10 top reasons to install a polyethylene water tank

Buying and installing a plastic water tank (or water tanks) at a home or business is a wise decision, especially in water scarce South Africa.

Here are 10 reasons why installing a water tank is an excellent idea:

  1. A back-up water supply from your existing water source stored in water tanks (whether that be municipal, borehole or from other sources) ensures that there will be water during power supply cuts or other disruptions.
  2. Rainwater can be harvested off rooftops and stored in rainwater tanks – also as a back-up water supply or to supplement your existing water supply. This saves money on your water bills!
  3. Rain water tanks on a property help to ensure a degree of self-sufficiency – important where municipal water supplies are unreliable or of suspect quality or both.
  4. Rainwater in rainwater tanks can be stored and used on lawns and gardens during the dry season – even if water restrictions are in place, your rainwater will be free from these restrictions and your garden will flourish (rainwater has also been shown to be far better for plants than chemical-laden municipal water).
  5. Filling swimming pools can be a costly exercise and may be frowned upon in a water scarce country. Rainwater harvested and stored in water tanks can be used for this purpose – for free!
  6. Water scarce nations such as South Africa and Australia are often plagued by bush fires during the dry season; have a few water tanks on the property could be a lifesaver for fighting fires.
  7. Water tanks, neatly and correctly installed, will always increase the value of the property – whether it is a residential or business property.
  8. Filtered rainwater is arguably is arguably the best water to drink; especially when compared to municipal water that not only smells and tastes unpleasant but may contain chemicals such as chlorine which could be detrimental to human and animal health over the long term. Use the rainwater from your rainwater tanks for drinking only if appropriately filtered (in case it has been contaminated by debris on the roof and in the gutters).
  9. Bathing or showering in rainwater is a much more pleasant experience than using municipal water. Many who bath in rainwater notice that their skin and hair is much healthier.
  10. Rainwater harvesting reduces stormwater runoff in urban areas and thus reduces stream bank erosion and pollution of local water courses. Do your bit for the environment and install a rain water tank!
