Water tanks are often bought without much thought given to the very important base. A 10 000 litre water tank will exert 10 tons of pressure on its base! Similarly, water tank stands need to be built professionally to withstand the forces of a full water tank. Sturdy water tank stands can be built from brick and mortar; in this case the internal space can be used as a storage room or laundry room, etc. Serviceable tank stands can also be built from sturdy, treated poles (usually gum/eucalyptus poles in Mpumalanga and Limpopo). Steel water tank stands can be custom built to spec or ready-made kits can be purchased and bolted together. We highly recommend that any steel water tank stands are professionally built and are signed-off by an engineer (a 5 ton 10 ton tank full of water could cause extensive damage if the tank stand failed!). Water Rhapsody is an authorised JoJo Tank dealer so we can supply a full range of JoJo tanks and tank stands. JoJo water tank stands are available in the following heights: 1.5m, 3m, 4.5m, 6m & 9m for either 5000 litre water tanks or 10000 litre water tanks. All JoJo water tank stands are certified by engineers.
Water Rhapsody strives to offer a holistic range of sustainable solutions. Water scarcity and energy issues in South Africa are probably the two biggest factors affecting our daily lives. Our water conservation systems (see product demo) include rainwater harvesting systems, grey water recycling systems, greywater irrigation systems, swimming pool backwash recycling systems, water-saving toilet flush mechanisms and of course JoJo water tanks and rainwater tanks. Our acquisition of a Yes Solar dealership enables us to offer the best solar energy solutions on the South African market. Our current solar energy product line-up consists of Solsquare solar water heaters (German-made, SABS- and Eskom-approved). We work with Solsquare-accredited solar installers so that your solar geyser is professionally installed and qualifies for Eskom solar geyser rebates.
