What do you need to know before buying a water tank?
Before you buy a water tank, you’ll need to decide which size best meets your requirements. The tank that you choose will depend on the space available, your budget, what you’ll use the water for and how long you want the water to last in case of emergencies.
It’s advisable to invest in a larger JoJo tank so that you have a sufficient supply of water. With proper planning and the right skills, your gutters can easily be adjusted to transport water into the tanks. Most roofs are suitable; however, thatch roofs cannot be used for rainwater harvesting.
You also need to consider the fittings and accessories to go with your tank. This can include your filtration systems, water tank level monitors, lids, taps, connectors, pipes, fittings, stands, and water pumps.
What are the different solutions JoJo tanks offer you?
- Aboveground rainwater tanks
This solution lets you accumulate water whenever it rains, so you’ll have to install a pre-filtration solution. You’ll also need suitable guttering and piping to transport the water to the tank.
- Municipal backup
This solution consists of the water tank being connected to the main water supply and fills up the tank when water is available in the mains. This is a good backup to have in the event of water cuts, as it provides you with an uninterrupted, pressured water feed, but more importantly, this water is clean and safe for household use and consumption.
- Fully integrated solutions
The fully integrated system is a combination of rainwater harvesting and the municipal backup. This solution requires half of the tank to be filled with municipal water, which enables you to use the rest of the tank for rainwater harvesting. The water can be filtered and sterilised to be used for domestic water supply.
While it’s easy to install a smaller JoJo tank, bigger water tanks may require help from a professional. It’s important to install the tank on a smooth and level surface that provides a stable base. Level paving is a suitable place to position your tank. Alternatively, you can use a specially designed stand or have a concrete plinth constructed.
With so many advantages to buying a JoJo tank, it’s easy to see why they are so popular. Looking for a backup water supply? Find JoJo tanks for sale on Junk Mail today.
