surface of the water in the tank, its the same situation.
Hi there, we are building a new house, there are three old above ground big plastic tanks. Should I keep them for future use. How do I clean the inside.? The main use of these tanks is for watering gardens. Thanks!
If they are in a good state of repair - keep them. As for cleaning, if you have a filter on the input and a 'first flush' divert in place, the amount of crud on the bottom would be quite small. Cleaning it is probably a professional job, depends on the size of tank and if you want to flush out all the water as well. Some tanks have a bottom flush device..
A good tip is to actually paint the outside of the tank, this freshens it up and helps protect it from UV damage - looks like new and far cheaper than buying more tanks.
I want to know that whcih type of elevated water tanks are suitable Either circular shape or rectangular shape? It is to remember that I want to construct RCC water tank?

Hello, I am about to purchase 2 X 26,000ltr used plastic tanks with their pump and piping. They had been used for about 30 years until they were allowed to run dry 7 years ago. Could this cause a problem with the tanks, or the pump and pipes. Thank you.
