Water tanks for urban properties where space is limited

Townhouses and many urban properties are built to maximise valuable space. The result is that there is often very little space on the property for extras like water tanks. Choosing the right size and type of water tank can ensure maximum water storage capacity that uses a minimum of space.

Whereas rural areas and peri-urban properties have the luxury of space and can easily have large 10000 litre, 15000 litre and 20000 litre tanks installed, the city-dweller must find a water tank or water tanks that will squeeze into the available space.

One way of overcoming the space issue is to choose water tanks that have a small diameter but are relatively tall. JoJo Tanks’ 750 litre Slimline range of water tanks fit the bill perfectly. The JoJo Slimline tanks are also attractive and need not be hidden (these tanks are available in a ‘marble’ finish – the ‘Marbleline’ range – these can blend in well with smart home exteriors). Slimline tanks can also be installed in series so a number of these 750 litre tanks can provide useful water storage capacity.

An alternative option for properties with restricted space, are underground water tanks. It is easier to install underground water tanks during the construction phase of a building but they can also be retrofitted to existing properties. JoJo Tanks manufacture a 6000 litre underground water tank which is so robust and well-designed that it can even be installed under driveways. This is the ultimate in ‘space saving’ and one or two 6000 litre underground water tanks provide substantial water storage capacity.

Another possible option where space is limited, is to incorporate a suitable water tank platform in the architecture of the building. Normal vertical water tanks can then be installed above, taking up no space on the sides of the building. An added advantage is that the height will increase the water pressure from the tanks allowing for a smaller booster pump to be installed (or no pump at all). This option should be properly planned for in the construction phase of the building and the platform suitably designed to withstand the water tank’s weight (remember that a 5000 litre water tank weighs 5 tonnes when full!).
