Water tanks for businesses – why are they important?

In many cases, the subject of water tanks and rainwater tanks tends to focus on domestic applications but businesses should also consider installing water tanks and/or rainwater harvesting systems, especially in water-scarce South Africa.

rain water harvesting

Factories and warehouses often have ideal rooftop surfaces for collecting vast quantities of rainwater

Water shortages and water supply cuts (both planned and unannounced) are a reality in South Africa and can play havoc with the efficient operation of many businesses (let alone households!).  Whether a business requires water for manufacturing processes or whether water is needed for employees (drinking water, toilet flushing, etc.) it is a good idea to install water tanks specifically for storing municipal water for emergencies and water supply cuts.  It may also be wise to have a booster pump that is powered by a small generator in case or power cuts too (an increasing possibility in South Africa too!).

Taking it a step further, businesses can also engage in rainwater harvesting to become less dependent on municipal water supplies and save on water bills too (as well as mitigating the effects of water supply outages).  Many businesses operate from factories and warehouses – often the steel rooftops are ideal and very large surface areas for collecting substantial quantities of rainwater.  A series of 10000 litre, 15000 litre or 20000 litre poly water tanks alongside a factory could store enough rainwater for the business to become virtually self-sufficient when it comes to water.

In these difficult economic times, businesses in South Africa should seriously consider installing water tanks and/or rainwater tanks to save money on water bills and reduce production delays that could result from municipal water supply outages.
