An excellent article written in the South African context; choose the best water tank for the situation. In our case, we recommend JoJo Tanks products; there should be a JoJo tank for just about any application and situation.
Rainwater tanks can be one of the most expensive components of a rain harvesting system, but it is probably the most important aspect of a successful installation.
It is very important that all the rainwater is diverted to a central storage tank. Having many small water tanks all over the premises defeats the objective of using rainwater effectively from a central point.
The water tank material must be solid to prevent any ingress of light into the tank. Ingress of light will allow algae to grow inside the tank
Polyethylene water tanks
Fibreglass water tanks
Galvanised steel water tanks
Concrete water tanks
If designed correctly rainwater tanks will overflow 2-3 times per year. Ensure that the overflow is connected to a storm water drain or soak pit. An uncontrolled overflow will undermine the water tank foundations and structure which will ultimately damage your rainwater tank.
It is recommended that you install a pump with a rainwater tank installation
Using gravity to supply water from a tank is not always feasible. Example – If the tank is situated 2m above where the water is require and the tank is filled with 2 m of water, the discharge pressure is only 40KPa. Normal household water pressure ranges between 250KPa and 400KPa. It can thus be a very slow process to drain the water from the water tank if you just have a tap connected to it. In other cases, the water tank may be placed on a tank stand.
