Some commonly asked questions about one of South Africa’s most popular and trusted brands of water tanks: JoJo Tanks.
HOW DOES A JoJo TANK DIFFER FROM OTHER TANKS?
Trusted industry leader JoJo Tanks, has been making water tanks for more than 30 years and is so confident about the quality of its tanks that every JoJo tank has a 8-year warranty on workmanship and carry a quality certification from the Agrément Board of South Africa. JoJo tanks are made from the best quality raw food grade material, are tried and tested and built to last long.
ARE FITTINGS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?
All standard fittings on tanks are included in the price.
ARE TAPS INCLUDED AND WHAT IS NEEDED ADDITIONALLY TO INSTALL A TAP?
A variety of taps, e.g. plastic or lockable solid brass or nickle plated can be ordered separately at additional costs and a 40/20 reducer is also needed to fit to the tank.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM PRESSURE THAT JoJo TANKS CAN HANDLE?
JoJo tanks are designed and manufactured to withstand internal pressure. However, when installing a tank below ground level, only use the JoJo underground tank. Its rugged, ribbed design offers superior strength for underground installation and the rib placement provides exceptional structural integrity. If a tank made for above ground usage is placed underground, a retaining wall is required to overcome the external pressure created by the surrounding earth – particularly when the tank is empty.
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE THAT JoJo TANKS CAN HANDLE?
JoJo tanks are designed to withstand the full range of temperatures that occur throughout South Africa. However, liquid stored inside the tank should not exceed 40°C.
CAN A JoJo TANK BE INSTALLED EVEN WHEN THE HOUSE IS ALREADY BUILT?
Yes, you can retrofit a JoJo tank. Simply identify a suitable position where a downpipe can be connected to the roof guttering to harvest the rain. Remember that the platform should be 100% level, at least 50mm wider than the base of the tank and at least 100 – 150mm thick to carry the weight of the tank when full.
IS WATER STORED IN A JoJo WATER TANK SAFE TO DRINK?
All JoJo water tanks are lined with a black food safety accredited lining material that inhibits the growth of algae. However, it is not advisable to use rainwater collected off the roof for drinking purposes unless there is no other source of water. If one is in this situation it is advisable to boil the water before drinking it. This means bringing the water to a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute – an effective means of disinfecting small amounts of water quickly – making it safe to drink.
