A water tank Pretoria is a container for storing water. Water tanks are used to provide storage of water for use in many applications, drinking water, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming, both for plants and livestock, chemical manufacturing, food preparation as well as many other uses. A water harvesting system can be installed in a house. When it rains the roof of the house becomes the water catchment area. The gutters on the roof funnel rainwater into the pipes, which connect the gutters to the water tanks. The captured rainwater is then stored to be used around the house.
Is the water safe to drink? Generally yes. A properly maintained rainwater tank can provide good quality drinking water. Providing the rainwater is clear, has little taste or smell and is from a well maintained water catchment system it is probably safe and unlikely to cause any illness for most users. And if the water supply you originally filled up with is good, then the same “six month” recommendation applies. If you’re really worried about water quality, FEMA suggests you purchase commercially produced drinking water, and keep it closed until you need it.
A water tank Pretoria pump (also known as a pressure pump) is required in order to use tank water throughout your home. The pump pushes the water out of your tank providing you with pressurised water at the various tap points in your house.
Using rainwater can reduce water bills, provide an alternative supply during water restrictions and help maintain a green, healthy garden. Depending on tank size and climate, mains water use can be reduced by up to 100%. This in turn can help: reduce the need for new dams or desalination plants. Locate your water tank near your down-pipes in your place, this will decrease your location options but it will result in the better way of storing your water. You can run your pipes either above the ground or underground depending on the layout of your house.
