Water tanks are containers that collect rainwater to use for different purposes such as household needs, agriculture, chemical processes, food preparation and fire extinguishing. If you decide to invest in Water Tanks & Tank Equipment, you will save two things: money and water while contributing to a greener environment. What’s important for you to know is that there are many different kinds of tanks available out there, made with various materials. Here is a guide to the top 4 Water Tanks & Tank Equipment Installation.
Poly tanks are among the most used as they’re light, versatile and long-lasting. You can find them in a wide array of colours and shapes according to your preference. Polyethylene tanks are created for strength and can therefore be installed underground so that they don’t take away any space in your backyard. Moreover, they can be modeled and connected to each other to obtain a bigger water storage.
On the other hand, this option has a higher cost than the previous ones as it require more excavation; but it is the most durable with a little risk of flooding, rusting or corroding. They can be built underground either directly on site or ordered precast concrete and installed later. When they’re built on site they allow maximum customization.
Fiberglass tanks can also be placed both above the ground and below to keep them out of sight. Usually, they resist corrosion and last long. However, they are more expensive when compared to poly water tanks and hold a bigger risk for cracks.
