Water tanks can be used to store and supply captured rainwater to your home and garden. Rainwater is safe to use in showers, bath, flushing of toilets, laundry, topping up of pools and irrigation. In many instances the use of rainwater can replace your need for municipal water completely. Tanks are sized to according to the available roof area, number of people living in the home and expected draw on the supply.
In the event of erratic or intermittent municipal water supply a water tank can be used to store potable municipal water for subsequent use during water outages. The size of the water tank can be calculated to meet the water demand for the expected water outage. Tank sizes vary from 500 litres to 20000 litres. An adequately sized pump will ensure water delivery to the building (flowrate and pressure) is sufficient to meet demand.
Ground water storage:
As our supply of fresh, drinkable, water is reaching scarcity levels and water restrictions are imposed, extracting ground water for irrigation is becoming more popular. This water is found deep beneath the surface and often even strong pumps can only deliver a trickle of water to the surface. This trickle is typically insufficient to be sent directly to an irrigation system. In this case the trickle of water is first sent to a water storage tank to collect the required volume of groundwater before it is sent to an irrigation system. Aquarista is able to supply and install the water tank and provide a suitable pump, to deliver sufficient flowrate and pressure to an irrigation system.
