If your property doesn’t have access to running water, or if it does but you want to be prepared in case they cut the water supply for any reason, or even if you just want to save money on your water bill, whatever the reason may be, there are essential things you need consider before you go and purchase one.
1. Do you have space
This is the first thing you need to ask yourself in order to install a water tank in your property. If you are still in the design stage you can consider integrating the water tank as part of your home’s design. If you already have a finished house, you have to consider where will you put it, how will it look and how will you fit it inside the property.
2. The size of your roof
When it comes to installing a rainwater tank, the size of your roof matters because the bigger the surface is, the more water you can capture and that will affect the size of your tank.
3. Know your needs
Even if you have the space and can afford a big water tank, it is best if you establish your needs in advance, that way you can make sure you’re purchasing the right size and type of water tank according to your needs. If you have a big garden with lots of plants, a small size water tank just won’t do.
4. How often you get rainfall
The periodicity of rainfall is also another factor to take into account when you decide to purchase a water tank. If you live in an area where you get lots of rain, then a smaller tank will work as it will get filled constantly, but if you live in dry areas a bigger tank is a better option.
Choosing the right water tank is key to make good use of the natural resources and get the best results for your investment.
