Do water tanks make life easier?

Whether the home is classified as a humble, low-income building or whether it is a mansion, in South Africa, a water tank or two can definitely ‘make life easier’.

Many low-income households in South Africa typically rely on water collected from distant rivers or wells or at best, a communal water point where they may have to queue for hours to fill containers or water (which are typically carried home by women, the containers balanced on their heads). A water tank, especially one that is placed to collect water from rooftops, will certainly make life easier for a low-income family. Even if water tanks are not used for collecting rainwater, they can be filled by municipal/community water bowsers on a regular basis. As an interim measure, until (hopefully) all households in South Africa have access to running water, water tanks should be subsidised or granted by the government to poor communities.

At the other end of the spectrum, a high-income mansion can also benefit from water tanks that will make life easier for its occupants. No matter how much money a person has in South Africa, they have no control over municipal water supply cuts as well as other municipal water safety issues (which are, unfortunately, becoming more prevalent in many of South Africa’s towns and cities). Have a water tank or a series of water tanks on the property for storing rainwater or even municipal water, will ensure that the residents will be spared the discomfort of extended municipal water supply outages. A series of 5000 litre tanks or even 10000 litre tanks that are kept full, as a reserve water supply, could last a household many days or even weeks while water supply cuts or contamination issues prevail.
