What to Consider When Buying a Water Tank

From month to month homeowners are presented with various expenses most commonly utility expenses, electricity, gas, phone and the ever-increasing water bill. We use water every day in various everyday activities, and we all have our own ways to lessen our water consumption. Whether it’s simply turning off the tap while brushing our teeth or fixing any leaky taps at home, every homeowner can reduce their water consumption in their own personal way.

One of the most efficient ways to save water is by using a rainwater tank. This water-saving equipment is your way of using a natural source of water for potable or non-potable applications. If you are considering a rainwater tank for your home, here are some factors to consider:

What’s It Going to be Used for?

Generally, there are two main applications of water tanks: household use or irrigation. For household use, you should ensure that the water is clean and potable since you may want to use it for washing dishes, cleaning cloths or bath water. If you need it for irrigation purposes, the water needs to be low in salt, and it needs to have adequate volume for your irrigation system’s pump to operate correctly.

What Size Do You Need?

Once you determine the purpose of your tank, you can determine what size matches your needs. When determining the size, you should consider the number of people in your house, number of bathrooms, laundry and kitchen usage and whether you have a hot water heating system. These factors can help you determine if you need a big or small tank for your property.
