What is the ideal size for a residential water storage tank?

A typical residential water storage tank ranges from 200-5000 Ltr, depending on your water usage, family size, and intended use (e.g., rainwater harvesting, emergency backup).

Common materials for water storage tanks include Virgin Polyethylene, Fiberglass, and Concrete. Polyethylene is often preferred for its durability and low maintenance.

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) pipes have a relatively long lifespan, typically ranging from 50 to 100 years or more. This longevity is due to PVC's resistance to corrosion, rust, and chemical degradation. Proper installation and maintenance practices can help ensure PVC pipes reach their maximum lifespan.

You choose any color you prefer based on personal preference or aesthetic considerations. However, darker colors like black may absorb more heat from sunlight, potentially causing water temperature to increase slightly. Conversely, lighter colors such as Green, White,Marble, Yellow, Orange, Blue, etc. may reflect more sunlight and help keep water temperatures lower. Ultimately, the choice of color is up to you, and it should not impact the tank's functionality as long as it is made from a suitable material for water storage.

The best water tank for your home depends on factors such as space availability, water usage needs, and budget. Common options include polyethylene tanks, fiberglass tanks, stainless steel tanks, and concrete tanks. Each has its advantages in terms of durability, cost, and suitability for different applications. It's best to assess your specific requirements before choosing the most suitable option for your home.

The lifespan of plumbing pipes varies depending on factors such as material, usage, and maintenance. Generally, copper pipes can last 50+ years, while PVC pipes have a lifespan of 50-100 years. Galvanized steel or iron pipes typically last around 20 to 50 years. Proper maintenance and timely repairs can help extend the lifespan of plumbing pipes regardless of the material.

Both steel and plastic water tanks have their advantages. Steel tanks are durable and can withstand extreme conditions, but they may be prone to rust over time. Plastic tanks, on the other hand, are lightweight, resistant to corrosion, and easier to install. Virgin Plastic drinking and cooking tanks are preferred for their rust-free nature, offering protection against numerous diseases. Ultimately, the choice of best quality water tank depends on factors such as budget, durability requirements, and personal preference.

The choice between CPVC pipe (Chlorinated Polyvinyl Chloride) and UPVC (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) pipes depends on the intended application. CPVC pipes are suitable for hot water systems due to their higher temperature resistance, while UPVC pipes are typically used for cold water systems. Consider factors such as temperature requirements, budget, and local building codes when making your selection.

Yes, UPVC pipes & Fittings (Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride) are considered safe for drinking water. UPVC pipes are non-toxic and resistant to corrosion, making them suitable for conveying potable water. However, it's essential to ensure that UPVC pipes are installed correctly and comply with relevant safety standards to maintain water quality. Regular maintenance and inspections are also recommended to ensure the integrity of the piping system

Not necessarily. While the complexity of installation can vary based on factors like tank size and location, many water tanks come with straightforward installation instructions. For smaller above-ground tanks, DIY installation is often feasible with basic tools and skills. However, larger or underground tanks may require professional assistance, particularly for excavation and plumbing connections. Always consult manufacturer guidelines and consider enlisting professional help for more complex installation

Regularly clean and disinfect the tank, check for leaks or damage, and replace filters if applicable. Regular maintenance is essential for ensuring the cleanliness and longevity of a plastic water storage tank. Here are some simple water tank cleaning tips.

No, our tanks are designed to ensure that drinking water remains free from any unpleasant taste or odor. Our tanks are made from food-grade materials that are specifically formulated to be safe for storing potable water. Additionally, proper cleaning and maintenance of the tank can help prevent any potential issues with taste or odor.

Common choices include PVC (affordable, easy to use), hdpe pipe for agriculture (flexible, durable), and CPVC (hot water applications).

Don't wait for a water crisis! Look for signs such as water stains on walls or ceilings, unusually high water bills, or the sound of running water when no fixtures are in use.

The main difference between aboveground and underground tanks lies in their installation location. Aboveground tanks are installed on the surface, usually in a visible location, and are typically easier to access for maintenance and monitoring. Underground tanks, as the name suggests, are buried beneath the ground's surface. They are often preferred for aesthetic reasons and space conservation.

Insulate exposed pipes in cold weather, use heat tape, or drain pipes during freezing weather.

Secure lids, label potable water tanks, and prevent mosquito breeding by covering openings with mesh.
