There can be multiple reasons for buying a water tank for your home can be numerous; from wanting to store rainwater, to wanting to conserve water, to being forced to store water because the area you live in might be in a drought, or to store fresh water. The reasons for storing water are numerous, and with water becoming a scarce resource for most of us, storing water becomes increasingly important in today’s society. Despite the reason, the numbers of homes that own water tanks have increased dramatically, and it is a good idea to own a water tank – even if it is just used for emergencies, it is always better to be prepared for all situations.
Water storage tanks used to be made out of wood, and have been made out of wood for hundreds of years – and can last for a long time if they are maintained well. However, one issue with wood is that wood tends to swell, or get warped, because of the moisture. Therefore, though wooden tanks may have an aesthetic appeal to it, the maintenance cost may be high.
Steel tanks are often used industrially, to store a variety of liquids – and are preferred because of their strength, and the fact that it’s possible to store a large amount of water. Steel tanks are often made into units of themselves, and can easily be shipped or transported, or designed on site.
Concrete tanks can be pre-made and shipped to the site. Due to their weight, concrete tanks require heavy machinery, but most concrete tanks tend to las for fifty years, or more.
Fiberglass tanks have numerous advantages – the biggest advantage being their strength-to-weight ratio, allowing fiberglass tanks to be built almost anywhere. Another advantage is the fact that fiberglass tanks won’t rot or get rusted, and so the maintenance costs for fiberglass tanks are relatively lower.
Polythene water storage tanks, however, are the most popular – as they are light in weight, strong and durable, easy to work with and easy to install. The fact that they are rotationally moulded means that there is no seam, so leaks are prevented; and they do not require a special foundation, and can be built on any base, including pavement. These tanks are added with UV inhibitors as well, adding to the lifetime of these tanks, which currently stands at fifteen years, or more.
