The Importance of Water Storage Tanks

The Importance of Water Storage Tanks

Access to clean water is a basic human right, yet supply inconsistencies put this necessity out of reach for millions worldwide. Water storage tanks are a pivotal line of defense, serving as essential buffers against variability.

By banking reserves during times of abundance, these reservoirs sustain continuity when scarcity strikes. Water tanks safeguard communities against life?s uncertainties. Water storage empowers society to harvest sustainability despite growing environmental unrest. 

Benefits of Water Tanks

Enabling Access During Shortages

Water storage tanks create reliability during shortages by banking excess water from mains or rainfall during times of abundance. This backup reserve alleviates large-scale seasonal deficiencies and unexpected interruptions from pipe damages.

Tanks conserve monsoon rains for dry months or emergency backups when infrastructure fails, offering a water bank to sail through supply inconsistencies smoothly. They also enable key users like farms to capture rainwater for preservation across crop-growing seasons.

Providing Pressure and Flow Consistency

Inadequate water pressure is a nuisance many tackle, impeding everything from showers and washing to efficient irrigation. Water tanks overcome this by storing water at an elevation higher than output points. This creates a gradient for gravity to exert pressure, providing consistent and adequate flow even in low-pressure systems.

Facilitating Gravity-Fed Water Supply

Harnessing gravity eliminates the need for pumps, allowing simple and sustainable water distribution. Storing water in overhead tanks facilitates supplying water downhill to villages, fields, and devices without electricity. Tanks make vital gravity flow systems possible - we could self-sufficiently water crops without complex irrigation infrastructure.

Storing Rainwater and Greywater for Reuse

With water conservation rising in priority, rainwater harvesting is an obvious opportunity. Capturing copious monsoon rainfall in tanks allows year-round reuse for non-potable needs. Similarly to washing machine discharge, greywater can be stored and recycled for flushing. Tanks enable this productive reuse that takes the pressure off freshwater demand.

Key Applications of Water Tanks 

Residential Water Storage

Reliable piped water is a luxury, with many Indian housing colonies depending on delivered water stored in underground sumps or rooftop tanks. These act as household reserves to overcome supply interruptions. Even urban apartments invest in tanks for overhead storage and pressure.

Agricultural Water Storage

Rainwater storage tanks enable farmers to overcome monsoon dependence. By collecting rainy season excess in surface or underground tanks, reserves are created to continue irrigating fields, sustain livestock and practice fish farming in dry spells.

Emergency and Disaster Preparedness

When natural disasters like floods and cyclones strike, drinking water is one of the most vital needs. Water tanks have immense life-saving utility then - strategically placed tanks at evacuation shelters and hospitals provide reliable water until infrastructure recovers.

Industrial Water Storage

Industries require vast storage capacities from food processing plants to mines for operations, backup and firefighting reserves. Made from steel, concrete or brick, these gargantuan tanks often exceed 100,000 litres!

Considerations When Selecting Water Tanks

Tank material 

Opting between steel, concrete, plastic or fibreglass tanks depends on factors like target lifespan, durability, transportation/installation ease and cost. Rustic steel suits farms, while rooftops employ plastic.

Storage capacity  

Calculating total water demand, including household use, livestock, crops, gardens and emergency reserves, assists in deciding the ideal tank capacity from 100 litres to over 100,000 litres for homes and industry, respectively.  

Space requirements 

Available installation space guides choosing between tall cylindrical, flat square, or compact, slim tanks. We opted for slim tanks suiting our rooftop space, supplemented by larger ground tanks.  

Placement: Above or below  

Underground tanks save space, while surface tanks utilise gravity for pressure. Combine tanks across locations to avail associated advantages. Our farm uses ground-level and overhead tanks in tandem for versatile pressure-driven supply.


FAQ about Water Storage Tanks

Q- What is a water storage tank?

Ans- A water storage tank is a container used to hold water for later use. Water tanks come in various shapes, sizes and materials and are used to store fresh water, greywater or rainwater to provide reliable ongoing water availability.

Q- What size is a 1000-litre water tank?

Ans- A common residential 1,000-litre water tank typically has dimensions around 1820mm x 1220mm x 1675mm (LxWxH). This cylindrical tank with a diameter of 1220mm has a total height of 1675mm when full.

Q- What is the price of a 10,000-liter Sintex tank?

Ans- While prices can vary, an average cost for a 10,000-liter capacity Sintex plastic water storage tank would typically be around 18,000 to 25,000 Indian Rupees. Larger capacity tanks over 10,000 litres may cost more.
