6000 litre JoJo Underground Water Tank

Underground water tanks are a great choice for the person that doesn’t want visual impact of the above ground water tank or is limited to space. There are several things to consider when deciding on which underground water storage system to use at your home or commercial property.

The storage of rainwater has become a major priority these days with dam levels consistently low due to extended droughts and an ever increasing population causing a short fall in our water supply. Storing rainwater (or muncipal or borehole water) underground is becoming more and more desirable with the urban population leading the charge when it comes to storing rainwater underground. Underground rainwater tanks are a great alternative to having a large rainwater tank sitting outside your house. Underground rainwater tanks are welcome addition to the rainwater tanks available to the consumer in the urban market and complement the range slimline and round rainwater tanks that are becoming more popular in the urban areas of all major cities.

Underground water tanks are the answer when space and accessibility are an issue. More and more people are looking at the various ways to store  water or rainwater and underground water tanks have become increasingly common for this reason. If you don’t have room for an above ground water tank then consider an underground water tank for your home. Especially if you are building a new home, get in at ground level and install a new underground water tank before or during your new home or renovation being built.

Underground water tanks are made to endure the underground environment. Made from incredibly strong and durable polyethylene plastic and requiring a shallow excavation the underground water tank is fairly easy to install.

Some things to consider when installing an underground tank are the location (under the house, under the driveway or perhaps just under your garden outdoors), the volume of water that you will need to hold, what the water will be used for. Also the costs to buy, install and maintain an underground system are higher than their above ground cousins.
